Over 18 billion apps downloaded from App Store

iPhone 4S - talk to me

Scott Forstall of Apple detailed some impressive numbers about iOS and the App Store at the recent launch of the iPhone 4S.

* iOS has won back the #1 mobile-operating system spot with a 43% market share. Android is in second place with 33%. These numbers are as of July 2011, and are reported by ComScore.

* The App Store now has more than 500,000 apps, with 140,000 of those being designed specifically for the iPad.

* Apple’s App Store is the number one store for apps in the world. iOS users are downloading more than a billion apps a month now.

* Total app downloads have now exceeded 18 billion.

* iOS app developers have earned over $3 billion from their apps so far.

Importantly, all these figures are as of July 2011. The second half of 2011 is likely to paint an entirely different picture as Android gains market share.
