It is said that Apple reached 500,000 apps in the app store in the recent weeks which has meant a massive growth of apps since April. In January 2011 there were only around 350,000+ apps which has meant that the app store has actually grown by 43% in just a few months. It is said that of all the apps in the app store, about 140,000 of them are iPad apps whilst the rest are for the iPhone and iPod Touch devices. This huge size of the app store obviously has many advantages for the users of the iPhone and iPad devices and the app store is also said to be growing by around 15,000 apps per month, that’s why now it reached 500,000+ apps there.
