Practically every other day we see new apps being released for the iPhone and iPod touch. Apple recently announced that over three billion apps have been downloaded from its App Store by iPhone and iPod touch users worldwide.

In nearly 77 countries, iPhone and iPod touch users can select from a multitude of apps ranging in every possible category. Right from games, business, news and sports to health, reference and travel, the applications are just a click away.

“Three billion applications downloaded in less than 18 months — this is like nothing we’ve ever seen before”, shared Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “The revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience unlike anything else available on other mobile devices, and we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon”.

With consumers too pledging their devotion to the App Store, the number of downloads from the store have certainly augmented.
