    Cupertino-based Apple Inc. has just announced that its Mac-friendly app store has managed to surpass 100 million downloads in less than a year. Launched on January 6th (2011), the Mac App Store is accessible to Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Mac OS X Lion users, and offers thousands of free and paid apps covering Education, Games, Graphics & Design, Lifestyle, Productivity, Utilities and other categories. In contrast, the iOS-only App Store has over 500,000 apps and has surpassed 18 billion downloads.

    "In just three years the App Store changed how people get mobile apps, and now the Mac App Store is changing the traditional PC software industry," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "With more than 100 million downloads in less than a year, the Mac App Store is the largest and fastest growing PC software store in the world."

    For more info about the Mac App Store just see Apple's website.

    They do, the Android Market topped 10 billion recently and the Apple App Store is at 18+ billion. The figure announced today is for the Mac App Store. ;)

    MoonPig got there first :)

    10billion almost useless apps haha, most apps are not really that useful and id be willing to bet that most folks use very few in reality.its more like a gimmic to me personally.
