Apple's App Store Sales Hit Over $10 Billion in 2013

Apple has announced today that it has earned more than $10 billion in 2013 from App Store sales alone. This record breaking sales amount includes over $1 billion in December alone. And Apple customers have downloaded almost three billion apps in last December. This gives earnings of $15 billion to Apple's App Store developers

December 2013 proves to be the most successful month in Apple's App Store history. This is because of the holiday season shopping that customers spent such huge amount in the last month of previous year. And the app download rate was also remarkable. Apple thanks all of its customers for record breaking App Store sales in last year.

Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue said, “We’d like to thank our customers for making 2013 the best year ever for the App Store. The lineup of apps for the holiday season was astonishing and we look forward to seeing what developers create in 2014.”

The popular apps of 2013 include many surprise hits like Ellen DeGeneres’ Heads Up, ProtoGeo’s Moves, Simon Filip’s Afterlight and Kevin Ng’s Impossible Road. The most successful gaming apps on the App Store were created by international developers. These include Candy Crush Saga, Puzzles & Dragons, Minecraft, QuizUp and Clumsy Ninja.

However, there are some like Duolingo (United States), Simogo (Sweden), Frogmind (UK), Plain Vanilla Corp (Iceland), Atypical Games (Romania), Lemonista (China), BASE (Japan) and Savage Interactive (Australia) emerged as developers to watch in 2014. 

And the launch of iOS 7 actually helps App developers to make powerful and amazing apps by using the redesigned user interface and more than 200 new features and APIs present in the latest OS. Apple said that Evernote, Yahoo!, AirBnB, OpenTable, Tumblr, Pinterest, American Airlines and many other developers "re-imagined the user experience, bringing content to the forefront while increasing the overall efficiency and performance of their apps."

Apple's App Store offers more than one million apps for its iOS users worldwide in 24 different categories, including newspapers and magazines offered in Newsstand, games, business, news, sports, health & fitness, travel and kids. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in 155 countries around the world can enjoy these 1 million apps with more than 500,000 native iPad apps available on the App Store.
