Apple unveiled today that the iPhoneApp Store has now cracked the 500 million downloadmilestone.
iPhone and iPod touch users can currently choose between 15,000 Apps on the App Store.
500 million is a pretty amazing number. There are of course lots of free Apps that users download, where Apple does not make money from, but there are still enough Apps that generate a nice revenue for Apple if the downloads continue to grow in this fast pace.
Just about 5 weeks ago the App Store download counter stood at 300 million.
It will be really hard for Android, Palm, BlackBerry and WinMo to recreate the same adoption as Apple for their App Stores.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
