Apple just announced that more than three billion apps have been downloaded from its revolutionary App Store by iPhone and iPod touch users worldwide. Just back in September the downloads reached 2 billion.

"Three billion applications downloaded in less than 18 months—this is like nothing we’ve ever seen before," said 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."

The numbers are unimaginable high, but when I look at my app download behavior I understand it.
There is almost not a single day where I am not installing something new.

Apple was very hesitant in the beginning to let developers take charge and even had them not communicate about developing for the iPhone. Now apps and the developer community are one of the biggest advantages of the iPhone.
