Apple Mac App Store tops 100 Million Downloads and App Store has Half a Million Apps

Apple announced new staggering numbers about their app stores.

Apple today announced that over 100 million apps have been downloaded from the Mac App Store in less than one year. With thousands of free and paid apps, the Mac App Store brings the App Store experience to the Mac so you can find great new apps, buy them using your iTunes account, and download and install them in just one step.

The App Store, which now has more than 500,000 apps and where customers have downloaded more than 18 billion apps and continue to download more than 1 billion apps per month.

“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.”

Seems Apple has successfully extended the App Store concept from the iPhone and iPad to the Mac. Developers also seem to be fine to give Apple a 30% cut of their software sales to use the Mac App Store as their sales platform.
