Apples App Store delivers 1,000,000,000 downloads in 9 months

That's right, in 9 months the App Store has delivered 1 billion downloads. Amazing! Showing the power of opening the iPhone OS to developers, Apple created an industry of programmers and then provided them a means to deliver them easily and safely. Of course for this, Apple also gets a small share of the price, but so would any store.

From Apple: Applications designed for iPhone are nothing short of amazing. That’s because they leverage the groundbreaking technology in iPhone — like the Multi-Touch interface, the accelerometer, GPS, real-time 3D graphics, and 3D positional audio. Just tap into the App Store and choose from thousands of applications ready to download now.

Too bad others aren't doing this same thing, but Apple has such tight integration with everything that it's simply a no-brainer. Phenomenal!
