The iPhone App Market

iPhone Apps n’ Store

The App Store stats summary from April 4th, 2010 is quite revealing.  In the beginning, the first tip-off that Apple was up to something came on December 14th, 1999, when Apple purchased the domain name www.iphone.org, which up through the present day directs visitors to Apple’s main corporate page.  Since that time, Apple has realized some significant growth.  The following stats will reveal that it is quite impressive.

Take a look at the count of active applications that are presently available in the App Store:

  • There are 191,449 total active Apps available for purchase in the App Store.
  • There are 31,734 total inactive Apps.
  • There are 223,183 total Apps.

Infographic: Instant Messaging Facts & Figures

This is another great infographic by Pingdom, this time on Instant Messaging. There are some pretty crazy stats in there like the 47 Billion daily instant messages sent, or the 40 million simultaneous logged in windows messenger users. I see a lot of media plans buying Windows Messenger banners, it’s a popular (and pretty cheap) buy, which is clearly due to the serious amount of impressions they’d serve every day!
