According to Macworld, this week marked the first anniversary of Apple’s online App Store for iPhone and iPod touch apps. The App Store opened for business on July 10, 2008 with 552 applications. Today here are 58,000 apps available for download, indicative of the rapidly increasing pace of app development. In terms of downloads, the store surpassed the 1 billion mark in April. Other smartphone retailers are trying to follow Apple’s lead and have opened mobile application stores, including Google, Palm and Nokia, but they have a long way to go to catch up to Apple.
