Apple has come out this morning with some app stats. They’ve announced that since launching their “revolutionary” App Store in July 2008 they’ve seen over 40 billion app downloads. 2012 saw a massive 20 billion downloads with December making up for 2 billion. In addition, Apple noted that they have over 500 million active accounts and that their “incredible developer community has created over 775,000 apps” – of which 300,000 are native iPad apps – plus paid out an impressive $7 billion to devs.
