Apple usually isn’t shy about its products or its services. Case in point, the first WWDC banner displayed in San Francisco’s Moscone Center pays homage to the AppStore’s unrivalled success in the past year. The banner declares that “One Year Later” Apple’s AppStore is “Light Years Ahead.” If that’s not classic Apple-style, we don’t know what is.
For those not all caught up on their Apple news, the iPhone’s AppStore recently surpassed the 1 billion downloads mark with ease. Less than a year after its launch, iPhone customers downloaded over 1 billion iPhone (and iPod Touch) applications from the AppStore. That kind of adoption is still just a twinkle in the eyes of Nokia and BlackBerry.
Well done, Apple. Continue patting yourselves on the back.
