Apple is celebrating the 5th anniversary of its App Store and to commemorate this auspicious occasion, they are giving away 10 paid products, not normally free, which include 5 apps and 5 games, but only for a limited time.
And these are decent titles, to boot They include: Barefoot World Atlas, Day One Journal, How to Cook Everything, Over and Traktor DJ for iPhone (and for iPad). Games include: Badland, Infinity Blade II, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, Tiny Wings and Where’s My Water?
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years already. Apple launched the App Store on July 10, 2008 with 500 apps and it was an immediate success with 10,000 million apps downloaded in its first weekend. In 5 years, the App Store has gone from its initial 500 apps to more than over 900,000 to date and a billion is just around the corner. In May 2013, the number of App Store downloads reached a new milestone surpassing the 50 billion mark.
Developers have also profited from creating Apps to the tune of $10 billion US, which Apple has paid to them to date.
