Apple has announced that iPhone and iPod Touch users have downloaded 1.5 billion iPhone Apps from the App Store in the first year, which is a mind blowing number.

Apple has also announced that the App Store has more than 65,000 iPhone apps and growing at a fast rate.

Apple made the following announcement on their website:

Apple today announced that customers have downloaded more than 1.5 billion applications in just one year from its revolutionary App Store, the largest applications store in the world. The App Store is also growing at an incredible pace with more than 65,000 apps and more than 100,000 developers in the iPhone Developer Program.

"The App Store is like nothing the industry has ever seen before in both scale and quality," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "With 1.5 billion apps downloaded, it is going to be very hard for others to catch up."

Apple had crossed the 1 billion iPhone apps milestone towards the end of April. 1.5 billion iPhone apps downloaded in the first year is very impressive
when you consider that it took Apple around 2 years to sell 1 billion
songs on iTunes.

Congratulations to Apple and iPhone App developers for the mega success of the App Store.
