The Next Web reports that the Cupertino company has approved more than 1 million apps in the last four years, The Next Web points to a tweet by Appsfire, saying “Breaking: today will mark the day the App store has seen 1 million apps ever created since launch (iOS).”.
“Ouriel Ohayon, co-founder of Appsfire, provided some details of how the App Store sits today. Of the one million app submissions since 2008, 493,289 were paid and 158,848 were games. Of the 736,247 apps that are currently live 336,270 are paid (around 45 percent), while 120,065 are games (around 16 percent).”
According to Ouriel Ohayon’s details there are 736,247 apps live, not 1 million. This is because the other 270,000 apps have been removed from the App Store over the years. In total there are 1 million apps approved, not all of them are still live, this may be done the Developer of the app or by Apple.
