APPLE INC. said more than 2 billion applications have been downloaded from its APP STORE, marking a milestone for the company's year-old business.
More than 85,000 applications are available to 50 million IPHONE and IPOD TOUCH customers worldwide, Cupertino, California-based Apple said in a statement.
More than 125,000 software designers are registered in APPLE's IPHONE DEVELOPER PROGRAM.
THE APP STORE generates $60 million to $110 million in revenue per quarter for Apple, SANFORD C. BERNSTEIN AND COMPANY analyst TONI SACCONAGHI said in a report last week.
The outside developers, who split revenue with Apple, bring in $140 million to $250 million each quarter, according to the report.
The average cost of a paid Apple program is about $3, Sacconaghi said.
