Apple Celebrates 5 Years of the App Store

app store5

It’s been five years since the launch of the iOS App Store. It’s been five years since the release of iOS–then called iPhone OS–2.0 And what does Apple have to show for it? A lot. This year, the store passed 50 billion downloads, and Apple passed the $10 billion mark in money payed out to developers. So how are they celebrating? As we speculated this morning, Apple is giving away 10 free apps and games. From the hit bird flying game Tiny Wings to the fantastic DJ app Traktor, there’s something for everyone. And if none of these apps interest you, head over to the iTunes store where you can find an interesting timeline of App Store milestones.
