iPhone Apps Store Growing Twice as Fast as iTunes Music

Everyone was impressed last month when Apple announced moving 30 60 million downloads through the new iPhone Apps Store, bringing in $30 million of revenue (or a million dollars per day). Well, growth downloads more than doubled this month, bringing a total of 100 million downloads (and somewhere around another $70 40 million of software revenue). This has some interesting implications.

[Edit: to clarify, Apple first announced selling 10 million apps in the first 3 days, then announced 60 million downloads July 11, and most recently announced on September 9 “more than” 100 million downloads. The graphic above was corrected to show this. iPhone app sales compared to iTunes Store music has actually been four times greater at the two month milestone.]
