Apple announced that the number of downloaded applications from their App Store has just exceeded 1.5 billion.

Just one short year after the launch of the online application store the figures unequivocally suggest that this is one of the most successful projects in the mobile industry history.

What's even better for Apple is that the download rate is increasing - it was less than 3 months ago when the counter on the company's website flipped over the one billion mark. This suggests that since that moment an average of more than 6 million apps have been downloaded every day.

With more than 65,000 apps available to 40 million iPhone and iPod touch consumers in 77 countries those numbers aren't really surprising but they are a success nonetheless. We are only hoping the quantity will improve quality and the percentage of actually useful apps will be too be on the rise in the future.
