Apple celebrates App Store’s first birthday
Apple is promoting some of its apps and games to celebrate its App Store’s first birthday on Saturday (11 June).
In one year, the manufacturer has stocked more than 50,000 applications and hosted more than one million downloads. The concept and success of Apple’s App store has also prompted many others, from Nokia to Carphone Warehouse, to set up a similar offering.
The Apple promotion said: ‘Light a candle and cue the music. OK, forgive us for sounding like doting parents, but we're just so proud – having watched the App Store go from promising newcomer to full-fledged revolutionary.
‘To celebrate its first birthday, we've gathered some of our favourite games and apps. Part fun. Part function. Entirely amazing.’
