App Store hits 950k apps, just shy of 1 million

Apple’s App store has just logged 950,000 unique apps, bringing it within spitting distance of a milestone 1 million apps!

The news comes from Appsfire, a service which keeps a very close eye on new and updated apps in the app store. Apple announced at its Q3 earnings report that its App Store featured over 900,000 apps, and over 375 thousand specifically designed for the iPad.

With Apple celebrating App Store milestones in extravagant fashion in the past, it’s very likely that there will be a pretty big celebration when the 1 millionth app finally rolls around, which is around 2 months away at current rates. Apple has seen a large influx of new apps and app updates as developers strive to readjust and take advantage of iOS 7’s various new features.

Apple’s App Store has been active since July 9, 2008, since then it has grown exponentially. It logged its 10 billionth download on January 22 2011, and its 50 billionth download in May of this year.
