Here’s to the next billion apps!

For all the talk of the iPhone not being a gaming device it sure looks like the top 10 paid applications to date are all games. 1 Billion downloads today, and every single one of the top applications are games, with the exception of four. That’s a lot of sales for an industry that the phone “couldn’t” compete with. Anyway, 1 Billion applications sold in a little over 8 months is pretty damn exciting. I wonder what 30% of those sales were.

A huge congrats goes out to Apple, and more importantly, all those application developers out there who’ve made the appstore a success. Without you guys I’d have no way to kill time between meetings and blog posts. *Cheers* We’ll keep our eye out for the winner of the billion download contest and let you guys know who the lucky person was once we find out!

Just a little aside in case you missed it earlier. The iPhone is a gaming device and it’s already competing with the DS in spectacular fashion. If you’re looking for app recommendations for your touch or iphone check out our apple a day feed.
