App Store: 1st Weekend Downloads Hit 10M

Apple’s App Store, the company’s service for downloading third-party iPhone and iPod touch applications, shot out of the gate with over 10 million downloads in its first weekend. The App Store went online on Thursday, July 10, with over 500 applications available and by Monday, July 14, that number had jumped up over 800.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs commented "The App Store is a grand slam, with a staggering 10 million applications downloaded in just three days."

The iTunes Store-like service hosts games, productivity apps, business tools, location-based social networking applications, and more. Some of the top selling applications from the weekend include Super Monkey Ball, Texas Hold’em, MLB.com At Bat, and Cro-Mag Rally. The most downloaded free apps included Remote, AIM, WeatherBug, PhoneSaber and AOL Radio.

The App Store requires an iPhone, iPhone 3G, or iPod touch with Software version 2.0 and iTunes 7.7. Users can download applications with iTunes, or from their handheld device.

If downloads keep up with the first weekend’s pace, Apple’s App Store will likely prove to be a resounding success.
