We get it: Apps are the new Internet. If the recent TV commercials weren't hint enough, if redesigning the Apple Stores to put them front-and-center wasn't crystal clear, Apple has sent out an email reminding us that the iPhone Apps, they are good!

Over 15,000 (20,000 but most counts), Apple focuses on ZAGAT TO GO, Flick Bowling, Allrecipes.com, Weightbot, and iHandy Level.

Apple has long said that software, not hardware was their key differentiator, and they're certainly making sure everyone else knows it as well.

Is it working? Are Apps hooking new buyers the way "just the Internet"-focused advertising hooked previous ones?
