US App Store: 500,000 apps later

According to 148apps, the US App Store has unofficially seen over 500,000 apps line its shelves since it debuted in June 2008. Only 400,000 or so remain live on the App Store today, for a variety of reasons, but that's still an incredible number.

Let’s get geeky and take a look at some numbers. From that nearly three years of data we know that you’d need a 7.5 terabyte iPhone to hold all of the apps available at once on your device. I guess we have a new high end target for the storage limit of the iPhone 5. Oh, and it would cost you $891,982.24 to buy all of the apps.
