There you go. We just hit the a significant milestone. If you take all the apps ever

Another important note: those are not unique apps. Many developers have apps in both ecosystems (eg: foursquare, twitter, angry birds…) and within each platform many apps are repackaged into new apps (ebooks collection, sports app,…)
But still that is an impressive milestone reached in a few years and an incredible level of activity lead by the developers’ community.
For those asking out of this million 52% are iOS apps.
Next milestones to track: 1 million live apps combined iOS and Android – see our prediction below, should happen by year end – then 1 million apps per OS…
