Apple: More than 10M apps downloaded from App Store over weekend

Apple announced yesterday that users of Apple's iPhone and the iPod Touch downloaded more than 10 million applications from the company's new App Store over the weekend. The company already announced that it sold 1 million 3G iPhones over the weekend, which InformationWeek reckons would mean that individual customers likely downloaded multiple applications from the App Store. When Apple launched the iPhone 3G, it at the same time made the phone's operating system available on the 2G iPhones and the Touch as an upgrade, giving both devices the same functionality as the iPhone 3G, which includes access to the App Store.

Apple launched the App Store with more than 500 applications built by third-party developers. By Monday, that number had grown to more than 800, with more than 200 available at no charge and 90 percent of the paid software costing less than $10.
