App Store and iFund
There have been a number of stories about the growth of downloads from the Apple app store since it launched. However, the really impressive number is that the app store is on target to serve up a billion applications by 2009. That is huge by any standards, and incredible for a platform that is less than three months old.
On a similar note, iFund have started a blog to talk about the platform and where mobile development is going (I’m guessing specific to the iPhone though) and to announce new initiatives and developments.
