Happy Birthday Apple App Store

By Steve Simmerman | 07/11/2013 | 3:09 PM

Hard to believe that the Apple App Store is 5 years old this week especially when you consider that it started with a mere 500 app when launched.  The numbers are staggering:

  • 50 billion apps have been downloaded
  • that's 800 apps/second
  • more than 2 billion apps a month

and there is no end in sight. It's exciting to see how many apps are making it into the supply chain software world these days.  I did a simple google search for "supply chain apps" and an amazing 31,500,000 results were found. So I guess supply chain apps are here to stay for the foreseeable future.

If you have a particularly good supply chain app, let us know.  Just post a comment to this blog and share it with the rest of us.

Happy hunting out there in app world!
