Apple's new App Store iterations are already in the works.

"We could not be more proud of what developers have created and what the next 10 years have in store", Apple SVP of Worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller was quoted in a press release. Thanks, in a large part, i due to the suite of productivity apps available on the store, Apple has made huge inroads into the corporate segment. Additionally subscriptions on the App Store, first introduced in 2011, continue to grow and are up 95 per cent from previous year. Companies like Nokia with their N-Gage range of phones had tried their hand at making mobile gaming go mainstream but it wasn't until the launch of the App Store that mobile gaming really took off. Their guidelines weren't clear at times and the approval department became infamous for rejecting apps without much rationale. Over 20 million third-party developers registered on the App Store have also earned over $100 billion through the store.

The App Store has also been the epicentre of a mobile video consumption boom. Even if you don't have an Apple device, for using certain services like Apple Services, you will need to have an Apple ID.

Apple here highlighted how iPad now has over 1.3 million apps designed specifically for the tablet, while there are now over 200,000 educational and reference apps for students.

"It eliminated the friction and overhead of setting up our own distribution and payment systems, making development far more accessible to everyone and letting us focus on our true passion: making the best apps we can", he said.

More than 500 doctors and medical researchers have used Apple's ResearchKit and CareKit software tools for clinical studies involving 3 million participants on conditions ranging from autism and Parkinson's disease to post-surgical at-home rehabilitation and physical therapy.

Tele Columbus' Pyur brand has released a customer service app, My Pyur, for smartphones using both iOS and Android.

Since day one, the App Store has been by far the easiest way for developers to reach the most people with our apps. Without it, AssistiveWare would likely still be a one-man Mac developer.

Last but not least, here is the promised timeline of the most popular apps in the years 2010-2018 (2014 will shock you!). In other words, ten years later, the imitators are still trailing Apple.

Today, Apple says more than 500 million visit the App Store on a weekly basis in 155 countries. "Humanizing apps can only be a good thing and showcasing how they're made will inspire the next generation of creators from every corner of the world". "The App Store opened the door for any developer, from one-person shops to large studios, to come up with a great idea, build a high quality app and seamlessly deliver it to the growing number of customers around the world that today exceeds 1 billion people". Henceforth, it is definitely hard to believe that it has been 10 years to the original App Store.
