Apple Celebrates '5 Years of the App Store' With Poster Sent to Reporters




Tim Bradshaw, a tech reporter with the Financial Times, received this poster from Apple celebrating the upcoming 5-year anniversary of the App Store.

The App Store, which originally launched on July 10, 2008, has seen more than 50 billion app downloads across nearly a million individual apps.

Apple sent a similar promotional item to reporters to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iTunes Store, though that version included a gift card redeemable for 100 songs hand-picked by the iTunes staff.

Nice poster All for something Steve Jobs initially likely didn't want.

Amazing to see a concept get such quick adoption. It doesn't even seem that long ago we didn't even have cell phones.

Kids today are living in a vastly different world to the one that I knew growing up.

It's amazing when you consider that Steve Jobs didnt initially want third party apps on the iPhone.

Ironically when Jobs first described apps for the iPhone they were all going to be Webapps and would be run online. People complained about them not being native. Had this process been more widely adopted we'd all live in a platform agnostic world of HTML5 apps without a walled garden.

Instead people complain about how Apple locked everyone in, stifled innovation and copied Android. Make your minds up.

Steve's original vision will become reality soon. More and more apps are moving towards 'web only' functionality, as these phones are becoming more powerful and webapps are universal.

I don't really see the point of this at all... it's hardly like any reporters are going to give them favourable articles because they got sent a poster is it? They could at least have made the file available for everyone to see, some people outside the world of journalism might actually be interested.

That's what makes it 'Collectible'. If everyone had one it wouldn't be very sought after.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Apple didn't send Glenn Greenwald a poster...

Well the problem is that these idiotic analysts don't factor in iTunes/App store and the sheer volume of revenue it's generating.

If this was anyone else but Apple, they'd be touting/shouting this from the mountains as phenomenal.

Very cool. It's quite an achievement. It turned software distribution and pricing on it's head.

exactly.

strange that they dont thank the devs, consumers and hackers for making this device what it is instead of the glorified calculator that was supposed to rely purely on webapps (something wouldnt even work 100% today)

all I got to say is thank you hackers for jailbreaking the first iPhone and making an App Store in an iPhone a reality.
