Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Apple introduced the iPhone to the world? And when you think about it, the smartphone people have grown to know and love has done so much more than put the Internet in everyone’s pockets; it’s changed the way we think about mobile.
When Apple introduced the iPhone App Store, they couldn’t possibly fathom how popular it would become. The iPhone App Store revolutionized the way software was created and distributed by opening up a platform for developers (Like us!) to link their apps. Today, there are over 2.1 million apps in the store which is up from 500 in 2008. (Source: Intuit and Emergent Research)
Apps have also changed the way we work. App-based companies like Airbnb and Uber have grown from start-ups, to major businesses, spanning the globe. Today, there are over 4 million on-demand workers in the U.S. and that number is only expected to double in next 4 years. (Source: App Annie)
We know which app is our favorite in the iPhone App Store and we’re sure you’ll love it too.
Happy Birthday, iPhone!
