Mobile app discovery and promotion service Appsfire is reporting today that Apple's App store has reached another major milestone by approving it's 1 millionth app. The reports haven't been confirmed as of yet by Apple, and the number doesn't represent the total number of apps available, rather this is what Appsfire is calling the number of apps approved over the life of the App Store.
The Next Web was first to report on the Appsfire findings after the company revealed the findings on its Twitter account.
Ouriel Ohayon, co-founder of Appsfire, provided some details of how the breakdown of the numbers. Of the one million app submissions since 2008, 493,289 were paid and 158,848 were games. Of the 736,247 apps that are currently live 336,270 are paid (around 45 percent), while 120,065 are games (around 16 percent).
It's highly unlikely that Apple will publicly confirm these numbers as the company generally only focuses on the number of available apps that are currently in the App Store. Apple recently announced that the App Store application count had grown beyond 700,000 live apps at its iPad mini launch event but has not shared an updated figure since.
