We all sure spent a lot on apps in 2013. $10 billion worth, in fact, according to Apple.
On Tuesday, Cupertino also announced that App Store sales hit $1 billion in December 2013 alone, the most successful month in company history.
As Macworld points out, it initially took Apple two years to reach $3.6 billion in App Store sales—a figure the company averaged during every quarter of 2013. Last summer, Forrester Research noted that Apple “leads the App Store economy” and that “Apple mobile app developers earned around 2.6 times more revenue than Android developers in Q1 2013.”
