Enterprise Mobility: 1 Billion iPhone Apps: eWEEK's 10 Favorite iPhone Downloads
The number of Apps downloaded from Apple's online App Store recently passed the 1 billion mark, some nine months after the App Store was rolled out in July 2008. Currently with 17 million users in 80 countries, the iPhone is a huge part of Apple's overall strategy; Apple shipped about 3.7 million iPhones during the first quarter of 2009, driving strong quarterly results. Over 25,000 applications are currently on offer in the App Store, ranging from enterprise-focused Apps from Salesforce.com, SAP and other companies to fun applications such as Koi Pond, eBay Mobile and Kindle for iPhone. The following Apps are some of the most notable to have appeared in the App Store since its creation-either because they are among the most downloaded, were one of the first (or the billionth), or simply because they remain supremely useful to IT administrators and the general public alike.
