Apple's App Store: setting the bar for online app markets

Ben Charny of Dow Jones Newswire wrote an article on Apple's App Store for Smart Money stating that even though it accounts for less than 1% of Apple's revenue App Store is the driving force of iPhone adoption.  We will have to wait and see what happens in the coming months as RIM's BlackBerry App World, Nokia's Ovi (currently Download Store) and Android Market make their mark in this new space.

Also, as I stated in a previous blog entry, even though Apple's App Store has only been available for about 10 months, App Store is about to hit 1 billion downloads currently at 986,084,397 downloads.  Read the blog entry to learn how you can enter for free for a chance to win during their 1 billion downloads sweepstakes.
