The App Store Breakdown, Visualised

A lot of numbers get tossed around about just how big Apple's App Store is. But what's really interesting is how quickly it's grown - shown here in all its charted glory. And my goodness, the games.

This infographic from Meet the Boss (click image to embiggen) is actually a few different charts in one, each with its own notable nuggets. Quick highlights: games rule, submissions are down, and dollar apps seem to be the sweet spot.

A lot of that might be intuitive, sure, in a general way. But what's got my attention is the staggering scale, speed, and size - especially considering that just over two years ago, there was no App Store at all. [Meet the Boss]
