Apple’s App Store took half a billion dollars in revenue in the first week of 2015

Apple has announced that the App Store set a weekly record in the first week of 2015, bringing in nearly half a billion dollars in spending on apps and in-app purchases. New Year’s Day 2015 was the biggest day of sales in the service’s history.

That headline record follows what was, in itself, a record-breaking year for the App Store. Apple also announced today that billings from the App Store rose 50 percent over the year with apps generating $10 billion in revenue for developers.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.
