Happy 1st Birthday App Store

App Store If you have been in iTunes on the App Store at all today, you probably noticed the nice little tribute to the App Store turning 1. It doesn’t seem like it has been a year to me! I still remember back in the day when the only way to get games, utilities, multimedia (etc) apps on your iPhone or iPod Touch was through jailbreaking. Apple *cough* copied *cough* the idea and wow has it become something amazing! Not only does it make the iPhone and iPod Touch stand out among devices but, it has given developers the opportunity to be a part of a thriving, money making enterprise! Great job Apple and Happy 1st Birthday App Store!

Apple’s Quote:

Light a candle and cue the music. Okay, forgive us for sounding like doting parents, but we’re just so proud – having watched the App Store go from promising newcomer to full-fledged revolutionary. To celebrate its first birthday, we’ve gathered some of our favourite games and apps. Part fun. Part function. Entirely amazing.

    I would say great job to the Jailbreak developers…who started the whole thing…as you mentioned.

    Yes…I’ve been around since the beginning…even though I started in December…almost 6 months late, I still jumped on the jailbreak bandwagon as soon as I could and have been on that wagon ever since. The apps and Themes and all the other stuff available through jailbreak is just soo worth it.

    I think we need a new thread listing all your App Store Must have apps as well as Jailbreak Must have apps.
