So its Happy Birthday to Apple and its App Store - 1 year old. It’s created a new industry and probably will change the way everyone digests content - now that everything has an app or a widget you dont need to browse for it.

Except for Search - Apple and the Apps store has changed how mobile phone manufacturers think about content with Nokia, RIM and Sony Ericsson all launched (or launching) app stores in the past 3 months.

So its not just the billions of downloads of apps for everything from the weather to ‘where am i right now’ or the ‘find my lost phone’, there are all the people making apps now.

And I can’t forget Android Market which and the HTC Android phones which launched latter than the iPhone / iPod touch, but that means todays Apple iPhone developers, Java developers, etc can now go and convert their apps to Android. And they already ARE.
