Tim Cook has just announced that over 50 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store. The store now has over 900,000 apps, with 375,000 of those apps iPad-only. Currently there are over 575 million iTunes accounts. Cook has also announced that over $10 billion has been paid out to developers -- $5 billion of that within the last 12 months.
