All has been fairly quiet on the Apple front lately, typical of this time of year. Everyone at Apple is tucked away developing and fine-tuning the next gadget. Meanwhile, the App store continues to bring in big money for Apple and app developers worldwide. We download 800 apps per second!
The 50 billionth app was downloaded by Brandon Ashmore from Ohio and he was rewarded with a $10,000 app store gift card. The app he downloaded was ‘Say the Same Thing’.
Since opening in 2008 with just 500 apps available, the app store has grown to have more than 850,000 apps currently.

The iPad Mini has been in the New Zealand market for 5 minutes and there is already talk about the next Mini model. The Mini has been selling well in our stores but there have been mixed reviews surrounding it.
