VentureBeat is reporting that Apple’s iOS application store crossed the 300,000 app threshold in the last 24-hours. The publication cites data from analytics firm Mobclix and notes that Apple added over 1,000 applications in the last few days to achieve the goal. Apple certainly has had plenty of momentum over the last few days. Next week, the company is set to announce quarterly earnings and host a media event where they will presumably release details about their next generation desktop operating system, Mac OS X 10.7; Apple’s stock price is currently at an all-time high of $314.74 per share. Like Apple or not, they are more or less printing money in Cupertino these days.
UPDATE: We asked Apple for comment, here is what they provided us: “Our most recent App Store number was in the Verizon and AT&T releases this past week. Over 280,000.”
