Yes, mobile applications are pretty popular. Mobile app marketing platform Appsfire said on its Twitter account Monday that Apple’s (AAPL) App Store “has seen 1 million apps ever created since launch.” TheNextWeb caught up with Appsfire co-founder Ouriel Ohayon, who explained that roughly 493,000 of the million apps submitted were paid applications, while around 159,000 were games. In total, there are around 736,000 apps available on the App Store today, meaning that just over a quarter of all apps submitted to the store have since been removed. Apple said last month that it had served more than 35 billion total app downloads from the App Store since it launched in 2008.
