According to new data from Chop, 148apps, and Chillingo, Apple’s iTunes App Store has approved more than 500,00 applications. In an infographic posted on Facebook, the group notes that Apple has worked with 85,569 different developers and that the average price of a paid application is $3.64. Similarly, 37% of all applications are free. The most popular iTunes categories (ranked by downloads), are games (15%), books (14%), entertainment (11%), education (8%), lifestyle (7%), and utilities (6%). If it seems like Angry Birds has been a hit for nearly a year, that’s because it spent 275 days in the No. 1 spot. Apple has yet to confirm these figures and App Shopper, another third-party that monitors the App Store, currently says there are about 499,200 live applications in the store. We expect to hear more on the matter during Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference when it kicks off on June 6th.
