BlackBerry App World Hits 3 Billion Downloads

App World of Possibilities

RIM launched BlackBerry App World a little over 3 years ago and it has grown steadily since. They just announced that they have served over 3 billion downloads from the official BlackBerry storefront. That does not include third party BlackBerry app stores and other sources and averages out to over 2.5 million downloads a day from App World. It took RIM 786 days to hit the first billion downloads and 210 to hit the second with this last billion taking 176 days. RIM also let out that there are now over 90,000 apps from over 28,000 App World vendors.

Check out the details over at the BlackBerry DevBlog. I wonder when they will hit their next billion? I think they could get there faster if they added coupon/promo codes. (Pretty please?)

  1. App World should have a deal of the day and offer copupon rates, especialy if there going to be the only game in town after BB10 comes out.

  2. Three billion downloads is a huge target to achieve, but I think they will grow even faster as time goes by. I agree with Berry 7, a promotion or “deal of the day” might just seal in another few million hits for them.

  3. I wonder if the 3 billion figure excludes upgrades, and upgrades/downloads of RIM-developed apps (twitter, bbm, etc.) Somehow I doubt it…

  4. Wow that wonderful
