Apple’s high profile App Store just keeps reaching new heights. According to the data shared by Mobclix, an analytics company, the Cupertino’s App Store app count has gone past the magical 300,000 mark which off course includes both paid and free apps.

The 300,000th app made its way to the App Store Yesterday (16th October 2010). The store reached this milestone in around a little more than two years time which itself says a lot about the popularity of the iOS apps as a platform and also how much developers love writing apps for Apple’s mobile platform.

Yesterday saw Apple providing entry ticket to more than 1000 apps which would have brought smiles on the makers of the apps because we all know how difficult it is to get the Cupertinos approval.

Currently, App Store has around 300,975 apps, 206,828 of which are paid and the remaining 94,147 apps are free. It would be interesting to know how many of these apps are universal apps but sadly we don’t have the count of the universal apps. I just wonder if the iPad specific apps have had a major say in the App Store reaching this milestone.
