Apple’s App Store Reaches 800,000 Apps According to Canadian Startup AppHero

Last week, BlackBerry unveiled that its next-gen mobile platform, BB10, now boasts 100,000 mobile apps in its ecosystem.

And while that’s an impressive number considering the age of BB10, it appears that Apple has reached a milestone of its own: 800,000 apps. According to Canadian startup AppHero, the 1,720-day-old App Store achieved the number today.
