The mobile application market is taking off like wildfire, and it looks like developers are not only having fun but making tons of money as well—at $1.99 per download! The Apple App Store is so successful, the number of downloads is no longer measured in millions; it's gone into the billions—10 billion downloads, in fact, since the App Store opened in 2008, according to court documents filed by Apple recently in its trademark infringement suit against Amazon. No wonder Amazon and its similar-sounding Appstore for Android don't care about a little thing like a lawsuit; there's gold in them there hills.
