Close to half a billion dollars was spent on apps and in-app purchases in the first week of January 2015 alone. This number balloons out to a huge $25 billion since the App Store opened its digital doors back in 2008. This makes the numbers from 2014 even more impressive, as they represent around 40% of the total revenue of the App Store, even considering it's been operating for six years.
