App Store (i OS)

App Store (i OS)

The Apple App Store is a digital application distribution platform for iOS developed and maintained by Apple Inc. The service allows users to browse and download applications that were developed with Apple's iOS SDK. The apps can be downloaded directly to an iOS device, or onto a personal computer (Macintosh or PC) via iTunes.

Applications in the App Store are generally targeted at iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads, and may take advantage of specific attributes of those devices, such as motion sensors for game controls and cameras for online video calling. Apps may be downloaded for free or for a set cost, and they may include in-app monetization through advertising or purchases. Apple takes 30 percent of all revenue generated through apps, and 70 percent goes to the app publisher.

Famous quotes containing the word store:

    What harm cause not those huge draughts or pictures which wanton youth with chalk or coals draw in each passage, wall or stairs of our great houses, whence a cruel contempt of our natural store is bred in them?
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
