Wow, that's quite a chunk of their business.

Apple announced today that more than 40 billion apps have been downloaded from its App Store for the iPhone and iPad which has led to more than $7 billion in payments to developers.

If Apple paid out 7 billion, you can only imagine how much THEY made. The App Store is making a killing.

You can calculate what they made: Apple takes a 30% cut on everything they sell in the App Store.
So they made 3 billion on the App store for non Apple products.

Math works much better than imagination.
