The App Store hits 40 billion of unique downloads (and counting)

Today with a Press Release Apple SVP of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue announced that the App Store reached the outstanding amount of 40 billion of unique app downloads since the opening, excluding updates and re-downloaded ones.


“It has been an incredible year for the iOS developer community, Developers have made over seven billion dollars on the App Store, and we continue to invest in providing them with the best ecosystem so they can create the most innovative apps in the world.”

The precedent milestone was the countdown for the 2.500.000.000, with a chance of winning a 20.000$ iTunes Card; this happened less than a year ago in March 2012, sign that the App Store is spreading like a wildfire.

How to transfer purchased items from iPhone to iTunes 11 [GUIDE]

iTunes 11 is more than a simple upgrade, which brought a number of new features followed by a complete restyle of the application. Something changed also in the way we synchronize our iPhone or iPad. Because the double-click on the device’s name doesn’t work anymore, here’s a really short tutorial about how to make it possible.


In iTunes, go to the menu bar, and select File > Devices > Transfer purchases from [YOUR DEVICE NAME]. Then it’ll start importing the device’s content in your iTunes Library.

iTunes 11 è stato molto di più che un semplice aggiornamento, che ha portato notevoli cambiamenti seguiti da un restyling completo dell’applicazione. È anche cambiato il modo in cui sincronizziamo i nostri iPhone e iPad, e dal momento che il tasto destro del mouse sul nome del dispositivo non funziona più, ecco una breve guida per ovviare al problema.

Su iTunes, andate nella barra del menu, cliccate quindi su File > Dispositivi > Trasferisci acquisti da [NOME DEL DISPOSITIVO]. Ecco quindi che iTunes inizierà l’importazione dei contenuti acquistati nella libreria di iTunes.
