The App Store offers great a value to consumers with 4 billion free applications downloaded to date, but it is not hugely profitable for Apple, as paid-for applications carry an average selling price of $1.49, according to a new analysis.
I thought this was a nice article to see the margins Apple have on their App store.

Not a huge surprise that they say they don't make a lot of money in the App store- it's really just the decorations on top of the icing and cake that's represented by the iphone/ipod/ipad.

The purpose of the App Store isn't to be a huge profit centre for Apple -- the iTunes Store isn't one either. It's to foster an ecosystem.

To that end, both are worth their weight in uranium.
