I don't think "sell" is the right verb. Most of the apps people take from iTunes are free so they aren't really selling them. On my iPhone I've got 92 apps (default Apple ones included) and I paid only 11 of them. Ok it's just me, but I doubt that the numbers for all other users are very different :)

eidt: I now see that the PR states "downloaded" and not "sold". Giz you should correct the title of the post!
