The iTunes AppStore has been an undeniable hit for Apple and the company certainly isn’t shy letting people know people about download numbers every time a big milestone is reached. Back in August Apple announced it passed the 60 million download mark a mere month after their application marketplace went live, at a rate of 2 million downloads per day, and now that number has grown to 300 million.

The news comes in the form of a couple of ads placed in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. The ads highlight some of the applications available for the iPhone, but the print on the bottom reveals both the 300 million figure and also that the AppStore now offers more than 10,000 iPhone and iPod touch applications. Quite an achievement, indeed, yet we are left wanting to know how many of those applications were free versus paid downloads.
