Apple's Matrix-Style App Wall Reloaded

Next Story

What happened to the iPad today? A few small things

A year ago, I did a post highlighting Apple’s awesome-looking App Wall. The wall was a series of Apple monitors set up to show the App Store in a Matrix-like way. Arranged by color, each time an app was purchased, it would pulse. Of course, there were “only” 50,000 apps at the time, and Apple still couldn’t show them all on the display. Now there are over 225,000 apps, so Apple had to switch things up this year.

As you can see in the pictures and video below, the new App Wall is perhaps even a little prettier than last year’s model. It shows the top 50,000 apps in the App Store across 30 24-inch LED Cinema Displays. As each app is downloaded it falls into a stack (still color-coordinated) across the displays. Once the display hits 10,800 apps, it resets and starts over with app downloads.

Check out the video below, and pictures below that.
