$1 billion of that came from December alone

Apple boasted 2013 as "the best year ever" in terms of App Store sales and downloads with over $10 billion in purchases total for the year. 

According to an Apple press release, customers spent $1 billion in the App Store for December 2013 alone. During that month, customers downloaded nearly 3 billion apps, marking a successful holiday season for the tech giant. 
 
“We’d like to thank our customers for making 2013 the best year ever for the App Store,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “The lineup of apps for the holiday season was astonishing and we look forward to seeing what developers create in 2014.”

Apple added that developers of iOS apps have now made $15 billion from the App Store. 

The App Store now offers over 1 million apps total for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch in 155 countries.

Devil's advocate, but aren't most of the apps on the apple app store free?

Both the android market place and the apple app store have tons of free software, you don't need to spend any money. I very rarely have. Never spent a dollar on the apple app store for my first year but I benefited tremondously from it's selection and ecosystem. (iPhone 3G was my first smart phone due to carrier circumstances that made it the only phone able to tether for free.)
