Apple's iTunes App Store delivered more than 60 million applications in its first month, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal, with the iPhone maker achieving $30m in sales.
Jobs told the newspaper he has "never seen anything like this in my career for software".
Big sellers included Sega's Super Monkey Ball, which saw over 300,000 downloads in the first 20 days, while Epocrates has seen over 125,000 downloads during its short time in the App Store. The free Facebook application, meanwhile, has been downloaded one million times so far.
The Apple boss also confirmed the company has built-in the ability to remotely disable applications, saying: "Hopefully we never have to pull that lever, but we would be irresponsible not to have a lever like that to pull."
