    I'm pretty sure you could just take the number of characters in a code, multiply it by 36, and square it.

    ??? on the squaring part. It may be cubing, or unsure?

    1/4.73838134 × 10^18

    Can somebody back me up on this? I am not totally confident.

    I believe it would be 36 to the power of 12...
    Or 4.738381338 * 10^18...
    4 738 381 338 000 000 000
    4 quintillion, 738 quadrillion, 381 trillion, 338 billion.

    Different wording for British.

    Great! Now divide that number by the numberof apps in the (appstore x 50) + extras - those already used. Then we get a percent, right?
