There’s no denying that the driving force behind the iPhone’s success has been in large part due to Apple’s enormous App Store (who said size didn’t matter?). First launched in July of 2008, it grew in number to a staggering 7 billion downloads last October. And a mere 3 months later, the 10 billion mark is about to be broken. To celebrate, Apple will be giving away a $10,000 iTunes Gift card to one lucky winner.
As of today, nearly 10 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store worldwide. Which is almost as amazing as the apps themselves. So we want to say thanks. Download the 10 billionth app, and you could win a US $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. Just visit the App Store, and download what could be your best app yet.
Aside from purchasing apps, you can also enter the giveaway by submitting the Countdown Entry Form (limit of 25 entries today). So get on cracking and start downloading ’em apps. You never know if you’ll be the 10 billionth app customer. If my math serves me right, that iTunes GC is good for 10,000 one dollar apps and 10 of the App Store’s most expensive app, iVIP Black (aka the “Millionaire’s App”), which comes in at a cool $999. Good luck to all!
