App Store Approaching 10 Billionth App Download
Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 01:00 PM
"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."
The figure above was taken at about 10:58am Pacific time, and at the rate of 1,147,333 apps per hour (according to Cult of Mac), the prediction is early Friday morning this week for the 10 billionth download. If you don't want to download an app, fear not as you can enter simply by filling out this form at Apple (you can enter up to 25 times per day too). Good luck!
