Apple App Store To Serve Up 10 Billion Downloads Soon

If you’re one for trumpeting numbers, you ought to know that according to the flip-clock counter that Apple has put up, presumably indicating the number of downloads and not an interval clock, the App Store is soon to hit the 10 billion mark. That’s 10 billion downloads, no word on it being unique downloads, re-purchases or previously downloaded material or if there’s any other number fudging going on, but it is what it is. To commemorate such a glorious event, Apple is giving users the chance to win a $10,000 USD iTunes gift card. Download the ten billionth app for your chance to win. Of course, if you don’t own an Apple device capable of accessing the App Store, you can simply fill out an entry form for your chance to win – no downloads or purchases necessary and you can actually submit it a maximum of 25 times per day.

Good luck to any readers who enter!
