Today, January 22, 2011, the Apple Apps countup page reached 10 billion as a lucky person has downloaded the 10,000,000,000th Apple App.
They will receive a $10,000 iTunes card and will probably have a few minutes of world-wide fame.
Additionally, the lucky person could also get another $1,000 if they downloaded a photography app, or even a $5,000 iTunes card if they downloaded the FX Photo Studio app by MacPhun.
Tech Crunch tells us It’s a huge milestone in the life of the App Store.
It is a great accomplishment: the number of downloaded apps exceeds the world population which is nearly 7 billion.
The Apple App Store was started on July 11, 2008. Ten billion downloads in under three years is remarkable.
The lucky winner who downloaded the 10 billionth app has not yet been announced.
