Apple’s App store is heading towards its 50 billionth app download, and to celebrate the occasion they are offering $10,000 to the person that downloads the 50 billionth app. And just in case you miss out on the grand prize, Apple will be offering $500 to the people who download the first 50 apps after. (Still not bad for a second place prize.)
To be a part of the contest Apple has just released a form on the Apple iTunes site that does not need purchasing of any kind but just a name and address. Apple hit the 40 billionth download mark just a year ago, and with iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches flying off shelves, the downloads for Apple to hit the 50 billionth mark will happen a lot quicker than thety probably think.
At the moment the ticker until 50 billion is currently at 49,269,901,xxx (and counting as you read this post), to stay on top of the count down Apple has launched a download counter. app to keep track of the running downloads. So get the downloading until you hit the jackpot.
