Ten billion apps can’t be wrong—and if you’re the lucky soul who downloads the ten-billionth app from the App store, it could be very, very right! That fortunate iPhone, iPod or iPad user will win an iTunes gift card worth US$10,000! Never has downloading Angry Birds seemed so lucrative!
At the current rate, we should reach that mark some time over the middle of next week. However, downloads could speed up at any time, which means that 10 billion app barrier could be reached well before then.
While we’re not 100% on whether free downloads count towards the total or not, there’s nothing in the official rules that would suggest that it has to be a paid app. If that’s the case, then OWC is there for you – we’ve got a nice list of free apps that we’ve reviewed over the past year
That way, even if you didn’t win, you can at least be sure you got a good app out of the deal!
