Yes, this has happened before. We first covered one of Apple’s app download milestone giveaways at the 10 billion mark, and then again at the 25 billion mark. Amazingly, there was just a little over a year between those two milestones. Today Apple has announced that it is nearing yet another: The number of apps downloaded has doubled in just about 15 months.
Like before, Apple is giving away a $10,000 iTunes gift card to the lucky person who downloads the 50 billionth app.
As of today, nearly 50 billion apps have been downloaded worldwide. And we couldn’t have done it without you. So we want to say thanks. Download the 50 billionth app, and you could win a US$10,000 App Store Gift Card. Or download one of the first 50 apps after that, and you could win a US$500 App Store Gift Card.* Browse the App Store and download your next favorite app.
