Not even two weeks ago, we told you that Apple announced its 3rd app download milestone giveaway. Today, we get to follow up on this to tell you that said landmark has been reached–the 50 billionth app has now been downloaded. As we mentioned previously, Apple has expanded on this giveaway greatly this time around. Not only will the grand prize winner be receiving a $10,000 app store gift card, but the 500 subsequent downloads will be receiving a prize as well in the form of a $500 gift card.
Interestingly, Google today announced its Hangouts app which will undoubtedly become one of the top iOS downloads within days. The app is actually crippled for me at the moment, but I still think it would be funny and ironic to see it be the 50 billionth app. Apple has yet to announce the winner, but stay tuned to the contest’s official page to be sure you weren’t the lucky 50 billionth downloader.
