Countdown on Apple’s website begins as App Store nears 50 billion downloads

50 Billion App Countdown

If you’re trying to become the winner of Apple’s giveaway for the 50 billionth download from the App Store, I recommend you head on over to and check out the home page.

Apple’s official counter of App Store downloads has begun, and it appears on the home page of the Apple website, along with an iPad and random facts about the number 50 billion. For example, did you know that it would take you 1600 years to count to 50 billion? (Thanks, Apple!) If you want to participate in Apple’s giveaway and win up to a $10,000 gift card to the App Store, begin downloading apps now! The 50 billionth downloader gets the gift card from Apple, and the next 50 get a smaller prize of a $500 gift card. Head on over to the App Store and start downloading!
