Apple App Store: Surpasses 10 Billion Downloads

Apple continues to hit massive mile stones today as they have surpassed 10 billion downloads from the app store. The success has been partially helped along by the app store being made available for not only it Pod / iPhone / and iPads but also the Mac users.

On day one of the Mac app store being available the download count overtook 1 million, this was great news as it is expected that the Mac app store will boost Apple’s earnings in 2011. As intomobile.com say, the 10 billionth download would be rewarded with a $10,000 iTunes gift card, you could get one or two apps with that!

That’s a heck of a lot of downloads, especially when you consider that the app store has only been around since 2008. Of course, the app store is a major contributing factor for people choosing the iPhone over its competitors in the cell phone world and the same goes for those in the tablet market with the iPad.

Head over to iTunes and have a look if you are the lucky winner but you will need to check regularly as there is currently have an image with some text (as shown below) saying, ‘The 10 billion app countdown promotion has ended. Please come back to this page later to see who won.’ keep checking because it could be you.
