App Store: 10 billion downloads

Apple reached another milestone this saturday with their highly successful App Store: 10 billion downloads.

Download number 10,000,000,000 was a free app called Paper Glider and was downloaded by a british woman by the name of Gail Davis who shortly after received a call from Apple, telling her she won a gift certificate worth $10,000. For use in iTunes Store, of course… Come on Apple, at least let her use it an Apple Store? 🙂

Apple’s App Store has over 300,000 apps with around 20 million apps downloaded daily.

I’m not sure if I could find $10,000 worth of Apps and music! I wonder if Android or any other marketplace really has a chance to catch up with Apple, unlikely I suspect

I love it. $10,000 to buy music and apps? It’s either Apple’s version of a “lifetime supply of” prize, or it’s fake money that’s easy to give away because they know there’s no way she could ever spend it all.

But still, that’s a pretty awesome number. Ten billion!
