Apple Begins Countdown to 25 billion App Downloads

The App Store has been around for nearly 4 years, and it is approaching 25 billion downloads. (That's 25,000,000,000!)

To celebrate, Apple is doing a countdown and giving away a US$10,000 (or equivalent) iTunes gift card to the person who downloads the 25 billionth app.

As of today, nearly 25 billion apps have been downloaded worldwide. Which is almost as amazing as the apps themselves. So we want to say thanks. Download the 25 billionth app, and you could win a US$10,000 App Store Gift Card.* Just visit the App Store and download your best app yet.

You can enter by downloading an app from the App Store or alternatively filling out a form on Apple's website. US and Canada residents can also enter by calling 1-866-296-5926.

The promotion will end once the 25 billionth app has been downloaded and will be announced on Apple's website.

Just like with Apple's giveaway on previous milestones, we want to ask, what would you do with US$10,000 to spend on iTunes?

Good luck, it could be you.

  • Good luck everybody.
  • I'd cancel my cable that's for sure
  • Can the gift card be used only in the App Store, or can it be used for iTunes content, as well? If its App Store only, I can't imagine how anyone could spend that much on apps.
  • I think its everything. :)
  • The iTunes giftcard wouldn't help me so I'd put it up on ebay and sell it for $9,500. I priced out my ultimate MacBook Pro and iMac which was $10K so I'd buy the iPad 3 and iPhone 5 with my own money. Then I would order the MacBook Pro and iMac :-) dream come true. Actually scrap that I would buy Apple stocks!!!!!

  • I'd like to say in a respectful way that I'm happy Doyle no longer has a drummer. I've been a huge fan since I was four years old and I LOVE the original sound just as much as everyone else here has written. I do see a very logical reason as to why Doyle added drums to the group in the first place. Part of it is due to the fact that he likes to expirement with his music. What a lot of people don't understand is that many artists get tired of playing the same type of thing every day of the week so he is doing it in order to keep it interesting. It may have hurt his sound and maybe lost some fans, but I think it was an interesting concept to try.
