Apple App Store crosses the 50 billion app downloads milestone

16 May, 2013

Apple has crossed the 50 billion app downloads milestone on the App Store. The store opened up to the public back in July 2008 and since then has gone on to become the biggest and most popular software store in the world.



As we reported before, Apple had a countdown running on their website that showed in real-time the apps being downloaded. The person who would download the 50 billionth app will be getting a $10,000 App Store gift card. The next 50 downloaders will get $500 worth of gift cards. Apple also had a lucky draw where a winner will be chosen at random and get a $500 gift card.

The winners have not been announced yet. Keep checking the link below for further announcements.
