Apple Counts Up to 10 Billion App Downloads, Offers $10,000 Gift Card as Thanks

On April 10th, 2009, Apple started a contest for those who love the App Store, and downloading applications from it. They announced that they were catching up to the 1 billion downloads mark, and to celebrate the company wanted to hand out a $10,000 iTunes gift card, along with a few other prizes. On April 24th, they closed down the contest, as they officially passed the 1 billion downloads mark. Now, Apple is ready to celebrate again, as they've put up the app download counter again, this time tracking their arrival at 10 billion downloads. And once again, you could win if you're lucky enough.

Just as the last contest outlined, the winner of the $10,000 iTunes gift card will have to be the person who downloads the application that marks 10 billion downloads from Apple's App Store. To be eligible for the contest, you'll need to be at least 13 years or older, and live in a country where the App Store operates. The iTunes gift card won't be just for iTunes, either. If you do win, you'll be able to spread that money around in the App Store as well. Head through the source link below to find the official rules of the contest, and more info.
