Apple App Store Hits 25 Billion Downloads!

25 Billion Downloads: Apple’s App Store Hits Giant Milestone

The Apple’s App Store just hit 25 billion app downloads. The countdown just clicked over at about 9.45PM PST. Apple has promised a $10,000 gift card to the person who downloaded the 25,000,000,000 billionth app. The winner will be notified shortly and revealed on the countdown’s web page. Did you guys try your luck? We certainly did!! =)

The countdown began on February 17th and proceeded at an estimated rate of 49 million app downloads a day. It took the wildly popular App Store just four years to reach the 25 billion download mark. By contrast, it took eight-and-half years for 16 billion songs downloaded to be downloaded from the iTunes Store. This is why Apple is taking the App business so seriously. The Android market is doing fine with 10 billion downloads in December 2011. Let’s just stop here.
