Download the 50 Billionth app on Apple’s App Store and win $10,000 Gift Card

Apple announces a new contest where users can qualify for a $10,000 app store gift card if they are the lucky ones to download the 50 billionth app.

Apple’s App store is serving up millions of app downloads everyday. With apps for iPod, iPhones, iPads, the app ecosystem has amplified the number of apps downloaded form the App store. The number of app downloads is fast reaching 50 Billion. Apple has launched a new contest which will rewards people who download apps from the app store.

App store 5 billion downloads

  • The first prize is a US $10,000 app store gift card. The winner is the user who completes the 50 billionth app download for the app store.
  • Additional prizes include $500 gift card for the next 50 customers who download an app.
  • Ideally the person taking part in this competition has to be atleast 13+ years old (or the¬†eligible¬†age based on country) and total app download limit per day is 25 apps.
  • These apps do not need to be purchased, even the free ones are included in the app downloads.

You can read the complete set of rules at this page.

The chances of winning this prize though small, it might be a good idea to download those apps you wanted this month, just in case you hit the jackpot.

This is a very different way to promote more app downloads than Google which offered discounts on App purchases to celebrate its 25 billion app downloads milestone.
