Apple counting down to 25 billion App Store downloads

Apple counting down to 25 billion App Store downloadsAhh, it seems like only yesterday that we were scribbling about the App Store hitting 15 billion downloads.

That was back in July 2011, when we were young and full of hopes and dreams, and now Apple is about to hit another App Store milestone – with a countdown to its 25 billionth download.

“The App Store is about to hit 25 billion downloads”, screams the headline below the app download counter. Interestingly, it appears to be increasing at a rate of almost 1,000 apps per second. Holy furg.

“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,” begins the blurb on the Apple site.

“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.”

If you’re a total cheapskate, you can actually enter to win the US$10,000 prize without buying or even downloading a fart app. Just complete the Alternate Entry Form.
