To commemorate the event of 10 billion app downloads in Apple’s Appstore, Apple has announced a prize of iTunes gift card worth $10,000 to the lucky person who downloads the 10 billionth app! At the time of writing this post, 83 million downloads are still left before the 10 billion figure is reached. The app download velocity is approximately 340 downloads per second or around 20,000 downloads per minute. Based on a rough calculation behind the envelope, there is still 67 hours left before the 10 billion figure is reached. It’s very difficult to time it..but if you have been considering to try this out, you should start downloading approximately 67 hours from now.. 🙂 Good luck downloading..!
