App Store: is approaching the milestone of 50 billion downloads!

To celebrate this historic milestone, the Cupertino company will be raffling off a “gift card” of $ 10,000 to the person who will download the 50,000,000,000 App number! $ 500 will instead be provided to the first 50 subsequent users.
