Apple’s 10,000,000,000 (billion) App Download Giveaway

Just like last year when Apple gave away a $10,000 iTunes giftcard to the person who downloaded the 10 billionth song, they are doing it this year too. With a little twist, this time its going out to the app-buyer rather than the music-buyer. The app store is amazingly huge, and this proves it!

As Apple says on their website, here:

As of today, nearly 10 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store worldwide. Which is almost as amazing as the apps themselves. So we want to say thanks. Download the 10 billionth app, and you could win a US $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. Just visit the App Store, and download what could be your best app yet.

There are two ways to enter:

1. Download an app from the app store: entered!

2. Non purchase method: Go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/10-billion-app-countdown/entry-form/ fully complete an online entry, including your name, complete mailing address (P.O. Boxes not acceptable), telephone number, and birth date. Once your online entry is complete, hit the “Submit” button to submit an entry. Entry via this method constitutes one (1) entry into the Promotion.

No matter which way that you enter, only 25 entries will be granted per day.

When the contest ends and how the winner is chosen

Sponsor is the sole judging organization whose decisions as to the operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. The prize will be awarded for the entry (either through an app download or through the non-purchase online entry) sent immediately following the download of the 9,999,999,999th app. The potential winner will be determined by the order of the entries received. In the event that more than one entrant would be a winner based on the simultaneous timing of entries, one entrant will be randomly selected from those entrants as the winner. Each entrant’s chances of winning are dependent upon the number of eligible entries received.

So all of you people that own an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad go get an iTunes giftcard so you can start downloading. Now’s the time to get that app you’ve really been wanting but have been debating on. Good luck.
