App Store Hits 10 Billion Downloaded Apps!

Overnight, the App Store reached its new milestone of 10 Billion downloaded apps! Launching in 2008, the App Store has been extremely successful since day one, taking just over two and half years to reach 10 Billion downloaded apps.

For comparison, it took the iTunes Music Store almost seven years from its 2003 launch to reach the same milestone for music downloads.

As the App Store reaches 10 Billiion Apps, the promotion for hitting the target has ended. Whoever downloaded the 10 Billionth app won a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, however, the winner has not yet been announced.
