All those awesome apps and a lot of crappy ones too!

All those awesome apps and a lot of crappy ones too!

It feels like it was yesterday I printed off this poster marking what I thought was a crazy amount of apps: 10,000! That number is well over 800,000 now and they’ve been downloaded almost 50 billion times. Almost.

This isn’t the first time Apple’s given away money for being the person to download the Xth app, but it’s always worth knowing, so I can try to jump on that! The $10,000 is in the form of an iTunes gift card and you don’t even need to have an Apple device, although I don’t know what you would do with that gift card if you didn’t have an iDevice. I don’t think you can sell it on eBay in such a large denomination I doubt Apple with break it up into smaller sizes.

Here’s the countdown and the entry form for all of us that don’t have iDevices.
