iTunes App Store about to hit 10 billion downloads, win a $10K gift card



countdown-hero20110114.jpgAs of today, there has been nearly 10 billion downloads worldwide from Apple's iTunes App Store. To celebrate they've set up a special page with a live counter to mark the milestone. And if you're the lucky person who downloads the 10-billionth app you could win a $10,000 iTunes gift card, which I'm pretty sure you can't buy anywhere (even if you really wanted to).

Of course, the rules state that everyone who downloads an app from now until the 10-billionth app is downloaded will automatically be entered for a chance to win the $10K. So don't worry about watching the counter to try and time it! Just buy some apps and you're in. There is a 25 app-per-day limit though.

Apple has compiled lists of the all-time favorite free and paid apps too, and you can see those here (link launches iTunes)

What would you do with a $10,000 iTunes store credit? That would buy a ton of tunes and more apps than any iOS device could hold. Too bad you can't use it for Apple hardware.
