Website tracks App Store countdown to 10 billion apps
Is that count down or count up? In either case, visit 10billionapps.com for an unofficial countdown to the likely moment that the 10 billionth app will be downloaded from Apple's App Store. The site is maintained in part by Top Drawer Apps, and features a "guesstimate" as to when the 10 billionth app will be downloaded, based on current sales rates, among other things.
It's a bit of fun that just might help you win that bulging, US$10,000 iTunes gift card meant for the lucky soul who downloads app number 10,000. As of this writing, you've got (approximately) just over three days.
Good luck and if you win, don't spend it all in one place. Oh, wait....
