Apple has (almost) served 1 billion apps


Oh boy. Apple is about to hit 1 billion apps served via the App Store. Who would have thunk that in under a year, Apple would have hit this milestone. The count was just at 500 million a few, short months ago sometime in Janurary, but here we are staring at a ticking counter. Kind of makes you wonder how many of the downloaded apps were fart releated. With a new iPhone [probably] launching this summer, we’ll likely see 2 billion before long as the App Store is exposed to more customers.

Anyway, Apple is celebrating the achievement with a rightous giveaway of a $10,000 iTunes gift card, MacBook Pro, Time Capsule, and iPod touch. All you have to do is download any app between now and whenever the count hits a billion. Don’t have ¬†an iPod or iPhone? Click here to enter via the website free of charge.
