On Wednesday, May 15, 2013, a huge Apple milestone was reached. The 50 billionth app was downloaded from the Apple App Store.
Over the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed the countdown tracker on the Apple homepage showing the tally of how many apps were being downloaded from the Apple App store. The person to download the 50 billionth app received a $10,000 App Store gift card.
The App Store has quickly gained in popularity since its launch in 2008. It has surpassed the Google Play store, which has received around 48 billion downloads. In just a short span of 14 months, App Store downloads doubled from 25 billion to 50 billion. It is now projected to be on track to receive more than 20 billion downloads per year.
To say the least, we sure love our apps!
