Apple boasts 50 billion app downloads

 

Not to be outdone with Google's 48 billion application downloads, Apple spilled the beans that its App Store has now reached 50 billion app downloads. Apple has just published a special page to announce the milestone. Written boldly accross the page are the words, "50 billion app downloads. One really big thank you."

Apple says that it will announce the grand prize winner soon - that will the lucky Apple user who downloaded the 50 billionth app. Kudos to Apple for the feat.

Meanwhile, Google has two billion apps downloads more to go to reach Apple's milestone. It will be interesting to see how the numbers will fly in the coming months. Even more interesting is the overall tally a year from now.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
