The Apple App Store is nearing its 50 billionth app. Yes, that is billionth with the letter "B." The company is offering up a $10,000 app store gift card to the person who downloads the 50 billionth app. That might just be a lifetime worth of apps.

In addition to the $10,000 gift card, Apple is also giving away a $500 gift card to the next 50 people who download an app. Sadly, there is no gift card for the person who downloads the 49,999,999,999th app.

The rules are pretty simple:

  • Entrants must be 13 years of age or older, or the minimum age required by local law, at the time of entry
  • Entrants must be residents of a participating country
  • You can enter 25 times per day; but that means you have to download 25 apps to receive the maximum number of entries
  • Free apps are included in the contest
If you’d rather not download an app or you don’t even have an Apple device, you can register online at this entry form. Again, you are limited to 25 entries per day, even if you use the online registration form.

Good luck and happy downloading!
