Whoa. 50 billion?! You people sure love Angry Birds and whatnot. Apple is counting down (or…up) to the magic 50 billion downloaded apps mark today, and there’s a $US10,000 iTunes gift card on offer for the lucky 50 billionth purchaser.
At the time of publication, the total is overing around 49.21 billion apps downloaded, but there’s a ticker on there that shows you just how fast it’s going. It’s pretty incredible viewing.
I still remember the first app I ever downloaded. First it was a lightsaber that responded to the accelerometer in my iPhone. It was the first time I had seen anything like it, and that’s when I fell in love with apps. The second app was Shazam, and that’s one of the best apps I have ever used!
What was your first app? [Apple]
