    actually, in the terms and conditions, they say that they will choose a winner randomly, but that the contest is only open until the billionth app is downloaded. the itunes music contest was the billionth download but this is different. also, the countdown is not *actually* counting, only estimating, so don't rely on that. every download is one entry, and you get up to 25 entries a day. you can also enter with a form you fill out on their site.

    Flawed countdown?

    EDIT: Never mind, I just re-read the rules. Its 3 am lol, give me a break. Countdown is still incorrect though. I just added a webclip of it and it isnt even in sync with the one in safari... Its hard to win if the counter they base it off isn't even correct lol.

    Why? You can enter (if you're lucky) and you won't win - simple

    Ok, so wait for a second here. Who will be the winner? I posted this at like 1am last night, so maybe I'm wrong about who's winning.

    Is the billionth downloader the winner? Or are they having a random drawing from the people that have downloaded since yesterday to the billionth download?

    Does anyone care?
    The chances of wining will be so slim anything you do will have no effect.
    They will announce a winner who none of us will have heard of and I'll be very happy for them.
    Not worth worrying about.

    Meh....not gonna win so..screw the competition.
    Besides there's only a few good apps and how many crappy free apps can you download a day, wasting your time and in the end you don't win.

    Why don't we all read the rules so we can all be clear on how the winner is chosen:
    Apple - iTunes - 1 Billion App Countdown - Rules

    It is a bit confusing, though. It says the winner here:
    The prize will be awarded for the entry (either through an app download or through the non-purchase online entry) sent immediately following the download of the 999,999,999th app. The potential winner will be determined by the order of the entries received.
    But here it says the winners?
    The winners will be listed online at Apple - iTunes - 1 Billion App Countdown within approximately ten (10) days following the End Date.
    I guess they're just keeping their options open
