    But I mean, no-one here knows whether it is the billionth download that gets the prize.

    Just to clarify.

    The competition ends when the billionth app is downloaded.

    You enter by filling out the form, or by downloading an application, which can be paid OR free.

    You get up to 25 entries a day.


    Everyone get it now?

    Either way, none of us are going to win!

    Yea, the odds are incredibly slim...

    By my calculations (who knows if that counter on the link to Apple's site is actually accurate or not) if it continues at the speed its at now, the billionth app download should happen somewhere between monnday night and tuesday morning (20th-21st) late at night.

    Keep in mind that is in whatever time zone I'm in here in ATL, GA (I am drawing a blank at the moment )

    But who knows? maybe one of us will win!

    Let me try to clear this up a little... "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." This means the one billionth app downloader will be the one to win. It doesn't say, "...for the entry randomly picked after the download of the 999,999,999th app."

    the clock is not a live download clock. i set my bios time to april 29th at 3 am and it hit a billion, if you dont believe me then try it yourself. so we will not know for sure when the billionth app is downloaded since the clock is not live, but my bets are on the 29th since thats when apple "predicts" the billionth app is downloaded.
    two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and i'm not sure about the the universe.

    It's not live, set your clock. Put mine to the 29th and it was past a billion.

    Apple would not let the person who got the billionth app to win - think about it. It's not fair - time zones, AND it would likely screw their servers like on the iPhone 3G release.

    Or, everyone could just read the rules, where it clearly says that the billionth download (or form entry) wins the prize. Read the "Sweepstakes" section: Rules
    It's exactly what they did when iTunes hit a billion, so they can do it again

    Wno't there be a server issue with so many people downloading apps at the same time? (at the point of 999,999,999)

    I want to win so I can spend the $10k card on my band's album so that we'll have $7k cash to pay off some debts.
