Thread: App Store reaches 1,000,000,000

The App Store is about to reach one billion (1,000,000,000!) app downloads, and Apple is making this sweet, by awarding the billionth app downloader with a 17" MacBook Pro, a 32GB iPod touch, a $10,000 (yes, $10,000!) iTunes gift card, and Time Capsule.
All these items are worth over $13,000 put together! So your one app download of a few dollars, or even free of cost, can win you Apple products worth over $13,000.

wow That's awesome! I guess our chances of winning are one in a billion, but still a chance
04-10-2009, 11:26 PM #3
Yeah, it really is. Our actual chances of winning are 1:40,000,000 because you can enter 25 times a day. I think they'll reach 1,000,000,000 by one or two weeks, maybe.

That's a big number.....

Wow, that's a lot. Hope to see it continue like this. I'm liking my iPhone more and more each month. (3.0 now)

So wait, they're going to draw a random name once the One Billionth app is downloaded or they're going to give the macbook to the 1 billionth downloader? o.O

They're going to give the prize to the billionth downloader. Very small chance of winning, but it really is worth a try!

What's a Time Capsule?

Wrong actually. The contest is a random drawing. The contest ends after the 1 billionth download. The 1 billionth downloader gets nothing.

My apologies for any misunderstandings.
I'm guessing everyone is going to download 25 per day, as that is the closest anyone can get to winning.

i think i have better odds spontaneously combusting
than to be the one to actually win an almost world wide contest.

does it have to be a paid app? or just any app? can it be a free one?
04-11-2009, 01:32 AM #17
It can be any app, so yes if you download a free app from iTunes or the AppStore then you go in the running
It would be awesome to win!

For a split second I thought that it was an MMi competition. Then I'd have to make another account and enter it just to blow you all away

To be clear, this doesnt seem like a drawing, its the 1 billionth entry that wins, but as stated before 25 entries a day is as close as you can get, but what would you do with all those apps when you've lost?
Here is the main rule:
Sweepstakes. Sponsor is the sole judging organization whose decisions as to the operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. 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. In the event that more than one entrant would be a winner based on the simultaneous timing of entries, one entrant will be randomly selected from those entrants as the winner. Each entrant’s chances of winning are dependent upon the number of eligible entries received.
