It is the person who downloads the billionth app FYI. It was discussed over at macrumors when it first released. This is the official wording from the terms.
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.

Apple - iTunes - 1 Billion App Countdown - Rules
where you think it says that the Billionth App Downloader/Entry gets the prize
Edit: And if you browse the topic on [ame="http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=683902"]macrumors[/ame] you will find that the general consensus is that the competition ends with the download of the billionth app and all entries between April 10th and then are entered into a draw, but there are a few posts from people who don't seem to understand english. The billionth entry wins nothing (unless they win the draw)

we should thank apple for a billion headaches.
1% of all apps are useful. Out of that 1% of apps 100% of it had major problems and needed to be updated at least 5 times.
Now imagine, 12mill of iPhones in market. Trying crap, updating the useful apps over and over again. 1billion downloads is reached within a year.lol makes a lot of sense to me.

Timing. The Promotion shall run from 12:01 a.m. EDT on April 10, 2009 and ends with the downloading of the 1 billionth app (“Promotion Period”). For purposes of the Promotion, the downloading of the 1 billionth app is considered to be either the downloading of the 1 billionth app from iTunes or the receipt of the non-purchase entry after the download of the 999,999,999th app, whichever comes first. Only entries submitted in this time period will be accepted. Sponsor’s computer is the official time keeping device for this promotion.
Limit: Regardless of which method of entry is used to enter the Promotion, only twenty-five (25) entries per person and/or iTunes account and/or email address, per day will be granted. The use of any automated launching or entry software or any other means that permits the entrant to automatically enter repeatedly or in excess of the entry limitations is prohibited. Only entries received during the Promotion Period will be accepted. The authorized iTunes account holder will be deemed to be the entrant for entries via app download. The authorized account holder of the email address used on the online form to enter will be deemed to be the entrant for entries via the online entry form. The “authorized account holder” is deemed the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, service provider or other online organization that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. The potential winner may be required to show proof that they are the authorized account holder or the entrant.
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.
Prizes. One (1) winner will receive one (1) 17” MacBook Pro; one (1) iPod Touch 32GB; one (1) US$10,000 iTunes Gift Certificate; and an Apple Time Capsule. Total US Retail Value of all prizes is US$13,746

The rules for this contest are pretty vague
04-23-2009, 02:10 AM #31
The rules are not vague, you are just dense. ONE person wins EVERYTHING! There is no 2nd place! The person who either DOWNLOADS OR SUBMITS the 1 billionth app/entry WINS! If more than 1 person clicked at the same time, then those ppl are put in a pot and 1 winner is drawn. Period. You can argue all you want but that is how it is. Deal with it and goodluck winning this HUGE prize!!!

Hey is it me or did they remove the countdown link?
as in not visible...

The rules are very vague. No one is disputing the fact that there will only be one winner, just if the winner is the billionth downloader or drawn from all entries.
If it is the billionth downloader what if it is their 26th app of the day?
To say the rules are not vague is plainly not the case and to call someone dense because they think the rules are vague obviously means you are of a far higher intellect than most of us...He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
