    Default Downloader of the 50 Billionth App Store Application Announced


    Just Wednesday, Apple’s App Store hit a milestone of 50 billion application downloads. This didn’t include applications that were re-downloaded more than once. The person that downloaded the 50 billionth application was to win a $10,000 iTunes gift card, and 50 more lucky winners would win $500 iTunes gift cards.

    Apple has Thursday morning announced the winner of the promotional event. Brandon Ashmore from Mentor, Ohio downloaded Say the Same Thing by Space Inch, LLC at just the right time.

    Apple has not yet announced the names of the 50 winners of the $500 iTunes gift cards; it’s not known if Apple will release another press release to shed light on that mystery, or if they will simply send out the minor prizes without announcing anything.

    Congratulations Brandon!

    That's what I'd do. I would never download $10,000 worth of iTunes content unless actively tried.

    That's the point. It's basically a lifetime supply of iTunes! But a big wad of cash would also be nice

    You can purchase mac products with an iTunes gift card? Well that changes everything then. I retract my previous comment if this is the case.

    U can't buy physical products with iTunes gift card. Only digital content like apps, music, ebooks.

    Can anyone tell me if the app in the picture is real? If so, I want to try it.

    [edit]
    It is. It's called "Paper."

    Not trying to argue with you. Just stating fact.

    You might be confusing an iTunes gift card with an "Apple Store Gift Card" which has a four digit pin. You can buy physical products like a Mac with that but not with an "iTunes Gift Card".
