Apple Says 25th Billion App Download Came from Inside China
Early Monday, Apple confirmed that the 25th billion app download had occurred. Following the obligatory massive countdown clock that usually adorns the Apple website ahead of such a milestone download marker, Apple issued a statement to the press this morning offering more details about the "winning" download.
With more than 315 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices floating around worldwide at the moment, lots of apps are downloaded each day. But over the weekend, the 25 billionth app was downloaded. And what was the app, you ask? According to Apple, the winner was "Where's My Water?"
Apple says the app was was downloaded by Chunli Fu of Qingdao, China. As the winner of the App Store Countdown to 25 Billion Apps, Chunli Fu receives a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. Of course, with an ever-swelling Apple fan base in China, it comes as little surprise that the milestone app download transpired inside of the world's most populous nation.
“We’d like to thank our customers and developers for helping us achieve this historic milestone of 25 billion apps downloaded,” says Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “When we launched the App Store less than four years ago, we never imagined that mobile apps would become the phenomenon they have, or that developers would create such an incredible selection of apps for iOS users.”

Yeah Apple should be thanking the hackers who created Installer which is now Cydia. Leave it to Apple to always take credit for something they stole.

The winner is from china??? Congrats and I'm 99.9% sure the winner was chosen from china because Apple is currently an a trademark dispute and wants to be on chinas good side for the final decision of iPad™ being apples property. This was Planned since the beginning. :/

The winner was from China because it was around 1:30am on the West Coast when the 25 Billionth was downloaded. Which would have been funny if the App that won was the DUI check Point App (I know it was removed) downloaded from someone on the West Coast!

I wouldn't be surprised if China hired 2,000 of its citizens to sit in a (large) room and constantly buy apps for 24 hours when the contest end drew near.
Either that... or it's simply luck. The point is I don't trust China.

I know this isn't where this was supposed to posted but I've been searching and can't find the appropriate forum. So please don't be to upset. I've heard that there is a forum where you can recommend interesting online articles to the staff. I've never done this before but I found a cool kick starter page that they might be interested in. Thanks for the help.

if your like 90 % of the other jailbreakers out there that know nothing about what they are doing and download 100 different tweaks until they finally get constant reboots and blame it all on the fact that jailbreaking in the first place is what made there device unstable.

Everything else; multitasking, notification center, copy paste, home screen wallpaper... Name anything. We had it first in one way or another.
