App Store: 10 billionth download is imminent

Apple counts down to milestone with real-time ticker

Whoever makes that big download will win a $10,000 iTunes voucher

Apple’s succeeded in smashing a few big App milestones in its time and now it’s on target for another one within the next 24 hours. The company has put a real-time ticker on its site to countdown to what will be the App Store’s 10 billionth download.

It’s a mighty number that truly shows the store’s meteoric rise and success since its opening in 2008. To celebrate, Apple says it’ll gift the 10-billionth downloader an iTunes Voucher worth $10,000 (£6293).

At the rate the ticker is going, it seems as though Apple will hit that magic number at some point today (17th Jan). What would you spend all that iTunes credit on? Have a look at the T3 App Chart’s iPhone favourites and let us know on Twitter.
