App Store - 25,000 iPhone apps

Apple had put up a webpage couple of weeks back to countdown the 1 billionth iPhone app downloaded from the App Store.

Apple crossed the milestone of 1 billion iPhone apps downloaded from the App Store couple of days back and has also announced the winner of the promotion they had launced to celebrate this signifcant milestone.

Apple had started the countdown couple of weeks back at around 927 million iPhone apps.

To celebrate this significant milestone, Apple was to give away
a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, an iPod touch, a Time
Capsule, and a MacBook Pro to the person who downloaded the billionth iPhone app.

Apple has just announced the lucky winner of the contest:

"The one billionth app, Bump created by Bump Technologies, was downloaded by Connor Mulcahey, age 13, of Weston, CT. As the grand prize winner of Apple’s one billion app countdown contest, Connor will receive a $10,000 iTunes gift card, an iPod touch, a Time Capsule and a MacBook Pro."

1 billion iPhone apps downloaded in just nine months is very impressive
when you consider that it took Apple around 2 years to sell 1 billion
songs on iTunes.
