Apple says the 10 billionth application downloaded from its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch App Store was Paper Glider by Neon Play. The app was downloaded by Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, who’ll receive a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card.
The App Store has been open for two and a half years, with seven billion apps downloaded in the last year alone. It currently offers more than 350,000 apps.
Oli Christie, managing director of Neon Play, said “We've been eagerly discussing the 10 billion app countdown in our game studio, so when I got a call from Apple Cupertino saying they had some ‘good news’, I thought they might tell us they were featuring one of our apps on the App Store. So when they said that Neon Play's Paper Glider was the 10 billionth app, I was completely and utterly dumbstruck. It's a great piece of news for the whole Neon Play team. Paper Glider is currently the number one app in the UK, so this is a double piece of great news for our studio.”
