Apple says more than 25 billion apps have now been downloaded from its App Store. The 25 billionth app was downloaded from China by Chunli Fu, who will receive a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card as a reward.
Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, said “We’d like to thank our customers and developers for helping us achieve this historic milestone of 25 billion apps downloaded. 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.”
The Apple App Store offers more than 550,000 apps to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in 123 countries around the world.
