Apps are increasingly popular as Apple's App Store download numbers can attest to. We recently reported about a giveaway Apple was hosting to celebrate 50 billion app downloads. We can now report that the App Store has surpassed 50 billion downloads, though Apple has yet to identify the grand prize winner.
The grand prize winner will be awarded a $10,000 iTunes voucher, while 50 runners-up will each get a $500 iTunes voucher. It would have been nearly impossible to guarantee that you would download the 50 billionth app, so it all comes down to good fortune and being an active App Store user.
