Apple has posted details about a new contest to celebrate the upcoming 25 billionth download from the iOS App Store, offering a $10,000 iTunes gift card as the grand prize. The contest launched late last week and will conclude when the 25 billionth app is downloaded.
This is not the first time Apple has run a contest like this. Apple held a similar contest last summer to note the 10 billionth app download, also offering a $10,000 iTunes gift card as the grand prize at that time. Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent in England was the winner of that contest.
As before, entering the contest is dead simple – all you need to do is download apps (or submit an alternate entry) and keep your fingers crossed. You can find the official rules here and you can find some great ideas about which apps to get in our official 2011 AppShopper App Picks or our Top 200 lists. Good luck!
