The 10 billionth app from Apple’s app store has been downloaded. Apple says that the 10 billionth download occurred on Saturday. Apple did not say who downloaded the app, but last week Apple promised that whoever downloaded the 10 billionth app would get a $10,000 gift certificate to iTunes.
Apple has sold millions of iPhones since its launch in 2007, and will sell millions more now that the iPhone, which has been exclusive to AT&T, is getting a second carrier with Verizon.
The app store has been live since July of 2008, and currently holds more than 300,000 paid and free apps. When the app store started, it has just 500 apps.
