Update: some kid in the US won it. Well done, that child.
Apple are about to shift their 1 billionth app. The customer who hits the lucky 1,000,000,000 get all kinds of prizes, including a MacBook Pro and $10,000 of iTunes store credit. We at Applick think we are a shoo-in to win it!
Right now looks like about 59,000,000 downloads to go till they hit the magic number …at 100 downloads per second…carry the three… denominator…. = sometime Saturday afternoon GMT?
