I just watched the app store click over 25 billion.
I gave it a go by purchasing an App as the $10000 voucher would be awesome.
Will be interesting to see which country has the luck recipient.

Can you just imagine how many people were purchasing Apps at the exact second the 25 billion was reached. Apple must scrutinize the Apps that were purchased to the 0.000000000000000001 of a second to find the winner...:-)

Well, I downloaded a free app last night, so really it should be me.

$10,000 would buy an awful lot of apps/music/videos! Anyone know what the most expensive iTunes purchase would be?

Looks like it's The Alchemist SMS, which costs a cool $1049.99.

Cheers

I think they should have made it 10k worth of apple gear, 10k worth of apps is about as exciting as winning 10 kilos of roast beef, when you are a vegetarian
