If you had visited Apple’s homepage in last two weeks then you may have seen the counter for the App Store downloads. It was approaching to 25 billion downloads mark.

Yesterday, March 3rd 2012, the counter finally crossed the 25 billion mark. It has been a new milestone for the company. Apple will definitely celebrate this achievement but Apple will not be the only one to celebrate this occasion. Because as part of their traditional contest, which is held every time such a milestone is about to be crossed, the person who downloaded the 25 billionth app will be getting store credit worth $10,000 to spend on any of Apple’s online stores. That’s a lot of money to spend only on the store, which means whoever won this prize will probably never have to shell out a single dime from his or her pocket to purchase anything from Apple’s store ever again.

Apple hasn’t announced the winner of this contest yet but it will be displayed shortly on Apple’s website. Apple’s representative will contact the winner as soon as the winner is announced.
