App Store passes 25 billion downloads

Apple's App Store has hosted its 25 billionth download.

The person who downloaded the 25 billionth app will be revealed within the next ten days, and will receive $10,000 in iTunes vouchers.

It's a remarkable figure, made all the more so by the store having only crossed the ten billion mark in January last year. Then, the lucky downloader was Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, with a download of Paper Glider.
