Apple has moved its countdown to the App Store's 50 billionth app download to the main page at Apple.com. Here, an iPad mini displays a series of images, each of which are accompanied by an associated fact concerning the number 50 billion (as pictured above). For example, an outer-space image of our own planet notes that:
With 50 billion steps, you could walk around the earth more than 800 times.As a reminder, the person who downloads the 50 billionth app will be awarded a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. In addition, each one of the next 50 customers will be awarded $500 Gift Cards. Apple notes in the terms and conditions for the competition:
