Apple Sells 1,000,000,000th App Store Download

Apple sold its one-billionth App store download on Friday, April 24, 2009. That's extremely impressive considering the app store has only been open for nine months.

The one billionth app was Bump, created by Bump Technologies, and was downloaded by Connor Mulcahey, age 13, of Weston, CT. Connor was the grand prize winner of Apple’s one billion app countdown contest and will receive a $10,000 iTunes gift card, an iPod touch, a Time Capsule and a MacBook Pro. Not bad considering the app was a free download.
