Apple: Almost 1 Billion iPhone Apps Served, and counting…

iphone-app-store-contestIf you had any doubts about the iPhone AppStore’s furious success over the past year, you should know that Apple is well on its way to its 1 billionth iPhone application download. Apple is making a big deal, as it should, about its 1 billion iPhone app downloads. In fact, Apple will be celebrating its 1 billionth app download by giving the lucky downloader a prize pack that includes a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, an iPod touch, a Time Capsule and a MacBook Pro!

The iPhone maker has posted a downloads-counter that has only picked up speed since Apple announced its promotion.
