Apple throws a contest as it nears 1 Billion apps downloaded

Category: Software
Posted: 08:43AM

Apple launched the App Store on July 10, 2008. Since then, nearly one billion apps (928,560,859 and counting) have been downloaded for the iPhone and iPod Touch. As a way to calibrate and say thanks to everyone who has made the store a success, Apple is having a celebration/contest. Starting today, any app you download will earn you a chance to win a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, an iPod touch, a Time Capsule, and a MacBook Pro.

Don't have an iPhone or iPod Touch? Not a problem, you can enter the contest by downloading apps via iTunes or through a free entry form. You may enter up to 25 times per day per person/iTunes account up until the tickers hits a billion. Some additional rules and restrictions apply, so make sure you check out the contest page for all the additional details.

Interesting that is says 25 entries per day, yet it won't even let me do 2... I just tried the Alternative Entry Form and it states, "Limited to 25 entries per day". I entered once and went to try again when it said, "You have entered to many times today" So apparently Apple can't count (1 doesn't equal 25) and doesn't know basic grammar (they used to instead of too).
