Apple just keep breaking records, and over the weekend they announced over 25 billion application downloads from their store.
Apple told their customers, via a banner on their site “A billion thanks. 25 times over. The App Store has reached 25 billion downloads. Thanks for getting us there.”
Apple have been running a 25 Billion Apps Countdown Promotion since February 13th and the winner of the contest would be listed online about 10 days after the end of the promotion period. The person who downloaded the 25 billionth application wins the grand prize of a $10,000 gift certificate.
Apple announced in July that they had just passed the 15 billion app mark which was followed up by Google in December who said that their Android market had just served 10 billion applications to the public.
Kitguru says: Apple should see another surge in downloads when they release the new iPad 3, especially as people want to see applications coded specifically for the new panel.
