As Apple announced a prize of a $10,000 value would be given to whoever downloaded the 50,000,000,000 (50 billionth) application on its App Store, the happy downloader is now know.
Brandon Ashmore, an American citizen from Ohio, just received a gift card of over 5,000,000 FCFA.
“Apple would like to thank our incredible customers and developers for topping 50 billion apps downloaded,” said Eddy CUE senior Vice-President of Apple’s internet and software services.
“The App Store completely transformed how people use their mobile devices and created a thriving app ecosystem that has paid out over nine billion dollars to developers. We’re absolutely floored to cross this milestone in less than five years.”
