Just one day after Google provided figures regarding its succesfull Google play app store, Apple today rushed to announce that its customers have downloaded over 50 billion apps from its own App Store.
The 50 billionth app was 'Say the Same Thing' by Space Inch, LLC, which was downloaded by Brandon Ashmore from Mentor, Ohio who received a $10,000 App Store Gift Card to commemorate this milestone.
The App Store opened in July 2008 with 500 apps. The App Store today offers more than 850,000 apps to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in 155 countries around the world, with more than 350,000 native iPad apps available.
Google announced Wednesday at its I/O conference that the tally for the Google Play store now stands at 48 billion app installations.
