Today is a momentous day, as Apple is counting down to the 25 billionth app downloaded from the App Store. Take a moment to wrap your head around this, that’s roughly 3.5 apps for every single person on the planet Earth. You can check out Apple’s countdown clock and watch it tick towards the magic number: how else are you going to spend a Friday afternoon? Working? Pah, that’s for chumps.

Also, Apple is goosing things along by promising that whoever nabs the 25 billionth app will win a $10,000 App Store gift card. While that won’t buy you every single app ever released it will go a very long way to ensuring you have the most robust collection of games, tools and utilities this side of Cupertino. You better act fast though, because that ticker is moving awfully quick and we fully expect the winning app to be downloaded within the next few hours.

So let us just say congrats to Apple on this momentous occasion. Now if only they would give us a dollar for every app downloaded.
