Apple crosses 25 billion app milestone

(Updated with identity of downloader) Apple has crossed the 25 billion milestone. A few days ago the company posted a countdown to the 25 billionth download along with a competition for the worth $10,000 to spend on iTunes. The company has not yet announced who downloaded the 25 billionth app, or the app that was downloaded to bring up the remarkable figure.

Apple has crossed the 25 billion app milestone a mere three years after it crested the 1 billion apps downloaded. It also comes slightly less than fours after Apple first started selling apps through the iTunes store, marking an incredible acceleration in downloads. The app downloads have been generated through sales to the estimated combined 300 million iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners.

Update: Apple has announced that the 25 billionth download was made by Chunli Fu, of Qingdao, China. The app in question was Where's My Water? Free. The title has regularly scored high in App Store charts.
