The Apple app store’s 25 billionth app, Where’s My Water, a game from from Disney, was downloaded by Chunli Fu of Qingdao, China. Mr. Fu will receive a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card from Apple for being the person to download the 25 billionth app.
Eddy Cue (Senior vice president, Internet Software and Services, Apple): When we launched the App Store less than four years ago, we never imagined that mobile apps would become the phenomenon they have, or that developers would create such an incredible selection of apps for iOS users.
The App Store currently has over 550,000 apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, with more than 170,000 native iPad apps available. The store is available in 123 countries.
