The company had started a "50 Billion App Countdown" promotion two weeks ago, and the winner of the promotion (the 50 billionth download) will get a $10,000 gift card valid at the App Store, Mac App Store, or towards any iTunes Store content.
The fifty downloaders after the 50th billionth will each receive $500 gift cards, as well.
Apple is now seeing 50 million downloads per day, and the number continues to grow. There are just over 850,000 apps in the store.
The company saw 40 billion downloads earlier this year, 30 billion in June of 2012, and 10 million in December 2010.
