Apple has updated its website with an app counter which is about to surpass the 10 billionth application download via its mobile App Store.

Apple wants to reward its users so it will be offering a prize to the person who downloads the 10 billionth app, a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card that can obviously be used on Apple’s App Store but also to buy Macbooks, iPads, iPhones and iPods.

If you don’t fancy downloading an app, you can enter without purchasing or downloading, head over to this link. You need to be over 13 years of age and you need to be a “legal resident of a participating App Store country” to qualify.

Good luck!
