In a press release today, Apple announced that 13 year old Connor Mulcahey from Connecticut was the lucky guy who downloaded the billionth app from iTunes. He’ll be receiving a $10,000 iTunes gift card, an iPod Touch, a Time Capsule, and a MacBook Pro. Not too shabby, but 10 grand in cash might have been a bit sweeter.
Then again, do you really want to give that kind of cash to a 13 year old?
And which application was the billionth download, you ask? Well, “Bump” was the lucky app. Bump is an application which makes swapping contact information as simple as ‘bumping’ 2 iPhones together. And it’s free on iTunes. Talk about a huge payoff for Connor!
