Apps, this is the word which keeps the wheel of iOS devices rolling. iOS devices are famous for their simplicity, beauty and last but not the least Apps. Apple’s App store has more than 590,000 apps which makes it the largest mobile App Store in the world. Millions of iOS device users download thousands of these amazing apps every passing hour and day. Apple’s iTunes App Store recently crossed another milestone–25 billion app downloads– and that too in just 5 years. The fruit company held a 25 billionth app download promotion/competition earlier this month which was won by a Chinese girl Ms. Fu Chunli.
It is surprising to note that Ms. Chunli is not an iFan or regular Apple products user. She bought her iPhone barely a month before she won an iTunes Gift Card worth $10,000. Folks over MIC Gadget had a lot more to share about this lucky Apple customer.
Fu Chunli was not a big fan of Apple, and had only purchased her iPhone for about one month, still learning how to use the App Store. She didn’t know anything about the competition until she was contacted by Apple. When she received a call from staff at Apple (China), she thought it was a hoax. She was still confused when a friend told her that she received a prize from Apple, but did not believe her luck until she saw an email from Apple Inc.
With so much scams swirling in market it’s really hard to judge something and specially something which worth $10,000. Apple didn’t just threw away the prize, they actually invited Ms. Chunli to Apple’s Beijing headquarters for an award ceremony where she also visited Sanlitun Apple Retail Store. In case you’re wondering, Ms. Chunli downloaded “Where’s My Water: Free Version” app which was 25th billionth app downloaded from the App Store.
Promotions like this always create a sensation in market and Apple does it often. The company did something similar when they reached milestone of 10 billionth App download and I’m convinced that we will see such promotions again from Apple.
