Last week Apple announced that its iPhone and iPod Touch App Store had delivered its one-billionth application. The recipient of that application and winner of Apple's one billion app countdown contest, 13-year-old Connor Mulcahey of Weston, Conn., was announced shortly thereafter. Mulcahey will receive a MacBook Pro, a $10,000 iTunes gift card, an iPod touch and a Time Capsule backup device.
The store reached the milestone after nine months of operation. The billionth application downloaded was Bump, which allows users to exchange information from one iPhone or iPod touch to another by bumping hands while holding the devices.
