Apple is counting down to 50 billion app downloads in the App Store, and the ticker is currently front and center on the company’s website. Some taglines rotate under the countdown, like “With 50 billion bricks, you could build 12 Great Walls of China.” Each tagline is associated with an iPad app Apple is highlighting.

The countdown is identical to when the iTunes Store hit 25 billion song downloads back in February. This time around, the lucky person to download the 50 billionth app will receive a $10,000 iTunes Store gift card from Apple. The next 50 app downloaders will each receive $500 gift cards.
