The App Store is about to hit 1 billion application downloads. They’ve started a promotion where you could win a $10,000 iTunes gift card and many more Apple prizes – And all you have to do is download an application!

The text on the Apple site says:

“As of today, nearly one billion apps have been downloaded around the globe. So we just want to say thanks — a billion. Download an app and you’ll automatically get the chance to win a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, an iPod touch, a Time Capsule, and a MacBook Pro. Just go to the iTunes Store, browse the App Store, and download your best app yet.”

However – The chances of actually winning are extraordinary. The rules state you are only entered into the contest a maximum of 25 times a day – Which limits your odds, putting them at around 1:40,000,000 (when you bear in mind how many people download apps and own iTunes…)

Full rules for the contest are available here.
Enter the contest with this link.
Oh… and you can also enter “without purchase” with a form, although free applications count in the draw!

Good luck! (You’re gonna need it.)
