Apple has just announced that the 10 billionth App Store download was for Paper Glider. The app was downloaded by Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, UK. Gail will receive the $10,000 iTunes gift card. Paper Glider is a free game that lets you throw virtual paper planes.

“With more than 10 billion apps downloaded in just two and a half years—a staggering seven billion apps in the last year alone—the App Store has surpassed our wildest dreams,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “The App Store has revolutionized how software is created, distributed, discovered and sold. While others try to copy the App Store, it continues to offer developers and customers the most innovative experience on the planet.”
