Brandon Ashmore from Mentor, Ohio, got more than he bargained for on Wednesday, when he downloaded Say the Same Thing by Space Inch, a free app from Apple’s App Store. That download was the App Store’s 50 billionth. And these are unique downloads and do not include updates or re-downloads.

At the time of writing there have been over 49.58 billion downloads from the Apple App Store and a new milestone of 50 billion downloads is just around the corner.
