A post from the Apple’s App Store recognized the moment several minutes after. The fifty people who have downloaded apps after Ashmore are set to receive at least $500 each as gift cards. That is already a huge figure defined by Apple. Its 50 billion downloads, excluding updates and re-downloads. That number keeps Apple the sole key.
