The countdown has passed the 49 billion mark and is rising fast. To celebrate, Apple is giving away a $10,000 gift card, along with several $500 cards. It also revealed the top 50 paid and free apps of all time.

Among the top free apps are mobile games Words with Friends at No. 6, Temple Run at No. 9, Angry Birds at No. 13, Draw Something at No. 14, Fruit Ninja at No. 18, and Pac-Man Lite at No. 23, according to VG247.
