Every few months or so RIM has announced some stats on how many downloads App World sees on average per day. Alex Kinsella, Product Manager at RIM for BlackBerry App World, mentioned on Twitter that App World is now pushing 3 million app downloads a day. That is some pretty impressive growth from RIM. Here are the stats we have learned until know with dates:
- 1 Million downloads a day – July 30th 2010 when RIM announced App World 2.0 Beta
- 1.5 Million downloads a day – Sep 27th 2010 at BlackBerry DevCon in San Francisco
- 2 Million downloads a day – Feb 14th 2011 when App World was expanded to 100 Markets
- 3 Million downloads a day – March 22nd 2011 via Alex Kinsella
Pretty impressive work for RIM. They need to keep up this consistent growth and usage of App World to compete in the mobile game. Keep up the good work guys!
