Instagram For Android Hits 5 Million Downloads Mark [Tops]
A Day before Facebook has acquired Instagram photo sharing service in a deal which was worth $1 billion, Instagram has over 30 million users on Apple’s iOS platform and the company also launched a free social app for Google Android platform last week.
When the Instagram app finally landed and made available for Android, it was understandably popular with 1 million downloads in its first day and today Instagram has hit another milestone as the Android app has now tops 5 million downloads in six days.
Means the app’s popularity has yet to wane. The 5 million downloads in six days makes Instagram one of the most popular Android app launches of all time. For comparison, it took the iOS Instagram app about six months to reach the 5 million download mark.
It’s no surprise that the Android version of the application was so popular, when Instagram started pre-registration for the application on March 24, it landed 430,000 pre-registrations before the launch. Instagram reportedly saw as many as 2000 sign-ups per minute. The apps page on Google Play shows that the app has been downloaded between five and 10 million times.
