Instapaper seeing huge increase in downloads since the Nexus 7 launch
We heard earlier in the week about the success the guys at Shifty Jelly have had since the launch of the Nexus 7, but, it seems they're not alone. Mobelux, the developers of the Instapaper app for Android, has shared some of their own numbers. And, much like Shifty Jelly, there has been a definite increase in download numbers since the launch of the Nexus 7.
The figure, is a massive 600% increase in downloads of the app since the date of the Nexus 7 launch. There is of course every chance that the $25 free credit for the Play Store has helped their cause. But it's great to hear stories of developers increased success since the Nexus 7 came to town.
An application like Instapaper is something that would naturally suit a 7-inch tablet — it's a perfect size for reading on after all. The Nexus 7 is the first 7-inch Android tablet — not counting Amazon's Kindle Fire — to really capture consumer interest in large numbers, and so far everything is coming up roses.
