100,000 and Counting

Posted on 16 Sep 08 by Raanan Bar-Cohen

102,208 to be exact. That’s the number of people worldwide who have installed the WordPress for iPhone App in the month of August and the last week in July–very impressive! These numbers, supplied by Apple, do not count updates for people who upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1.

Here is a chart with the global breakdown of installs:

On the development front lots of work is going into version 1.2 which will include landscape mode, comment moderation, enhanced image options, and a host of other tweaks. If you are able to run the Apple SDK/simulator and know how to use SVN, we encourage you to test the latest trunk version and send us any feedback you may have.

We hope to have the 1.2 release ready within the next few weeks.

    A have a very teenie weenie request: I wish you guys would get rid of the gloss effect in the icon, it’s downright tool-y and annoying. That’s my minor complaint about an otherwise great iPhone app. Remove the gloss in the next version, please? It’s pretty trivial to set UIPrerenderedIcon to ‘false’, and in effect make the whole world a much better place. Thanks in advance :)

    So the UK is no longer a part of Europe? Good to know, I’ll need a new passport for my next trip then… :-)

    I’m looking forward to 1.2!

    [...] WordPress for Iphone reached more than 100,000 downloads last week, with around 60% of the downloads coming from the USA, and 20% from Europe. You need wordpress 2.5 or higher to work with the application, and I am impressed with the number of downloads. It would have been interesting to know how many downloads turn into active users. This is for me a bit of a cross between SMS, Twitter, mobile use of flickr and blogging. SMS’ing to blogs already exists, I think. In any case, emailing or SMS to a blog can technically be posted onto wordpress. We now have the ability to format, add pictures, links, and possibly recorded audio/video. Independant journalists or people with wordpress news blogs will find a great use for this plugin. Leave a Comment [...]

    I know that a lot of Americans are quite ignorant about what happens in the world but nobody told you that the UK is part of Europe and member of the EU.

  22. Raanan Bar-Cohen

    @Gunter -

    Ya, that’s actually how Apple breaks it down – I would suspect because the UK uses it’s own currency, but you would need to ask Apple directly to find out for sure.
