Last Saturday, Oct 6 2012, to be exact, Video Converter Android has reached 1,000,000 downloads milestone.
The app is first released on Dec 17 2011. It takes less than 10 months to reach the 1 million downloads, much faster than I expected. 🙂
I checked my blog, below is a list of milestones in terms of downloads.
- Jan 21 2012: 50, 000 downloads
- Feb 20, 2012: 100, 000 downloads
- Jul 26 2012: 500, 000 downloads
- Oct 6 2012: 1,000,000 downloads
The daily download count is now stable at around 8000.
Enough good news. The bad news about the stats is the active users are only around 20%. That means the app cannot keep the users for long. I personally think there’s a few reasons listed as below.
- video conversion is generally slow. I cannot do much about this. Hopefully when mobile devices get more powerful, this will change.
- Not many times people need to convert videos. Lots of people may download the app, convert it and then uninstall the app.
- The app size is big, especially the codec (~10MB). People will uninstall the app for more space.
- The app doesn’t work for some videos on some devices. I am trying to support more devices and videos, but it is hard.
Anyway, I will continue to refine the app. If you have any ideas of how to make the app better, please leave a comment below.
