Just two short months after we announced the 1 million download mark for the Hotmail app for Android that SEVEN Networks developed for Microsoft, that number has now tripled and continues to grow. In fact, as of December 30, 2011 the app had reached 3.2 Million installs. And with the app now available for Kindle Fire users, we could reach the 4 Million mark before January is over! That’s right, Kindle Fire users can now download the app on the Amazon Appstore.
In general, users continue to be pleased with the app, giving it a 4.1 on the Android Market. Recent user feedback from Andrew said “Brilliant. Sets everything up for you. E-mails come through immediately not days later. Multiple accounts permitted and the layout is easy to use.” And another user said “Buried gem. I don’t know how long this has been in the market, but this is an awesome app to manage hotmail! In some respects it is better than the native android email app! Thank you MS!”
With several hundred millions users of Hotmail users worldwide, this app is rapidly climbing the ranks of the favorite apps on the Android Market. Here’s an example in the French speaking market where it’s ranked #5 in the Communication category next to Skype and Facebook Messenger.
We’d love to hear how you like the app, let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for that 4 million mark shortly!
