Microsoft hasn"t been very forthcoming with information about how its Windows Phone devices are selling, but there is evidence that the OS is gaining in popularity. Nokia"s newly launched Lumia 900 is selling out and more and more app developers are starting to make software for Windows Phone.
One of those software makers is FourBros Studios. They released a free Windows Phone 7 game called Taptitude back in March 2011. This week, the company offered up some charts and graphs that showed how well the app is doing, in terms of both software downloads and the number of ad impressions the free game receives.
In terms of ad impressions, Taptitude has slowly but surely increased its rate over the past year but the ad impressions have started skyrocketing in the past month or so, even before the launch of the Lumia 900. So far the app has generated 100 million ad impressions. The article states, "At the time of this writing, we are about half way through April and we have record impressions per day ..."
Another chart shows the number of downloads for Taptitude. The orange line shows the cumulative number of downloads while the green line shows the number of downloads per day. Once again, the chart shows a huge spike in terms of Taptitude"s per-day downloads in the past month.
