Photobooth hits 10k downloads in its first week!
Jeez guys, that was quick. When we entered the Market last Thursday, we never figured you guys would download Photobooth over 10,000 times in just a few days. You did, though, and we wanted to send out a huge thanks to everyone that downloaded and rated the app in the Market this week.
To say thank you (and as proof that we’re listening), we’re currently prepping a build that adds a Save to SD button. The functionality has always been present (it actually happened behind the scenes when you clicked Share), but it’ll be nice to have it’s own button. We’re also updating a few of the icons to be a bit more consistent. Keep your eyes peeled for this update sometime in the next few days.
As some of you might know, we are hard at work on a set of Pro features for Photobooth, which we hope to release in the next two weeks. Along with the Pro version, we’ll be kicking off a contest with a couple of really great photography prizes, my favorite of which happens to be a handful of Flickr Pro accounts. I’ve used Flickr for years now, most of that time with a Pro account, and I’m not looking back. Flickr is my favorite way to host and share photos, so giving it away as a prize just felt right.
If you’re the nerdy type, I thought you might be interested in the following stats. As most of you know, the Android Market gives developers a few basic statistics about their apps, which I’ve posted below.
