The Final Milestone?

From humble beginnings in a post on this blog in May the Battery Widget for Android has become a little more popular. The post from May shows it had 3061 installs and today I'm really rather chuffed to say it has just broken 250,000!!! In Android speak that's 'the final milestone'. The Android Market now lists Battery Widget as having '>250k' installs! Yay.

The install brackets are:
50 - 100
100 - 500
500 - 1,000
1,000 - 5,000
5,000 - 10,000
10,000 - 50,000
50,000 - 250,000

You can get through the first 4 bands pretty quickly, but the last one has taken a while. Battery Widget is now high up in the Productivity Category and is receiving around 1,000 - 2,000 installs a day. Also with just under a 60% retention rate, it is still installed on around 150k devices.

The question that remains though, is whether or not 250k is actually the final milestone. Or is there a some secret next level, like >1,000,000 installs, accompanied by a letter from Andy Rubin maybe?

Great work Dude! Most impressive!

How does that map against the Mippin apps?

The Mippin apps are more modest numbers, all between 10,000 and 50,000 installs. I think Gaming Buzz has the most at around 40,000.
