Back in March Apple made a surprise announcement when they revealed that they had a new app called “Clips”. Given that Apple doesn’t release new apps all that often or apps of this nature, like we said, we were surprised. The app was then made available for download last week and as it turns out, it has proven to be a hit.
According to a report from TechCrunch, they quote numbers provided by App Annie in which it was revealed that Clips was actually downloaded a million times during its first four days of availability. It also managed to reach number 28 on the App Store at its peak, which many are saying isn’t that impressive given how much coverage and promotion Apple is giving to the app.
It also seems that excitement surrounding the app quickly faded because after peaking at number 28, it slipped to the 39th position on Saturday, before dropping to 40 on Sunday. As it stands it is sitting at number 69 on the Top Charts for free apps, although this still did considerably better than Apple’s previous efforts which was Music Memos. However 1 million downloads is still pretty impressive, especially when you consider that it is more or less an iOS exclusive.
