Samsung's App Store Hits Two Million Downloads  Print E-mail

Just over a month ago, Samsung announced a tremendous accomplishment - their app store had logged one million downloads.  The number is impressive of course, but not unexpected.   The announcement today is both.

The company must be doing something right with its connected TVs, because the download count for the Samsung app store has reached two million.  That's in the course of under two months.

Holiday TV sales surely account for much of the jump, but what's even more surprising than the amount of downloads is the selection.  If you want an iPhone app, you have 360,000 to choose from.  Samsung has just 380 apps available for download, 259 of which are free.

"This achievement and the short period in which it was achieved demonstrate the rapidly growing popularity of applications and content for Smart TVs," says Samsung VP Sangchul Lee.  "Samsung's leadership role in this category has paid off and allowed us to provide new experiences for consumers that are more rich and integrated than any before."
