Orbit has been available a full week now, and has performed phenomenally in the market. It's about to cross the 50,000 users mark, and I thought it would be a good idea to share some statistics of the Cydia Store market.
Here's the device breakdown (of 45,254 devices):
It's interesting to note that the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS are almost identical in market share so far (in fact, for most of this week the 3GS was ahead by about 4%, but the 3G pulled ahead at the last minute). Remember, the 3GS is only a couple months old.
So, with that in mind, what OS is everyone running?
As you can see, the majority are on the latest version of iPhone OS, although there is a significant number remaining on 3.0.
Orbit has been received positively in the media, too, although the highlight of my week was getting the great Stephen Fry to use Orbit. From his e-mail to me, he said…
"Smooth and stable and genuinely useful. It’s there on my dock, the first app ever to deserve a place there…"
I can't wait to wrap up v1.1 and push it out to all of you - and if you like Orbit, please tell your friends! It's only $1.99 on the Cydia Store, and you get free updates.
