Computer Weekly, one of my favourite reads, has as exceeded even their own excellent forecasting abilities.
In their article Tesco Finder app reaches 1m downloads published yesterday, they reinterpreted my blog entry of Friday which spoke of the number of Tesco Finder requests reaching one million, rather than app downloads reaching one million.
Given that Tesco Groceries for iPhone is about to launch, I thought I’d compile the actual total count of downloads of all the other mobile apps we have out there on iPhone, Blackbery and Nokia stores.
We have six currently which are (in order of launch) Tesco Finder for iPhone/iPod Touch, Tesco Wine Finder for iPhone, Tesco Clubcard for iPhone/iPod Touch, Blackberry Clubcard, Nokia Clubcard, and Nokia Groceries.
Colleagues are used to my generally happy demeanour but even they weren’t quite ready for the“OHHHH…YEESSSSS!!!!!” and waving of hands that came from somewhere within me.
You see, appearing on the screen was a number. It said:
One million downloads. One million Tesco apps in the hands of our customers. And that’s before Tesco Groceries for iPhone has launched.
(and thanks for the heads-up, CW!)
