10 million downloads!

10 is the magic number

Milestone alert! 

Yay, we've done it. Neon Play has achieved over ten million downloads since its launch ten months ago and just three weeks after its app Paper Glider was announced as Apple’s ten billionth download. Six million of those apps have been downloaded since the New Year. Spookily, the company has also just employed its tenth member of staff. OK, sort of spooky.

10 is the magic number

“It’s weird how these things go sometimes but ten is definitely our magic number at the moment,” said Neon Play CEO Oli Christie. “I’d like to say we’ve launched ten apps to fit with the pattern but we haven’t. We are on app number 15 at the moment and have just released a Royal Wedding app, our first departure from games.”

Popular games such as Flick Football, Golf Putt Pro and the recently released Traffic Panic have propelled Neon Play to the landmark download total with the latter title also securing the firm’s fifth No. 1 spot in the UK free games chart.

10 billionth app

Last month Neon Play became the talk of the press when it was announced that Paper Glider – a huge hit on both sides of the Atlantic – was the 10 billionth app to be downloaded from the Apple App Store.

“It’s certainly been a great start to the year,” added Christie. “To know that so many people are enjoying our games is a great incentive for the team to continue working hard to create simple and fun apps in the future.”

Although we suppose we're best known for our portfolio of little addictive games and celeb apps, this month has seen us make a slight departure from our game output by launching the Royal Wedding app.

Nice day for a Royal Wedding

“The Royal Wedding is shaping up to be one of the most talked about cultural events of the year and we hope the app proves popular all around the world. It includes background information about the happy couple, the ins-and-outs of the wedding plans and exclusive photos by royal photographer Ian Jones; all in a handy app-sized guide.”

Onwards and upwards and let's see how long it takes us to hit 20 million app downloads.
