Users have already downloaded over 100,000 iPad apps and counting from social gaming company Jirbo, Inc. since the launch of the revolutionary device over the weekend. These iPad specific titles include top hits like Doons, Paper Football, Break, Slider, Jirbo Says and Marble Mash, piling up downloads on both the paid and free sides of the iPad section of the App Store.
“Thanks in large part to our AdColony in-app video ad technology, which we will be opening up to developers this month, we’ve been able to drive tremendous downloads of our applications, which users clearly love,” said Jonathan Zweig, CEO of Jirbo, Inc. “We believe iPad is the social gaming pass-around platform of our generation and our titles are tailored to that notion.”
Averaging over one million iPhone/iPod touch app downloads per month, Jirbo’s daily iPad downloads are already equal to their daily iPhone downloads, which speaks volumes about the iPad platform’s meteoric rise and market penetration.
“iPad will revolutionize portable computing much like iPhone and iPod touch did for mobile devices,” said Nikao Yang, EVP of Business Development at Jirbo, Inc. “We’re excited to have launched over 20 iPad titles on this platform whose sleek form factor and features like multi-touch open up a new realm of app possibilities for developers.”
