Chrome, Most Popular Free App on Apple Appstore

So, what’s the most popular free app on iTunes store now? That’s our friend Google Chrome. There are many criticism about the performance of Chrome on iOS, but there are many other compelling reasons making people jump in and explore this new piece of app.

Chrome is now the most popular free app on both iPhone and iPad sections. So, phone users and tablet users both have embraced Chrome, or Gone Google.

Good Reviews Too!

A recent stats shows 3,574 ratings out of which 2,855 with full five stars! That’s pretty good!

Who should be most worried? I think it is Opera. They have a lot of fan following in the Appstore and a very significant percentage of Opera users are Opera Mini (mobile version) users.

One limitation for Chrome on iOS is that you can’t make it the default browser on iPhone or iPad. I found a solution online just now. So stay tuned for a post soon here telling you how to do this. I don’t have an iOS device to try this out. If there is anyone around who can volunteer for some testing, please drop me a comment! (this works only on jailbroken iOS devices)

Did you download Chrome for iPhone and iPad? How was your experience?

Dinsan made Google Chrome his default browser within hours of its release. He fell in love with Chromebooks from the day he first touched one and is currently obsessed with Chromecasts.
