While you’re out trying to catch them all, Pokemon Go is breaking records left and right.
The instantly popular app now has been downloaded 75 million times, according to Sensor Tower, a mobile app analytics group. That’s on top of some already impressive numbers.
Pokemon Go hit its first 50 million in just 19 days, far surpassing the pace of other mega hit games from the last two years. Color Switch, for instance, took 77 days, and Candy Crush Jelly Saga took 112. The hot new app made it to the top of the App Store’s downloads and revenue rankings in every country where it’s available. Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, achieved this fame without being featured on the App Store or Google Play and with little of its own advertising, according to Sensor Tower.
The app now holds the record for the most mobile game downloads in the first month after launch, even though it’s in only 32 out of the 100 countries that host the App Store and Google Play, Sensor Tower said.
Niantic did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
