1m downloads for eBuddy on Nokia Ovi Store

Instant messaging app eBuddy has just passed a download milestone on the Ovi Store, with over one million Nokia customers grabbing the platform since its launch.

The app has been free to download for three months and in that short time it has quickly become one of the most popular apps available on the Ovi Store. eBuddy is not exclusive to Nokia mobile phones, as its total download count is over 75 million, with downloads from many mobile software portals.

A spokesperson for eBuddy said that it has 15 million regular users each month, with seven billion messages sent every 30 days.

"As Ovi Store continues to grow, more and more publishers are seeing their apps reach a million downloads faster," said Nokia's Marco Argenti.

Although the Ovi Store is not as well-stocked as the iPhone's App Store, it has a user base which is virtually unrivalled and it could well have a more significant impact in the future.
