New iPad Owners Explore Apps on Opening Weekend

Monday, April 5, 2010

With the much anticipated launch of the iPad this past weekend, how did users spend time on their new devices? Localytics reports that iPad usage began shortly after East Coast Apple and Best Buy stores opened at 10 am EDT.

As users played with their shiny new iPads on Saturday, many went straight to the App Store, anxious to quickly download and try apps. Apple announced today that it sold 300,000 iPads on Saturday and owners have already downloaded 1 million apps. App publishers using Localytics for iPad and iPhone analytics saw a similar burst over the weekend. Usage came from both iPad and iPhone apps, with nearly half of the apps active on the iPhone on Saturday also showing initial usage on the iPad.
