Kik’s release on Windows Phone 7 was an exciting time for users. It marked the first reliable messaging service to be available for the platform. It also caused something very unexpected to happen. It caused an increase in Kik registrations from iOS and Android.
The chart above clearly demonstrates howÂ the increase in users on the iOS and Android platforms coincides with the release of Kik for Windows Phone 7. It is plainly obvious that while Windows Phone isn’t the most dominate OS at the moment its’ users are certainly influential.
Kik Interactive CEO, Ted Livingston, concludes:
“Windows Phone users may be a small segment of the whole, but they bring with them all their friends on other mobile platforms, creating a huge andunanticipated spike in Kik activity.
Itâ€™s time for cross-platform apps to start paying attention to Windows Phone 7.”
Obviously this bodes well for Windows Phone. Things like this cause companies to take notice.
