Happy Birthday Trade Me iOS app

Today marks the fifth anniversary of Trade Me’s iPhone app. It’s come a long way since the first edition we released in 2010. Check out the Site Announcement we did back then.

Since release, it’s been downloaded more than 1.5 million times with more than 375,000 users logging in each month.

Not to blow our own trumpet too much but we reckon it just might be the most downloaded New Zealand iPhone app. Naturally, there are a few apps from around the world that have probably been downloaded by Kiwis more than Trade Me but as far as homegrown apps go, we think we might be the highest.

To continue the shameless self-promotion, we think the situation is the same for our Android app, which ticked up to 1 million downloads on 13 November.

Thanks for helping us make Trade Me Mobile such a success, New Zealand. If you have feedback, issues or just need to get in touch with the Trade Me Mobile team give them a shout on Twitter.
