As a mobile platform Windows Phone sits in third place. It’s a distant third however when you compare it to both iOS and Android. Depending on who you ask, we’re at somewhere like 4% marketshare globally. That’s still pretty small, but also presents a huge return for developers who make killer apps. Like the guys at DevRain Solutions who have just reached a killer milestone in the Windows Phone Store – 6 million downloads.
First off, congratulations to DevRain Solutions. Hitting a million downloads is a milestone in and of itself, but they were able to do that over six times.
Their killer app? Lomogram. It was just last January that they passed 1 million downloads and a year later, they've had a big jump.
Lomogram is a great photo editing app with 47 filters, 49 borders, and 72 lightening effects. You also have fine tune controls over things like exposure, contract, brightness, cropping, rotating, flipping and tilt-shift. It’s a great app that can natively share to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and VK. The app is also available on both Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8. While a lot of developers are starting to focus more and more on Windows Phone 8, there are still millions of Windows Phone 7.x users out there who want great apps. DevRain Solutions catered to both user bases.
A blog post on their site shares some other interesting statistics about their success in the Windows Phone Store. For example, Lomogram itself has over 4.5 million downloads in the Windows Phone Store. After the launch of both 6tag and Instagram downloads didn’t slow down for Lomogram. Instead, they saw a 5% in daily sessions and downloads after those apps launched. While both 6tag and Instagram offer solid editing solutions in app, standalone editing apps like Lomogram still have a place.
Lomogram is definitely the workhouse of DevRain Solutions, but they also have games (Undead Carnage: Redemption) that see solid downloads and reviews. If you’re a developer and interested in other statistics from DevRain Solutions be sure to hit up their blog post.
Want to try Lomogram? It’s free for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. Grab it from the Windows Phone Store or use the QR code below.

Got $200? If so, you can afford one of these excellent displays.
Getting a great PC monitor doesn't mean you have to spend megabucks. There are naturally some compromises, and you won't get 4K in that price range. But that's not always a bad thing. These are the best options for less than $200.
Surface Duo is better at multitasking than Galaxy Z Fold 2. Here's why.
The $2,000 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and $1,400 Microsoft Surface Duo are garnering many headlines because of pricing, and they both "fold" in some manner. But these devices are radically different, a point demonstrated with great effectiveness by @iAm_erica in this new video.
