MyJio, an app from Reliance Jio was the top draw on Google and Apple stores in India during the previous week.
Almost 6 Reliance Jio apps raced up the popularity charts a day after Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani offered them for free for more than a year.
“Jio app subscriptions worth Rs 15,000 annually would be free for customers till end of 2017, alongside free voice calls for life”, Ambani had said.
Reliance Jio launched its 4G data based service commercially yesterday.
With these apps, Jio can become the largest over-the-top player in India and it has the potential to make inroads into the elite league of Indian app developers with the largest number of users, Cyber Media Research said in a note. Jio will be there along with Hike and Flipkart, which each have about 100 million users, the research firm said.
Jio, through its bouquet of apps and disruptive pricing, has addressed use cases and affordability, Faisal Kawoosa, Principal Analyst Telecoms at CMR, said in a statement.
It also provides a messaging app and a cloud storage service through JioDrive.
