Hooked recommendation app hits 1 million downloads per week

10 MAY 2012

Game recommendation app Hooked has been downloaded more than one million times in the space of a week, according to its maker Hooked Media.

The app, which recommends games found in Google Play to Android users, has driven five million game installs and one million hours of gameplay over a seven day period.

The app bases recommendations on users’ previous game downloads and how they interact with the games they already have on their devices.

The app has received more than 22 million game recommendations from users and sent more than nine million recommendations to Google Play. The app has achieved a total of 11 million downloads to date.

"With so many gaming applications on the market, a person can spend hours searching for one that interests them, and even then, still not be satisfied," said Prita Uppal, CEO of Hooked Media Group.
