Just like that, Google Chrome browser for iOS became the number 1 free app in less than one day after it was released. Unlike its Android version, Chrome for iOS supports the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch running on iOS 4.3 or higher. This means that there are more users who can download the app and use it on their devices as compared to the Android version which requires Android 4.0 ICS. As you all know, Android 4.0 devices are far lesser than iOS devices which meet the browser’s OS requirements. Interestingly, the number of downloads for Chrome Browser was not affected by the fact that you can’t use it as your default mobile web browser for your iOS devices.
Is the Chrome Browser really good enough to merit that many downloads? Honestly, I’m using Chrome Browser more on my Samsung Galaxy S3 than the one installed on my iPhone 4S. I’ve tried the sync feature of the browser and true enough, the moment you turn auto-sync on, you’ll immediately get your bookmarks, saved passwords, autofill and other important stuff from Chrome on your computer sent over to your iOS device.
Now, if only Google will make the Chrome Browser available for non-ICS devices, then perhaps the Android version of the app will get the same number of downloads that its iOS counterpart is getting. So, have you downloaded Chrome Browser on your iOS device yet? How do you find it so far? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
