The application racked up almost half a million downloads in less than a week!

OpenAI has launched its ChatGPT application on iOS in the United States a few days ago. The app has made amazing progress in its first week of availability, and the results are obvious. Although the app is only available to iOS users in the U.S., ChatGPT has obtained nearly half a million downloads in less than a week.

According to a study conducted by, OpenAI’s ChatGPT app accumulated nearly half a million downloads in its first six days of availability (via TechCrunch). This is a massive start for a new app, making it one of the most popular apps of this year and last. ChatGPT took its time to officially arrive on the App Store. We’ve seen countless clones and other AI apps that claim to serve the same purpose to some extent. These applications have taken advantage of OpenAI’s absence and the growing demand for AI chatbots.

Despite these obstacles, ChatGPT managed to establish itself as one of the App Store’s most successful applications. The App Store also hosted applications that encouraged users to take out a subscription in order to use AI information. ChatGPT’s success even outstripped Microsoft’s Bing and Edge applications, which integrated GPT-4. It’s worth noting that Microsoft’s Bing and Edge applications came out on top if all downloads in the USA are taken into account. However, if only iOS installations are taken into account, ChatGPT takes the lead.

These results also give an idea of how the numbers will soar if and when the app becomes available on Android. For now, it’s not clear when OpenAI will launch the app for Androidbut the company has stated that this is in the pipeline. The number of installations is expected to increase when ChatGPT becomes available in other regions. It was previously reported that OpenAI plans to launch ChatGPT in 11 additional markets around the world. Ultimately, ChatGPT will become one of the most installed AI apps on iOS and Android.

The data collected is still in its early stages, as the app is new to the market. We’ll have a better understanding of demand for the app once we receive a report on market reactions.
