Reddit loves our App!

David @Zwenza

On Sunday I was casually browsing through r/reactnative when I figured out that people actually share their apps there.

So I thought, why not try and share Avocation there as well. I might get some more downloads?

Well we didn't expect this.

When I woke up the next morning and checked my App statistics I saw around 100 new installations over night! I checked Reddit and the post already had almost a hundred upvotes and a lot of people sharing nice feedback in there.

In the end this one little post gained around 200 upvotes and brought as approximately 350 downloads (distributed equally between iOS and Android) which is crazy for us, because previously we gained around 200 in total (over one month after release)!

I kinda expected users to deinstall the app right away after checking it out, since I thought a lot are only interested in the technical details, but two days later only a very tiny amount deinstalled the app yet (around 20 out of 350). So that gives us a lot of hope :)

We already prepared a list of other relevant subreddits where we try to pull of the same, let's see if it will work out 🙌

This has been an insane boost in motivation, so let's see what the future brings!
