Temple Run to smash Android app records
As with all things we have to move on and while Angry Birds was one of the most popular apps for a number of years there is a new king in town, but it’s currently only available on iOS. The app in question is Temple Run and we would have thought that Android would have had it by now, and once it does there is no doubt it will smash records for their app store.
We already know it’s coming to Android but so far its been hard to pin down an exact date, but we have been told that Imangi Studios will announce when this will be on their Facebook Group. Reading some of the reactions you can see that fans of the game are eager to see Android get Temple Run, as they are now feeling a little sick of the fact that iOS users have been enjoying the game for 6 months now.
It’s not just on Facebook where fans have been screaming out for an Android version of Temple Run, they have also been taking to a number of forums and also Twitter. The developer has not shared much on there in terms of a release date, but it was by a tweet that we learned they would announce the release date on Facebook.
There is a whole bunch of new apps coming to Android but none of them will be able to compete with Temple Run, which makes you wonder why the developers are dragging their heals on the release? Now is the time for other apps to take advantage of the situation before it’s too late and the hottest app of the moment goes live on Android Market.
Because of the success of Temple Run it’s no surprise that there have been a host of clones trying to share in the spoils, last month there was Temple Jump and this month we have Temple Guns. For those who do not pay attention could download one of these apps instead of the real thing because not only are the names similar but so are the Apple Store icons as well.
However, we would advise you to look carefully at the screenshots on the App Store, as you can clearly see the difference but the easiest way to tell them apart is the cost, because the clones usually cost around $0.99 while the real version is free.
Android needs this app soon because in the six months since its release Temple Run has more than 36 million downloads on iOS and as such will be a big success on the rival mobile OS. It was assumed that February 9, 2012 was going to be the release date but that day has been and gone, even the 24th of this month is also looking very unlikely. Don’t believe any of these so-called release dates anymore, just keep an eye on their Facebook Group for official confirmation.
