INTRO: The Viral TikTok clone Mitron has now hit 1 crore installations on Google Play Store. According to data from App Brain, the app hit the milestone earlier in the week.
“There is a strong sentiment of #VocalForLocal. We are proudly building Mitron to reimagine digital engagement and entertainment while being sensitive to the users in our market and being compliant with our local laws,” Mitron creator Shivank Agarwal told Gadgets360.
The app has skilled quite a lot of noticeable controversies ever since the developers launched it a few months back. While most of the Pakistan-based company Qboxus’ CEO claims to possess developed the code, both of the Mitron’s creators Shivank Agarwal and Anish Khandelwal claim to possess purchased the template from Australian marketplace EnvatoMarket.
In addition with all of that, Google recently removed the Mitron app from the Play Store for violating Google Play’s “spam and minimum functionality” policy. The app, however, got reinstated later on. Judging from the numbers, the app is doing quite well in the country.
It is currently no mystery that the Mitron app is now taking complete advantage of the anti-China sentiments that are prevalent across the country. This specific reason is fueling the app’s growth, especially since it doesn’t have any exceptional features that users would find interesting to form a switch from apps like TikTok.
