Opera iPhone App is Hugely Popular

The Opera iPhone app, released two days ago, has already proven to be a huge success. It was at the top of the download chart within twenty-four hours of being released and has been downloaded over one million times since its release. Apple took three weeks to approve it for sale in the app store.

Opera Mini is not the first iPhone app that is an alternative to the Safari browser. A browser app called iCab was released in May 2009. However, Opera Mini is one of the first well-known browsers to be developed for the iPhone.

Apps have to be written for particular phones to offer a good quality experience. Opera has not developed an app for the iPad, instead saying that the iPhone version of Opera Mini will work on the iPad.
