Did you know that the IRS has a mobile app? It's the tax season here in the US, which means millions of people are looking for reimbursement checks. And unlike years before, they are looking for it on their … phones!
Although the IRS2Go app has existed since 2011 for both iOS and Android, it has never reached the coveted # 1 position in either the iOS App Store or Google Play. It changed this weekend. On Friday, IRS2Go climbed to the top of the iOS App Store and stayed there for 48 hours.
The table below shows the app's ranking in the best free maps in both the iOS App Store and Google Play in February: 
What does a # 1
Downloads on the IOS App Store
On Friday, while on the # 1 spot, IRS2Go was downloaded 166K times in the United States on one day. There are a lot of many downloads! For context, apps that make it to the top 5 free chart in the US, are 120k download.
Downloads on Google Play
It's a little different on Google Play, where the IRS saw about 68k downloads on Friday. A top 5 app on Google Play averaged around 60k downloads a day, so the IRS had a good weekend across both platforms.
When the tax season goes down, the app's popularity, but this increase will show us that users rely on their phones more than ever, so if you are developing a useful app, the market is always growing.
