Pixelmator 2.2 Surpasses 500,000 Downloads in Its First Week

Earlier, we told you about a major new update to Pixelmator, a popular and affordable Photoshop competitor for Mac. The update introduced over 100 new features – and Pixelmator’s customers were swift to show their appreciation by downloading over 500,000 copies of Pixelmator 2.2 in just one week!

From the Pixelmator blog:

A whopping total of 500,000 downloads in just a single week have made Pixelmator 2.2 Blueberry our most successful release ever. Again. Only this time, the number of downloads was double that of Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry, which had “only” 250,000 downloads in two weeks.

And as if that wasn’t enough already, you surprised us yet again. Thanks to you, Pixelmator is now the highest rated app on the Mac App Store—a complete five-star app.

Thank you so much for all of this!

The update also set a new record as their most successful release to date! The previous record was held by Pixelmator 2.1, which hit 250,000 downloads in two weeks. The update came out last Thursday, and is highly recommended whether you’ve tried previous versions or not. It’s available now for $14.99 from the App Store.

Congrats, Pixelmator!
