My understanding is the enterprise version is scheduled to come out the end of next year. So 2015 should be the year when hopTo either makes it or breaks it.
hopTo has been ranking in the top 1000 of free productivity apps in 138 countries for a couple of days now and showed up in the top 1000 overall app rankings in about 42 countries today, 12-6-13. You have to wonder how all of this translates into number of users. If there was an average of 5K users per country, at 138 countries, that is 690K users, already ahead of the hopTo's conservative estimate of 420K users for 2014. It is just speculation but certainly not crazy estimates.
I just assumed the daily rankings indicate the number of downloads for one particular day. I don't think the large changes in position would make sense otherwise.
I should add that hopto is ranked in the top 100 in 100 countries and the top 200 in 113 countries.
ranked 5th in productivity category in US and 6th in Canada. ranked 75th overall in US. These are amazing rankings.
I was able to post on the HPTO message board. I got to the board the same way i get to this one. I type in HPTO in the "Get Message Board for:" section above the "Search Message Board" section located above the posts. It appears that HPTO trading has been halted.
The "Support" and "Blog" sections of the hopTo website have been taken down and the app has been removed from the App store, just as Eldad said he would do before the launch. It may happen this week or next. It is already overdue.
Now ranked in top 1000 in 63 countries today. That is a record so far. And again this is without any marketing or pr effort. Ranked in top 100 in 5 countries today. Ranked in top 400 in 24 countries today.
US - ranked 299 today
United Kingdom - ranked 235 today
Canada - ranked 296 today
Top ranking - 45 in Jamaica
It doesn't look like hopTo is going to release 2.0 by the end of the quarter (Monday the 30th) as promised but who knows. If not, I really hope they release within a couple of weeks at least.
Why won't Yahoo give us a message board for HPTO?
