This landmark has been achieved in just 2 weeks.
The Remove China Apps has crossed 5 Million downloads within just 2 weeks of its launch. It is becoming a common scenario in contemporary times for apps to shatter previous records in terms of downloads. Most of these are attributed to the ongoing anti-China sentiment which is quite strongly spread out in almost every country where COVID-19 is wreaking havoc. There is no dearth of apps like these.
Although the first app to make news was the Aarogya Setu App, which is the Government of India’s app to fight against the Corona Virus, but apps like Mitron, Remove China Apps are also gaining momentum. In response to every popular app that has originated in China, Indian companies are working day and night to offer an alternative to the masses.
Especially in India, the Anti-China sentiment is quite high. There are multiple reasons that are contributing to this. The biggest of all is obviously the Corona outbreak in the country. Another reason that has recently given fuel to this sentiment is the Indo-China border dispute. A few days earlier, controversy made by Chinese app Tiktok over allowing a video on its platform which justified acid attacks on women also sparked a lot of outrage in the country. People even went to the extent of giving negative reviews to the app on the play store eventually bringing its ratings down to 1.1. Although, Google later reversed all those reviews and deleted many negative reviews to restore the Chinese Apps ratings.
