Web browsers for mobiles such as Firefox and Safari usually work well. They are designed to work for touch screen devices and as such they have some touch based features included in the app. However they do not exploit the touch features completely.
This is where Dolphin enters the scene. Dolphin was established in 2010 and was the first third party browser on Android. Today Dolphin has more than 100 million users worldwide.
In this article I want to focus on the Growth Hacking Techniques they employed to grow their user base to such stupendous numbers and how you can use the same for your app growth.
Edith Yeung, the VP of International Business Development at Dolphin, wrote an article inVenture Beat about the growth hacking techniques Dolphin employed to grow. This article draws heavily from that.
Yeung doesn’t explain some things in detail like what exactly they did. Perhaps that’s due to privacy policies of the company. But she says that she learned some lessons in growth hacking while growing Dolphin and she has mentioned them in the article, albeit not specifically but too generally.
