A mid western based company, WET Productions produced a press release (below) about their success in the Application industry. Their Apps are known as “Virtual Girlfriend Lite” and “Virtual Boyfriend Lite”. To give you a bit of an insight of these Apps are basically designed to simulate the physical feature of having a partner, but virtually. This has caught on with many people around the world as they have just exceeded their 1 millionth download recently.
The ‘Lite’ version shown in the press release has installed this amount onto iOS devices due to WET Productions’ marketing techniques. It is not like many other App developers who make an App they intend to charge for, but then take some features off of it and make that version free. WET Productions have made the effort of optimizing the App so you still have a good experience when using the free version (they support ads and also offer a pro version).
The press release:
My Virtual Girlfriend and Boyfriend apps surpass 1 million installs – Published on 02/06/12
Nevada based WET Productions announced that their flagship “My Virtual” series free apps recently surpassed the 1 million install. My Virtual Boyfriend Lite and My Virtual Girlfriend Lite are dating simulation games in where the player must make the proper choices in order to make progress with their virtual date.

Las Vegas, Nevada – WET Productions is pleased to announce that their flagship “My Virtual” series free apps recently surpassed the 1 million install.
“It’s a big milestone for us to cross that 1 millionth download”, says Mike Amerson, President of WET Productions. “Both games average 3000 new installs per day and have a monthly active user rate of over 100,000 players. If we include the full versions of the games it’s even more. Due to their success, we recently expanded into offering ad space across our games, allowing other developers a way to gain exposure for their apps across our entire player base. This has been proven especially effective with other free apps that have to do with dating and relationships.”
