Sprint ID Gaining Momentum, Six Million Packs Downloaded in the Past Year


Sprint ID recently celebrated its one-year anniversary, and according to Sprint, it has become quite a popular service. Launched last year, Sprint ID gives customers an easy way of customizing their devices with content and apps most likely to suit their interests. Pre-packed bundles allow customers to avoid rummaging through the hundreds of thousands of apps that populate the Android Market. While I prefer the adventure of app hunting, I can certainly see how Sprint ID packs would appeal to some — and by “some,” I mean millions!

According to Sprint, customers have downloaded over six million Sprint ID packs within the past year, averaging over 500,000 downloads per month. The most popular branded Sprint ID packs include Disney Channel, ESPN, E!, Glu Games, MTV, NASCAR, and Yahoo!. Sprint continues to beef up their offerings and currently has 12 Sprint ID-capable devices and 45 ID packs. Check out the table below for a better look at what’s offered:

Sprint customers can download up to five ID packs at a time, all of which are free as long as you’re on the Everything data plan. I believe we’ll be seeing more bundled content in the future as more and more people seem to be consuming data via mobile devices.

Any Sprint customers out there? Have you downloaded a Sprint ID pack? What did you think? Useful or just more junk you didn’t need? Let us know in the comments below.
