Popularity Of Mitron App
It was only in the month of April that the Mitron app was released on the play store. Nationwide lockdown gave Mitron app a much-needed push. Also, countrywide demand for ban on TikTok, negative ratings on play store, collective hatred, memes, and viral forwards against TikTok, the love for swadeshi products gave free advertising to Mitron. Similarity in PM Narendra Modi’s address to the crowd and citizens as “Mitroonnnn” could also be the factor behind app’s tremendous success.
Mitron comes at the time when India learns Atma-Nirbharta and Make In India which indirectly triggers the wave for Indian products.
TikTok’s factor in itself is such a big one that Mitron has amassed more than 5 million downloads in such a short span of time. Ratings for Mitron on play store, as we write this article is 4.7/5 which is considered really high.

Mitron is owned by IIT-Roorkee student named Shivank Agrawal. The growth is so immense for the app that it adds more than half a million downloads per day. It has been listed as #2 social app in Indian charts only behind rival TikTok.
