"Flipkart has become the first Indian app to cross the 50 million installs landmark on Google Android Play Store. This landmark was crossed in the first week of February 2016," said a company statement, adding the mobile app has beaten several other popular apps in the genres of communication, social and entertainment to reach the milestone.

In India, Google's Android Operating System (OS) is the leading mobile operating system with the highest share.

According to Flipkart, a app traffic comparison site has ranked its app as India's top shopping app with 47 percent share of all shopping app visits, while, including Myntra, it is 63 percent.
