Sudden increase in downloads: Geocaching Helper for BB PlayBook

I just noticed that after my release of version 2.0.2 of the Geocaching Helper for BlackBerry PlayBook it's downloads increased rapidly. More than 45 downloads in one day compared to the average 2-5 downloads a day. The problem though, is that I don't know if those downloads are new installs or just updates.
The BlackBerry App World Vendor Portal is not really good, because generating statistics is too complicated and the only statistics you can generate are download and purchase charts – which aren't even interactive. Just look at the following image and you know what I mean. It displays the download-chart that a vendor gets from BlackBerry. Very sad, especially if you know the Android Market Developer Console.

Even though the vendor portal doesn't provide much information, what annoys me the most is the y-axis of the download-statistics: why do they show 0.5-steps? Is it really possible to download half an app and is the App World really capable to count those half downloads? And even if it can, it's certainly not useful!
