The App Annie Analytics Project has identified the most popular apps in the world that people download and use the most. The time span of the study covers the last ten years. Experts have identified separate ratings for mobile applications, the most popular games, and services where users spent the most money.
In the world top list, the most downloaded applications are as follows. The leader of the rating was the social network Facebook, followed by the service Facebook Messenger. Overall, Facebook occupied almost the entire first half of the world's top ten, as the third and fourth places were taken by platforms owned by the company: WhatsApp and Instagram. They are followed by Snapchat. The top ten also includes the popular services YouTube, Skype, TikTok, UC Browser and Twitter.
The most financially successful app of the decade, where users left the most money, was the Netflix video platform. The second place in this ranking was taken by the dating service Tinder, which offers advanced features on a paid basis. Spotify and YouTube are also on the list.
Over the past decade, Danish-made Subway Surfers has taken the first place among the most downloaded game projects. In addition to her, Temple Run 2, Minion Rush, My Talking Tom, Pokemon GO, Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga were in the top 10, with the last two games also making it into the top ten user spending.
In USA, the trend of the greatest demand for instant messengers and other social services coincides with global trends. However, if you look at what the most popular app has come out on top in the country over the past ten years, the answer will differ from the world ranking. If in the world the most downloaded platform was the social network Facebook, then in USA the top 10 applications were headed by WhatsApp. It is followed by the domestic product "VKontakte", and Viber closes the top three. Interestingly, Sberbank Online is one of the ten most popular services.
In addition, the most popular applications among USA users also include Instagram, Avito message board, Odnoklassniki.ru, Skype, Yandex.Browser and the Aliexpress online store. The list of platforms where USAs have spent the most money consists of social media, streaming services and dating apps, which also coincides with the preferences of users around the world. VKontakte took the first position in this rating, followed by Odnoklassniki. The third place is occupied by the library of e-books Litres, followed by the music services Boom and Yandex.Music. The most downloaded game in USA is the same as in the world - Subway Surfers.
