With the first week of March coming to a close, it’s time to take a look at the rankings of world’s most downloaded apps of February 2021.
Before getting into the merits of the top 10, some assumptions must be made: first, the data comes from the Sensor Tower platform; secondly, three rankings have been drawn up: one for the Google Play Store, another forApple App Store and a general one; finally, these rankings do not take into account the games, but all the other applications.
World’s most downloaded apps in February 2021
Tik Tok (don’t forget about follow us there too) continues to get impressive numbers and, with 56 million installations, wins the title of the most downloaded application in the world in February 2021. These figures are attributable 18 percent to China and 11 percent to the United States. It is curious to notice how Tik Tok It has both the overall primacy and that of the App Store, but in the Google Play Store it sits right at the foot of the podium.
The second place overall (and in the Google Play Store) is the prerogative of Facebook, which has reported a total of 45 million installs. Of these, 27 percent made it to India, 8 percent to the United States.
The month of February 2021 was extremely positive for Zuckerberg’s company, which also places Instagram in third place, WhatsApp in fourth and Messenger in ninth.
Then there are some particular situations that deserve a look: YouTube was the second most downloaded application in the App Store, but it does not appear in the top 10 of the Google Play Store since the ranking does not count the pre-installed applications; Telegram ranks fifth in the Play Store’s top 10 and overall, but it seems to be of much less interest to iOS users; ranks seventh in the App Store ranking Club house, the latest social phenomenon that should soon land on Android as well.
Below you will find the full classifications.
