In this article we will talk about Which are the most downloaded applications this year?
Probably the first app that comes to mind is Instagram, Twitter or even WhatsApp despite the fact that more and more people are moving to Telegram and other alternatives. And depending on the operating system you have in mind (iOS or Android) you may be right, or not.
The Most downloaded APKs
The Sensor Tower analysis company has published the list of the applications with more downloads in the first months of the year and there is a big difference between iPhone users and Android users. Among Apple’s most successful app has been Tik Tok, the best known among young people in India and China and is designed to share small music videos (15 seconds) created by users. It was the most purchased last year in the App Store and remains unbeatable in 2019 with more than 30 million downloads. Followed by YouTube and Instagram in the top 3.

In Google Play, however, WhatsApp is the queen of applications with almost 200 million downloads in the first months of 2019 alone. Thanks to this, Mark Zuckerberg’s instant messaging app once again gets the top position of the most downloaded apps in total this year. Behind her is Messenger (another one from Zuckerberg) and Tik Tok which in Android adds a total of approximately 150 million downloads.

Surprisingly no dating app (or Tinder, Bumble or any other) appears in the top 20 of iOS or Android. Meanwhile, other classics such as Twitter, Spotify and Snapchat remain among users’ favorites although well below the rest. In addition, it should be noted that one of the most successful applications in the App Store is Gmail, Google’s email service, and that despite the fact that iOS of course has its own version in which all accounts can be added email and receive notifications through a single app.
