The Most Downloaded Apps in the World in June
This is a single insight from This Week in Apps #121 - Big Battles Ahead. Check out the full article for more insights.
June's done with, which means it's time to crunch the numbers and rank the most downloaded apps in the world! June saw the return of a familiar face as well as a couple of interesting trends.
Let's start at the top. Instagram was the most downloaded app in the world in June. TikTok, May's winner, saw more downloads in June than in May, but Instagram saw even more. And yes, much of Instagram's growth can be attributed to India, where TikTok is still banned.
Instagram ended June with 57 million downloads and TikTok with 55 million downloads, according to our App Intelligence.
Will TikTok regain its top spot?
Facebook also managed to clear the top 10 list on the App Store side in June after dropping out in May, which surprised many readers. The two never dropped out of the combined list, and June was no different, with the two taking #3 and #6, respectively.
An interesting trend that's been developing for the last few months is Microsoft Word creeping into the top 10 list. Sure, Word is popular on the desktop, but is it really that popular on mobile? The easy answer is yes, but that's not exactly a trend. It became a trend when Google Docs joined the list in June.
Is this just for the summer? Will it continue beyond? We'll have to wait and see.
Together, the top 10 most downloaded apps in the world made their way into 345 million devices, according to our estimates. That's a bit lower than last month but not enough to be concerned about.
