Looking at the list, TikTok is still the most popular application worldwide. The short video sharing application saw the highest number of downloads in both the App Store and Google Play, making it the highest download app overall as well. A total of 63.3 million installs were recorded during the month with Indonesia seeing the highest number of downloads followed by Brazil.
Notably, the list is for nongaming related applications, so video game titles are not ranked. Furthermore, despite the original boom period being over, Zoom is still doing extremely well in the Apple App Store with over 52.2 million downloads, coming in at the 2nd. On Android, the application fell to the 5th position. Other known names like FacebookWhatsApp, and Instagram can also be found on the list. Although, these social media platforms can be found in varying positions on different platforms.
Sensor Tower estimated the downloaded figures through its own sources between the period of August 1 to August 31, with only unique downloads being counted and not pre installed ones. This metric shows that TikTok is still a market leader in various markets despite facing a ban in India and issues in the US as well, two of its primary markets. And in another sense, work from home is increasingly becoming the norm with Zoom seeing great success with its services.
