The top ten most downloaded apps across all major mobile platforms
Monday 02 August 2010
Reviews of more than 70,000 applications in the world's second largest app store, GetJar, show applications such as YouTube, Facebook and Yahoo! Mobile are some of the most downloaded across a wide range of mobile platforms.
Application download site GetJar has been keeping an eye on the global downloading habits of users with Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, iOS and Symbian powered devices.
People in more than 200 countries have been visiting the site to find mobile applications for their more than 2000 different devices, and GetJar has been tracking the trends. The company announced its findings on July 29.
While games such as Warships Sea on Fire and Racing Mania topped the games category on GetJar, downloads in the lifestyle, entertainment, music, maps, search, financial, sports and productivity categories are popular with mobile users too.
"Clear patterns are starting to emerge," said GetJar's chief marketing officer, Patrick Mork. "We see Indian consumers downloading more productivity applications that enhance the usage of their phone compared to Americans for example and English consumers downloading more entertainment apps than Indians. Religious apps are popular in the Middle East."
"Downloads by platform are also shifting quickly. Android wasn't even a part of our business last year. Today, it's the 2nd most popular platform developers are submitting on when uploading content to GetJar and we have at least 3 devices in our top 20 list of devices in the US that are Android powered."
