Sensor Tower announces mobile app research results for October. The platform’s announcement reveals which apps smartphone users around the world downloaded the most in October. Looking at the data described, it shows that interest in TikTok, one of the most popular social media platforms in recent years, is growing a little more every day, although it is often discussed.
Sensor Tower’s research only covers data from the Google Play Store and App Store. Also, mobile games on the market are not included in Sensor Tower’s research. But it is still necessary to say that even these data are very consistent. So which mobile apps did users around the world show interest in in October?
October data from the App Store and Google Play Store show that users downloaded the most TikTok. As a result, the most downloaded mobile app in October comes across as TikTok. This app was followed by Zoom on the iOS platform and WhatsApp on the Android platform. The reason WhatsApp has so many downloads in the Android ecosystem is due to the glut of new Android phones on the market.
Looking at the data shared by Sensor Tower, we see that users are generally interested in social networking and messaging applications. In this context, the popularity of the Widgetsmith app in the App Store is an indication that the widgets that come with iOS 14 are trying to be customized by users. Snapchat, meanwhile, an ancestor of social media, seems to have been reborn from the ashes in recent times.
Sensor Tower also announced the number of downloads of the most popular apps in October. TikTok, according to this, was downloaded in October for a total of around 66 million. This means that the number of downloads increased by 9.5 percent compared to the same period last year. WhatsApp was downloaded 57 million times worldwide in October. India accounted for 30 percent of these downloads.
