Most downloaded applications and games in the last decade

Google Play Store

We are about to close a decade and start another. This last decade has led to the birth of a new category of applications and games. Applications and games for mobiles have at their disposal a large market that does not stop growing, although in the last year it has begun to show signs of exhaustion.

App Annie has created a classification where not only the most downloaded games and applications of the last decade are found, but also classified, the games and applications that have generated more money both in the Play Store and in the App Store.

Although the birth of both stores is earlier, App Annie only shows us two data since January 2012 (Play Store) and since December 31 (App Store). Facebook cup the list of most downloaded applications with 4 of them: Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram, although these last two did not leave the offices of Mark Zuckerberg.

Thanks to in-app purchases, the most popular streaming service worldwide, Netflix, reaches the top position of the applications that have generated more money, followed by Tinder and Pandora Music. For a little over a year, it is no longer possible to pay the subscription from the application, so it will stop leading this classification in the coming years.

If we talk about games, both among the most downloaded and those that have generated more revenue, we find both Clash of Clans as a Candy Crush Saga
