We spent over $ 110 billion on applications in 2020

With the difficulties of 2020 and lockdown in many countries, it seems that many turned to online shopping through the Play Store and App Store, as they spent more than $ 110 billion on both digital platforms, increasing its rank 30% in relation to 2019.

Both the App Store and the Play Store grew 30% respectively, but Apple’s platform scored 87.3% more profits in relation to the Google platform. Specifically, App Store users spent $ 72.3 billion in 2020, compared to $ 56 billion in 2019. Respectively, Play Store users spent $ 39 billion in 2020, 9 billion more than in 2019.

On the other hand, they came down from the Play Store 46.1 billion games in 2020, while from the App Store just 10.1 billion. For the Google platform, the game with the most downloads is Garena Free Fire, while for the App Store at the top we see Among Us.

Finally, we saw an increase in downloads for the first time, with data from the App Store and Play Store combined to show us 143 billion downloads, 23.7% that is more than in 2019. Of course, if all goes well and the countries come out of quarantine, these numbers will be reduced in 2021.
