Compare: what are the popular apps in App Store, Russia and other countries 3 comment
As many of you know, the Apple app stores vary from country to country. It’s not just different set of programs (the main part of the application is present everywhere), and the preferences of users worldwide. We decided to explore the shops in five different countries and find out which apps are popular among them.
First among free apps in Russia is the Walking Pet and Angry Birds 2, Bank app “Sberbank” and… mostly managers and social apps — Viber, WhatsApp, Instagram, Skype, Vkontakte and so on. Also popular program of the Chinese store AliExpress, and below you can find the services of “Yandex” and mail.ru Group.
In paid top the situation is somewhat different: it is mostly games (Fruit Ninja, Construction Simulator 2014, “Dark room”, as well as Minecraft and Farming Simulator). In addition, Russian users love to install applications for accounting and Finance programs like the speedometer or “Radar”.
It turns out, Russian users prefer games-time-killers, to communicate and be alerted to possible police posts.
In the States the situation is somewhat different. Almost all first places are occupied by social applications such as Snapchat and that is not even in the Russian top. Spotify, Pandora Radio and Netflix in Russia do not work, but in the U.S. enjoy an enviable popularity. Not far away a service for finding taxis Uber and, oddly enough, Find My iPhone.
Top paid in the us store is fully captured by the games, diluted occasionally by photo editors.
The Germans love free not only to communicate but also to play soccer, sing karaoke or learn the timetable. Snapchat number 11, which indicates the popularity of the service, not only in the U.S. but also Europe. In the first place social apps, and even the program for listening to music iMusic — icon iTunes.
Below are the photo editing software program for shopping and so on.
For the money in Germany is ready to look at the starry sky, play Farming Simulator, to run with Runtastic and take advantage of the next photo editors. Added to these are fans of Worms, flight simulators and other games.
In the UAE turned out to be avid fans of the VPN, despite the fact that serious restrictions are not there. A lot of messengers, and the unknown Russian users — for example, SOMA and imo. Games in free the top unit.
Surprisingly, and in the top paid App Store, United Arab Emirates very few games. But a lot of photo editors, programs for downloading and viewing videos (one of them in the first place). However, immortal Minecraft and Fruit Ninja still in the top.
Among the 20 top free apps in Brazil just one game — the Angry Birds 2. But in this country it is gaining popularity Periscope and Tinder. Messengers in Brazil less, and in first place again iMusic.
By the fact that in the first place in top paid Brazil posted photo, you can see what I love to do iPhone owners in that country. Camera+, Facetune, Enlight — edit pictures here love. But even more I love to play Minecraft, Fruit Ninja and other popular games. 10 unexpectedly — scanner for documents.
So, what do we have? It is clear that the preferences of users in different countries vary greatly. In some countries, prefer to communicate, in others — edit photo, in the third — to watch and download videos. Russian users expect different from others: social apps we have added are typical of the country a useful program.
Blame the fact that many services are not officially working in Russia and, accordingly, do not release the app for our store.
