Top Free Android Apps August (UK, Germany, France)

SimilarWeb, the leader in digital measurement, has released their August App Index data for global countries. Last week we examined paid Android apps in America; this week’s focus is on the top free Android apps in Europe, for the UK, Germany and France. SimilarWeb’s app index is a ranking of apps within a market by the volume of usage. The proprietary ranking is calculated from the percentage of phones that have the app installed, the number of sessions per user, and average session duration.

 

For top free apps in Europe, there has been very little variation from last month’s analysis, as the most used apps tend to be stable in this category. One main difference to note is the ascent of personalization app HTC Sense Home. The app has moved up one rank place in both the U.K. and Germany.

In France, WhatsApp is much further down in rank place as compared to the UK and Germany. 3 different Google apps – Google Chrome, Google Quick Searchbox, and YouTube – comprise the top 5 most used apps. France is also the only country out of the 3 European countries analyzed that has a gaming app on the list – Clash of Clans. Again, Clean Master (Boost & Applock) has also risen in rank.
