Top Free Android Apps in September (India)

SimilarWeb, the leader in digital measurement, has released their September App Index data for global countries. This week we’ll begin exploring the top used free and paid Android apps for the month, beginning with the top free Android apps in India.


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.


Following in the trend of app stability for top used free Android apps, September shows that the top free Android apps list has varied only slightly from the previous month. In fact, the only difference is that Facebook Messenger has switched places in rank with Clean Master (Boost & AppLock); in August the phone booster was in 8th place, while Facebook Messenger took 9th rank; this month Messenger has moved up while the Clean Master has fallen one place in rank.


The rest of the list of top free Android apps have remained the same. In particular, the top 3 apps – Whatsapp, Facebook and MX Player – have remained the top 3 most used Adnroid apps in India for the past 6 months.
