Top Free Android Apps August (India)

SimilarWeb, the leader in digital measurement, has released their August App Index data for global countries. Last week we examined the top free and top paid Android apps for European countries including the UK, Germany and France; this week’s focus is on 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.


Typically the top ten most used free Android apps in any given country remain fairly stable month to month. This month, the top free Android apps in India are especially strong, as the list is nearly identical from July. The only variation is the app ranking in at #10. HTC Sense Home continues to climb the charts, displacing Gmail as a top ten most used app.


Clean Master (Boost & AppLock) continues to hold firm at 8th place since the app’s appearance on the top ten list last month. As always, Whatsapp, Facebook, and MX Player continue to lead the list in the top 3 ranks, respectively.
