Top Free Android Apps July 2015 (UK, Germany, & France)

SimilarWeb, the leader in digital measurement, has just released their July App Index. 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 the month of July the top free Android apps in three European countries were analyzed, displaying a mix of social and communication apps. For the UK and Germany, the 1st and 2nd most used apps on the list were Facebook and Whatsapp, albeit in reversed order; for the UK, Facebook was the most used free Android app, while in Germany Whatsapp took top place.

The top 10 most used apps in the UK only varied slightly since the previous month. The only app on the list not present in June is video call and texting app Viber, which was the 12th most used app in June. This month Viber made the top 10 list, replacing popular Clean Master phone optimizer.

 

For Germany, the list is slightly more varied as compared to the previous month, with apps in positions 5-9 varying one or two places from June. However all 10 apps on the list were also the most used apps in Germany the previous month as well. Rounding out the list is call and texting app LINE, which made the list instead of popular calling app Viber. LINE seems to be much more prevalent in Germany than its competitor.

For France, the list is more surprising due to a app placement that differs from most of the other countries in that Whatsapp is not in either the 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd positions on the list. The app appears at #6 on the list – just missing placement in the top 5 most used apps. France is also the only country analyzed with a gaming app on the top 10 list. Clash of Clans has been holding firm to 9th position on the list, where it also placed the previous month.
