SimilarWeb, the leader in digital measurement, has released their July App Index for free Android apps in America. 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.
App stability is common amongst top free Android apps, and this month was no exception. As with the majority of top apps in this category, the top used Android apps in America are nearly identical to those topping the list in June.
In the USA, communication and social apps dominate the top apps list, which is a slight variation from that of other countries. In India and Europe, for example, personalization apps are also prevalent in the top free apps list.
