Top Paid Android Apps July 2015 (UK, Germany and France)

SimilarWeb, the leader in digital measurement, has just released their July App Index for paid Android apps. 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.


Just a few days prior, SimilarWeb published their app index ranking for the top free Android apps in the UK, Germany and France. This post illustrates the top paid Android apps for those countries.


The top paid apps list for each country reflects more variation than the top free apps lists. Yet all three countries analyzed have gaming, personalization and weather apps dominating their top used paid apps. Popular gaming app Minecraft also made all three lists.
