APP NEWS: Tik Tok Beats Instagram, Facebook to Become No.1 Downloaded App In The US
Chinese short video sharing platform TikTok is the most downloaded non-game app of January 2020 in the US
The wildly-popular viral video app, TikTok, has dethroned WhatsApp to emerge as the most-downloaded app globally. According to data released by Sensor Tower earlier this month, TikTok was the top non-game application in January on both the Play Store and the App Store with more than 104.7 million installs, which represented a 46 percent increase from January 2019. Do note that the numbers don’t take into account the various third-party Android platforms in China and elsewhere, so the overall numbers are much higher.
According to app analytics company Sensor Tower, the app was downloaded 7.7 million times combined on Google Play Store and Apple App Store which was 23.8 times more than the number of downloads in January 2019.
