Interestingly,  Tinder was the highest grossing non-game app in this period. It generated an estimated $497 million in revenue across both the Apple App Store and Google Play. This is up 32% over the same period of 2018.

Other high grossing non gaming apps include Netflix ($399 million globally estimated for Q1 and Q2), Tencent Video ($278 million), IQ1YI and YouTube. And TikTok continues to beat Instagram, claiming fourth position in the list of most downloaded apps globally.

New! Mobile Photography, Art & Videography – App of the Day


We are always working on new features and ideas here at TheAppWhisperer HQ, one that we are bringing to fruition today is to introduce a new Mobile Photography, Art or Videography App of the day, some you may of heard of, others might be completely new to you. Whatever your developmental stage into the beautiful immersive and supportive world of Mobile Photography, Art and Videography, we’re hoping to keep you fully informed at all times.

The other point to bear in mind, is not all of the apps we introduce here will be for the iOS system, we have been testing the Huawei P10 for sometime now and we are hugely impressed with not only its camera but its photographic output as well including the apps from the Google Play store that fit it so well. It’s a few years since I’ve written for Android Magazine, but it’s an area I’ve kept a close eye on.

We always welcome feedback here at TheAppWhisperer, so if there’s a particular app that you feel we really should be shouting about, please let us know in the comments below.
