A Comscore study has revealed some interesting statistics on the most used apps on Android and iOS. To everyone's surprise, the pre-installed default applications dominate the list of each platform. Others are mainly social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, along with e-commerce sites such as Amazon and Walmart. There are two Samsung apps on this list, but they are not what you think.
Samsung makes its first appearance at number 13 with the Samsung Calculator app which has 38,5 million active monthly users. One would expect Samsung Health or Samsung Pay to be there. However, Samsung Email is the second app to reach the top 20 in terms of number 19 ranking with a monthly user base of 25,8 million users.
This study recorded the habits of users living in the United States. Samsung has a small market share of 27% in the region, compared to Apple's 49%. Besides, most Android users almost certainly stick with specific apps like Google Maps and Gmail instead of the alternatives the company provides. Take for example the Galaxy Store, although it is pre-installed on all Samsung smartphones, users still prefer Google Play Store.
In addition, the test methodology for the survey appears to be somewhat flawed, as it does not distinguish between different Android OEMs. This could be the reason why Samsung's most frequently used applications are missing from the list and seemingly unpopular applications such as Samsung Calculator and Samsung Email have appeared. So we present the specific one with every reservation for its results.
