People spend more money than ever on smartphone apps and games

As long as we have a smartphone, we also have apps that ask for some kind of payment or subscription. We may have been reluctant to spend a lot of money on apps in the early days, but that has changed dramatically in recent years, especially during the pandemic. In 2021, $ 133 billion was spent on applications by all smartphone users, which is a significant increase compared to last year.

On the Apple side, the App Store has raised $ 85,1 billion in 2021, compared to $ 72,3 billion in 2020. However, growth is statistically lower, at 17,7% - it is still an improvement, but not as great as Google's.


The app that makes the most money on Google Play is Google One - it turns out that 15 GB of free storage on Drive is not enough for many people. And it is closely followed by Piccoma (a Japanese manga subscription service) and Disney +. In the Apple App Store, the highest-grossing app is TikTok, which ranks fourth on Android.
