Top QSR apps in the U.S. for August 2022 by Downloads

From Apptopia
The top 10 quick-service restaurant apps in the U.S. were downloaded 10.3 million times in August, 14.8 percent less than those the month prior. Year-over-year in the month of August, downloads of the top 36 quick-service restaurant apps are up 18.9 percent. A download represents a new user and the first conversion on the mobile app customer’s journey. While the order has changed, every one of July’s 10 most downloaded quick-service restaurant apps have returned in August’s lineup. Dunkin’ moved up two spots from No. 9 to No. 7, very likely due to the release of its pumpkin spice flavored drinks and treats.

Cash advance apps grow 69% year-over-year, more than other fintech sectors

From Apptopia
The vibes surrounding consumer financial companies are not what they used to be, but Apptopia data makes one think the negative sentiment has gone too far. While installs (new users) of top consumer fintech apps are down 14% year-over-year in Q3, they are up 19.4% over Q3 in 2020. This is more of a situation where water is finding its level. Still, that doesn't mean that things are not shifting and responding to economic activity. Certain sectors of the fintech industry are being hit harder than others, while some are growing as opportunity (via inflation) presents itself.

Q2 Earnings Review: Mobile signals that outsmarted consensus

From Apptopia
In Q2, Apptopia's mobile data identified leading indicators and trend shifts in tickers weeks ahead of consensus for a number of stocks, as mobile performance correlates with company key performance indicators. As our team has worked alongside investors to uncover correlations that can help predict earnings outcomes, we find cases every quarter where the nuances to mobile performance metrics make all the difference. For example, when Netflix went after password-sharing, it impacted the metrics that mattered.

Amazon sets new record for monthly downloads in August, thanks to back to school shoppers

From Apptopia
Amazon just had its best month of U.S. downloads on record, bringing in 5.5 million downloads this August. The 65% year-over-year (YoY) growth for the month is also its highest YoY growth rate for any given month in the last seven years. Setting this record in August signals that Amazon has hit it off with back to school shoppers — the target audience of its multimillion dollar ad campaigns for the past two months — even as brick and mortar retail app performance is stronger than ever this quarter.

Home Depot mobile growth doubles Lowe’s, year-to-date

From Apptopia
The Home Depot is climbing the ranks of Retail apps. For two quarters in a row, Home Depot gained twice as many new installs than direct competitor, Lowe's.

On average between the two home improvement competitors, Home Depot has pulled in 100% more monthly downloads since January. A paid App Store Optimization (ASO) keyword strategy appears to be a key driver to Home Depot’s comfortable margin ahead of Lowe's this year.

Meal Kit app usage grows 98% since Q4 2021 as Meal Delivery apps stagnate

As Americans realize economic pressures, mobile data shows that high cost conveniences may be being cut. The Ultrafast Delivery app market (Getir, Gopuff, etc.) is a perfect poster child example. In Q2, it declined growth for the first time in two years at a -30% loss.

Top 10 Entertainment Apps for H1 2022 by Downloads

From Apptopia
Spotify is the most installed entertainment app through the first half of 2022. We've also posted the overall download leaders for H1 2022. Spotify was #9 globally but did not break into the U.S. list. Even with Netflix's struggles, it's consistently being downloaded more than its competition, just not in its home market of the United States. If we had included TikTok in the Entertainment category (which may happen moving forward), it would have led all apps both globally and in the United States.

Top 10 Finance & Banking apps, H1 2022

From Apptopia
PayPal is still dominating the global payments scene, with close to 50 million downloads in the first half of 2022. PhonePe, which is not far behind PayPal, is a bit of a Super app. Used almost exclusively in India, it enables users to do everything from send friends money, buy ecommerce goods, invest in stocks and more. While super apps are less common in the United States, PayPal and Cash App are both heading that way, continually adding abilities to generate a larger share of the market and access more user data.
