Top-performing fintech apps invest in cultural relevance

From Apptopia
On Friday Kendrick Lamar announced his first tour in 5 years and presale tickets could be purchased via Cash App. This was no surprise after our findings in the Brand Relative App Growth Index (BRAG Index) revealed partnerships was a popular mobile marketing strategy used by top apps over the last six months. The savviest of apps, like Cash App and Chick-fil-A, thought beyond brand marketing and used partnerships to drive installs by lining up value on the other side.

Entertainment ticketing apps are above pre-pandemic levels

From Apptopia
Monthly active users of the top entertainment ticketing apps in the United States are up 511% year-over-year in the first quarter. Remember the trauma from 2020 when all events, including Taylor Swift, Doja Cat, and BTS concerts, kept getting canceled or rescheduled? The ticket marketplace was the only industry that felt the pandemic induced frustration more than you did. As the global entertainment industry took a massive hit due to state-imposed lockdowns, event ticket resale companies witnessed a record fall in downloads and active users.

Top teen banking apps have slowed growth

From Apptopia
As a market, Apptopia estimates the top six teen banking apps in the United States have seen downloads fall 26% year-over-year in the first quarter. Monthly active users have fallen alongside, but this is mostly due to the two largest players, Step and Greenlight, slowing growth while their competition has strengthened. Over the past five years or so, the explosion of financial tech (fintech) products and the importance consumers are placing on financial education have increased.

Live shopping apps have best quarter ever, yet feel lackluster

From Apptopia
Even though the top eight live shopping apps have grown installs 123% YoY in the first quarter, performance feels lackluster when considering the venture capital investments made into these companies. Apps like Whatnot, NTWRK and, Popshop Live, act as a QVC right on users' phones, where they watch a live feed from a seller talking about an item, oftentimes accompanied by a live auction. In fact, QVC started its own live shopping app, likeQ, in December 2021.

More Women used Trust Wallet when Crypto Price Volatility was Lower

From Apptopia
Crypto app installs grew by over 400% year over year in 2021 – but the gender ratio between male and female users has barely moved from 80:20 since the beginning of 2020. I reviewed demographic data from Apptopia's Audience Intelligence for the top 5 Crypto apps in the United States: Coinbase (Exchange), FTX, Crypto.com, Trust Wallet and Voyager. The one moment in time when one of these apps had an active female user base of more than 30% was July through November 2020, for Trust Wallet (owned by Binance).

Social app of the moment, BeReal, grows users 315% YTD

From Apptopia
BeReal is a social/photo app you designed to share your authentic life with close friends. Year-to-date, its monthly active users have grown 315%. The app launched in December 2019 but 65% of its lifetime downloads have taken place this calendar year. So what it BeReal and why is it different than other social media apps? Much like Dispo, which also launched in December 2019, the app's goal is to get away from detailed curation and professional influencers.

HBO Max & Discovery+: the whole may be greater than the sum of their parts

From Apptopia
As you probably heard, Discovery and WarnerMedia are merging, which means streaming services HBO Max and Discovery+ are also merging, likely at some point in April. It's also possible that before they merge, they will engage in a bundle, similar to that of Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+. Assuming the apps merged today, we wanted to look at what the market share of the top 10 streaming subscription services in the United States would look like:

From Apptopia
The sneaker app market has witnessed a massive uptick since the summer of 2020, with both monthly downloads and monthly active users (MAU) seeing sizable increases of nearly 20%.

Personal Finance App MAUs Climb to All-Time High

From Apptopia
Monthly active users of the top personal financial tracking and budgeting apps in the United States have hit an all-time high in February 2022. People are trying to get their shit together in 2022, and it could partially be due to TikTok. We're looking at apps like Mint, Truebill and EveryDollar. These apps help people organize and manage their personal finances. I think the combination of the r/wallstreetbets storyline last year, the rise of crypto in popular culture, and "finfluencers" on social media, has created more interest and more savvy in the personal finance space.
