Online shopping apps account for a large share of minutes spent on smartphones by Indians. As a result, downloads of such apps are soaring. Both Flipkart and Amazon India have crossed 100 million downloads on Google Play. About a month ago, they were in the 50-100 million range. The sudden spike could be explained by the recently concluded festive season that saw both e-commerce firms hosting blockbuster sales for its customers.

Flipkart-owned fashion apps Myntra and Jabong, meanwhile, are in the 10-50 million download range. Flipkart and Amazon India have almost always ranked in the top 10 most-used apps in India. Others include entertainment app Hotstar, which was the first app in the country to cross the 100 million download-mark in April. MyJio, the bouquet of content and services offered by telco Reliance Jio, became the second to reach the milestone in August. It was also one of the quickest apps in the world to touch 100 million Play Store downloads.

Among the other most downloaded apps are taxi operator Ola, and much-battered e-commerce marketplace Snapdeal. Both apps have been downloaded over 50 million times. However, Snapdeal could undergo uninstalls going ahead now that it has ceased to be in the top five e-commerce destinations in the country. Paytm, one of the top consumer internet firms today, has 50 million downloads as well. It claims to have over 200 million users. Possibly several of them are using the platform over the web. Paytm recently spun off its marketplace unit into Paytm Mall which has recorded 5 million downloads. ALSO READ: Smartphone users in India spend 4 hours on apps everyday: App Annie

Social media apps like Facebook, WhatsApp and Messenger continue to be the most-used apps in India. However, country-specific download numbers aren’t available for them. India meanwhile is the top download market for Google Play apps as well as Android s largest user-base. In 2016, Indians had downloaded 6.2 billion apps, up from 3.6 billion in 2015, according to a report by App Annie. India s least active users spent at least 1.5 hours on apps, while the median users dedicated about 2.5 hours each day. And Indians were second in terms of average time spent 90 minutes per month on online shopping, App Annie noted.
