These figures show that the epidemic has a significant impact on the application market. In the first quarter of 2020, blockade measures will be introduced all over the world. The policy of home isolation forced consumers to seek indoor entertainment, and eventually they found a way to cope on their mobile phones – playing games and using other attractive applications, such as online video and social sharing platforms.

Among the most popular non game apps in the world, we see the expected evergreen products. Tiktok, youtube and Facebook still topped the list in terms of downloads, user spending and “Mau.”. At the same time, some interesting findings can be obtained by studying the ranking of breakthrough applications with the fastest quarter on quarter growth.
In terms of downloads and Mau, the privacy focused messaging app “signal” was the fastest growing app in the quarter, while the similar “television” ranked third and second in the two rankings, respectively. Another eye-catching breakthrough application is MX takatak, which meets the growing demand for user generated short video content in the Indian market. For local publishers in India, this is part of the current rapid growth trend. According to our estimate, it is the fastest growing app in the first quarter of 2021.
The total expenditure of game users reached 22 billion US dollars, setting a new record
As always, the data of the first quarter of 2021 proves that games are the most influential category in the whole application market. In this quarter, gamers downloaded about 1 billion games per week, and the total user spending in the game reached 22 billion US dollars. IOS ﹣ players spent the most in-game users, at US $13 billion (a year-on-year increase of US $30%), while users on Google play platform spent US $9 billion (a year-on-year increase of US $35%).

This is an increase of 15% from 2020 and 35% from the weekly average in the first quarter of 2019. The number of game downloads in Google play increased by 20% year-on-year to 11 billion.
The game with the highest download volume in the quarter was join clash 3D, a super leisure survival game of super sonic studio. It swapped places with “strong us!” which is currently second. As we continue to look down on the list, there are some notable rising stars.
Third, DOP 2: delete one part rose by 308 places. Saygame’s puzzle game is to let players slide part of the picture to see the hidden content. As the level of players increases, the difficulty of breaking through will also increase.
In fourth place is phone case DIY, which has risen at least 1052 places in the quarter. The app was developed by enter crikey in Australia and released by crazylabs. This is a super casual game, players can design their own mobile phone shell. Enter crikey discovered the trend of mobile design video on social media and developed the app.
Mau’s ranking is more stable. Compared with the previous quarter, the top six have not changed at all: strong us!, pubg mobile, candy legend, robox, free fire and call of Duty: mobile.
Although the top applications are relatively stable, there are still many well-known games that have made a huge leap in user spending and number of users. UMA Musume pretty derby is at the top of the “breakthrough” list of user spending. It is based on a very small but very successful comic series and animation programs in the main market of Japan. It was adapted into “IOS” and “Google play” mobile games in February 2021.
The biggest “breakthrough” game in the number of active users in this quarter is project makeover, which adds a new color to the leisure puzzle game. It combines the well-known connection elimination mechanism with the themes of fashion, makeup and home decoration, thus bringing rich diversity and helping to maintain players’ participation.
Finally, as we move towards the second quarter of 2021, mobile games will reach a new high. The epidemic has accelerated this growth. In 2020, the growth rate of game downloads is 2.5 times higher than that of all kinds of applications. In 2021, the user spending of mobile games is expected to reach 120 billion US dollars, which is 1.5 times that of all other forms of games.
