The numbers are in and the trends are clear. This year has marked the inauguration of smartphones and tablets as the reining gaming platforms. In fact some 88% of traffic on Uptodown this year has been in Android downloads – up 10 percentage points from last year – with 1.3 billion downloads just for that operating system. We’ve now compiled all our data and put together a ranking of the most successful games of the year, including the top 10 most downloaded titles as well as the top 3 in each genre.
According to App Annie, global app downloads are expected to hit 284 billion by 2020, more than doubling 2015’s figures. What role will Android blogs play in this market growth? In Uptodown’s previous post, we explained our vision for a more unified Android industry, where independent publishers and APK repositories work together to help people discover, and download apps without barriers. Below we highlight some of the top Android blogs that always help us to stay up-to-date.
