In the January-May period of 2021, the 10 most downloaded applications from the App Store and Google Play have been announced. Accordingly, the most downloaded mobile application of the last 5 months was TikTok.

The most downloaded apps on Android and iOS in the first 5 months of 2021, which covers a period when we were generally closed to homes due to coronavirus, were announced. We see that social media and communication applications, which have experienced a great explosion in the number of downloads with the effect of the pandemic period, continue to rise in the first 5 months of 2021 in the same way. The most downloaded application by Android and iOS users in the last 5 months was TikTok, China’s rising social media platform. 

In the list, which we saw that the USA failed in its efforts to stop the rise of TikTok, the second most downloaded application was Facebook, while Instagram took third place. This trio is followed by WhatsApp, which is frequently discussed in Turkey with the data it wants. When we look at this ranking, we see that 3 of the 4 most downloaded applications in the last 5 months belong to Facebook. When we look at the full list of 10 applications, we again see social media platforms and messaging applications. The 10 most downloaded apps in the last 5 months on Google Play and App Store are as follows:
