Globally, TikTok became just the fifth app to reach lifetime downloads of over 3.5 billion for the first quarter of 2022, becoming the most downloaded app worldwide. It is owned by Meta, as are the four other apps that reached this milestone. TikTok has been installed on devices more than any other app since the beginning of 2018.
On the Android platform, Instagram was the second most downloaded application during the period, followed by TikTok. In third place was Facebook, while in fourth place was WhatsApp. The top four apps that Meta grabbed were Facebook, Facebook, and WhatsApp. Installs on Instagram were down 7% on a quarter-over-quarter basis in the first quarter of this year. However, it was the app's second-best quarter in four years.

It hasn't changed over the past three quarters which are the top five apps downloaded from the App Store. The app topped 70 million app store installations during the first quarter for the third time as a sequential 11% increase in Asian App Store installations led to TikTok's lead. After YouTube, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook finished second and third, respectively.

Despite its poor performance on the App Store, CapCut had its best quarter ever with more than 30 million downloads. With over 100 million downloads in the last five quarters, it is created by ByteDance, the same company that developed TikTok. The remaining ten apps list includes Gmail (10), WeChat (9), Google Maps (8), and Messenger (7).

For the first quarter on the Google Play Store, it's likely to be TikTok that's the most installed application. But that's not true. In fact, the most installed application on Google Play is Instagram, followed by Facebook. Third place went to TikTok.

Shopee set a company record with 96 million installations, creating an increase of 18% in the first quarter of 2022. They are top in Southeast Asia and Taiwan for this category of shopping platform. Following WhatsApp and Telegram, Snapchat, Messenger, and WhatsApp Business round out the top ten most downloaded apps from the Google Play Store.

HBO Max fared well in the States, placing fifth for new downloads in the quarterly report. HBO Max did so well because Americans are interested in streaming video entertainment. Additionally, YouTube ranked second, Disney+ ranked seventh, and Netflix ranked tenth in the top 20 streaming video apps for the first quarter. Hulu was ranked 18th, and Peacock was 12th. As of the first quarter of this year, only Netflix (16) and YouTube (11) were in the top 20 app downloads in Europe.

First-quarter downloads of Wordle were highest in the U.S.

The top 20 Asian apps were all streaming entertainment. Are games on the list? As of December 2010, Garena Free Fire led the top 20 games worldwide, with Subway Surfers coming in second and Merge Master coming in third. The fourteenth place went to Roblox, and the fifth went to Candy Crush Saga. On the list of top ten games, PUBG Mobile placed sixth and Ludo King ranked seventh. Count Masters (10th) and Race Master 3D (8th) round out the top ten.

According to the App Store, Wordle was the top game downloaded in the first quarter of 2022 in the United States overall. In the end, The New York Times bought the game for over $1 million dollars out of nowhere. Players have six chances to guess a five-letter word in Wordle. The player can rule out letters that have already been guessed, even when letters are duplicated.

Every day, Wordle offers a new game, and the ability to automatically share scores with friends and family adds to its appeal. It is surprising that the game includes strategy, and it appears that it will last. Wordle will not be a part of the Times's Games Subscription bundle for now, but the paper may eventually add it.

The Google Play Store list of the top 20 most installed apps in the U.S. did not include Wordle. In Q1 2022, Count Masters was the most-installed game for that platform.

Meta ranked as the top publisher for the first quarter of 2022 globally thanks to apps such as Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Messenger. Google came in second.

During the first quarter, total apps installed (App Store and Play Store combined) were 36.9 billion, up from 36.4 billion in the year-ago period. Overall app installations increased by 1.4%. Apple Store downloads in Q1 amounted to 8.6 billion, up from 8.4 billion and up 2.4% from Q1 of 2021. The number of apps downloaded from the Google Play Store worldwide during Q1 of this year rose to 28.3 billion, a 1.1% increase over Q1 of 2021 when 28 billion apps were installed.
