ShareIT, Xender and UC Browser are the most used Android apps by Indian users, according to Jana, maker of app-marketing platform mCent.
The statistics are based on analysis of data usage from an 8 percent sampling of Indian Android phones on which mCent was installed.
The study talks about the behavioural trends of Indian users. For instance, they are heavy users of file share software. File sharing tools are the most popular category of apps after communication apps like UC Browser and WhatsApp, followed by entertainment, social media and shopping.
It’s interesting to note that UC Browser, which got pulled up for leaking data to third parties is one of the most heavily used apps in India.
A previous study carried earlier this month that analysed top 25 installed apps by downloads revealed that 30 percent of the apps were developed by Indian companies, with only one game - Candy Crush Saga making it to the list.
