๐Ÿ“ฒ Top Non-Game Apps Worldwide for May 2019 by Downloads

The most downloaded non-game app worldwide for May 2019 was #WhatsApp with more than 64.7 million installs.

#FacebookMessenger was the second most installed non-game app worldwide last month with more than 60.7 million downloads. #Facebook, #TikTok, and #Snapchat made up the rest of the top five most installed non-game apps last month.

Snapchatโ€™s dramatic ranking increase in May came as the result of a popular new gender swap filter added mid-month. The appโ€™s first-time installs increased 2.5x month-over-month from 16.8 million in April to 41.5 million last month, bringing it into the top 10 for overall downloads at No. 5 and making it the most downloaded app on the App Store. It had ranked No. 11 overall and No. 13 on the App Store in April.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ“ฑ Email & Mobile Notifications in Driving Loyalty

Generating more direct traffic to websites and apps is an important priority for publishers, with #email #newsletters a particularly favoured tactic for retaining subscribers but also for attracting new users. The Washington Post operates around 70 different newsletters & has found that recipients consume around three times as much content as those who donโ€™t use email news. RIโ€™s own data this year show that 42% of US digital subscribers have used one or more email newsletters in the last week compared with 35% in the UK but just 17% in Norway and 19% in Sweden. It is clear this is one area where Nordic publishers could learn a few tricks from the United States.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ’ฐ Libra: Facebook confirms its cryptocurrency launching in 2020

#Libra is designed not to be a speculative asset, like #Bitcoin, but a form of digital money backed by a reserve of assets.

The company has formed the nonprofit Libra Association with 27 other partners to oversee Libra and its development. The partnership includes venture capital firms, nonprofit organizations, #cryptocurrency firms, and massive corporate financial, telecommunications, and technology service providers, including #Coinbase, #Mastercard, #Visa, #eBay, #PayPal, #Stripe, #Spotify, #Uber, #Lyft, and #Vodafone.

While the Libra Association will have members based globally, it will be headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ

Facebook has a business incentive to build on top of the Libra #blockchain, and itโ€™s launching its own subsidiary to do just that called #Calibra (see the GIF below - Credit: Facebook). According to Kevin Weil, Facebook's VP of Product, Calibra will live inside of Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp at launch, but will also have a standalone iOS and Android app.

๐Ÿ“‰ Facebook Employees are NOT as Happy with Mark Zuckerberg as They Used to Be

#Facebook employees have long been known for their fierce loyalty to the company and its founder Mark Zuckerberg. In the aftermath of numerous privacy debacles, including ones in which Facebook has exposed usersโ€™ personal information and facilitated attempts to undermine American democracy, that enthusiasm seems to have flagged.

The Facebook CEO saw his ranking among top US CEOs plummet this year, from No. 16 in 2018 to No. 55 this year, though he does have an approval rating of 94 percent, according to new data from Glassdoor, a site where employees can anonymously rate their jobs and their CEOs. His approval rating was 96 percent last year.

๐Ÿ“ฑ For App Makers: Apple's App Store vs Google Play

Despite the fact that the installed base of #Android devices is significantly larger than it is for #iOS devices, app publishers still seem to find larger earnings potential on #Appleโ€™s #AppStore compared to #GooglePlay.

According to Sensor Towerโ€™s estimates, the top 100 iOS app publishers made $84 million on average in Q1 2019, compared to $51 million for the most successful Android app makers. The difference between the two platforms is even more pronounced when excluding games publishers. The highest-grossing non-gaming app publishers for iOS outperformed the top 100 on Googleโ€™s Play Store by 232 percent.
