Video sharing app from China, TikTok, which is also quite popular in Indonesia, has become the most downloaded app on iOS during the I / 2019 quarter. While the WhatsApp instant messaging application is the most downloaded on Android.

Based on the latest report released by Sensor Tower, for five consecutive quarters, TikTok has become the most downloaded app on iOS. The number of downloads of TikTok in the App Store reaches 33 million from January to March 2019. The second most popular app is YouTube, followed by Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger which complements the top five apps on iOS.

While on the Android, WhatsApp is at the top. The Facebook's instant messaging app was downloaded 199 million times during the first quarter of 2019. The next most popular apps in a row are Messenger, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram.

Despite being in third place, TikTok has been accused of 88.6 million new users on the Android platform. This figure increased 8.2 times compared to the same period last year. The work of TikTok was not smooth in India. As in Indonesia, the application was blocked by the local government due to illegal content containing pornography, last April. Quoted from TechCrunch, the blocking of TikTok in India has been revoked since May 20.

The Tower Sensor also highlights new apps that attract the attention of smart phone users, one of which is YouTube Kids. The number of downloads increased by 291% per quarter, with downloads totalling 29 million times on Play Store.
