The shortest month of the year is over and we now present the globally top performing apps of February 2014. In this blog post we highlight the leading free, paid, and grossing apps for the Apple App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore. The charts in this blog post are based on Distimo AppIQ data, covering the full month of February 2014 on a globally aggregated level.
Top Free Apps
February – or the month of flappy birds & friends brought many new apps to the top of the global iOS charts. Flappy Bird took the Apple App Store charts by storm, as we reported in early February. Even though creator Dong Nguyen removed the app from the store on February 9th, the generated download volume was still large enough to conquer free rank number two for the complete month of February globally. This performance was only topped by one of many similar ‘flappy bird clones’, even though this game features a fish: Splashy Fish – The Adventure of a Tiny Bird Fish.
Rank three was taken by another flappy bird offspring in a mask and a cape: Ironpants. Released on February 11th, Ironpants scored almost a similar download volume as the original Flappy Bird game did within the first 9 days of February.
All three top apps have a further point in common; after the United States, most of their downloads were generated in China.
Unroll Me – unblock the slots, a non flappy app was following close on rank four and YouTube was found on rank five giving room to all these newer apps, after it had been leading the free charts in January 2014.
