According to data from Sensor Tower, the top downloaded music app in Canada last year was Spotify:
Spotify was the most downloaded Music app in Canada for 2018 with close to four million installs. The full top 10 ranking of Music apps in Canada by downloads for 2018 is above. App download estimates are from Sensor Tower’s Store Intelligence platform.
In second place was YouTube Music, followed by Shazam in third and SoundCloud in fourth. iHeartRadio was fifth and Amazon Music was in sixth place.
Sensor Tower says data estimates “include downloads for the App Store and Google Play in Canada between Jan. 1, 2018 and Dec. 31, 2018.”
Apple Music and other Apple apps preinstalled, along with those from Google, were excluded from the data, as the study only looks at unique installs.
Spotify has recently been embroiled with a war of words with Apple, accusing the iPhone maker of being a “monopolist”.
Apple responded to accusations by saying it has dedicated huge resources and platform for app developers, while “Spotify is asking to keep all those benefits while also retaining 100 percent of the revenue.”
