Everyday, thousands of apps are added to Google Play store and the Apple’s app store. Now more than ever, 2020 has seen an increase in the usage of apps as more people relied on their smartphones and apps to keep them entertained and connected with their loved ones.

The year 2020 saw apps being rebranded and modified to try to keep up with the ever-changing world of technology. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic shifted gears and people started to spend more time on their apps due to the lockdowns that were happening around the world as the government tried to contain the spread of the disease.

According to the latest report from App Annie, daily time spent in apps on Android devices increased 20% year-over-year in Q1 2020, while consumer spending in both iOS and Android apps was also up 15% and 5% respectively, setting a new record for in-app spending for a single quarter at $23.4 billion worldwide.
