Roundup of the Top Mobile Apps for May 2013

App Analytics company, Distimo release its monthly roundup of mobile app download and revenue data today. It appears that there hasn’t been any major shake ups since last month, as most of the tops slots in are occupied with familiar names. Puzzle & Dragons and Candy Crush Saga are still candy crushing it across the board. Whatsapp Messenger and Swiftkey are the top paid apps in the App store and Google Play, respectively.

From Distimo:

The WhatsApp Messenger application remains the most popular paid application in the Apple App Store. The following leading positions continue to have a strong presence in the game category. Along with this, we can welcome Heads Up! by Warner Bros. as a new top game ranked on 2.
While Minecraft holds its position on rank 3, Survivalcraft, a new published game in this category, follows on rank 4 about one month after the initial release in May.

All top 5 Google Play paid applications listed have been the same since March, but the order has changed once again. Swift Key Keyboard continues to lead the ranking followed by Titanium Backup PRO Key root on rank 2. The Music application Poweramp reconquers its previous position on rank 3 above the Nova Launcher on rank 4 and Minecraft – the only game – is found on rank 5 in May.

The top revenue generating app on both Google Play and the app store last month was GungHo Entertainment’s Puzzle & Dragons. Candy Crush Saga topped the downloads on iOS, while the new Facebook update was the most downloaded on Android devices.
