  • Although this data might be true, but Whichapp will provide data only for Android app. Which app cannot pull out the data from iOS users as they do not have iOS app.

  • These stats show that the young India is now concentrating in building their own venture rather than working for someone else. These things have led to increase in Indian economy. Very nice information. Thanks for sharing.

  • Incomplete and incompetent data again. When a company doesn’t even recognize an app, they will not even list in their graphs. QuackQuack added 600,000 users alone in 2015, with 400,000 app installs and did a revenue of INR 2.0 Cr and all you show is iCrushiFlush and Matchify in the list. Seems like the only recognition one needs is funding to be even know to such surveyors!
