The latest data from mobile-tracking website AppAnnie show Amazon has snatched the number two slot from Paytm when it comes to mobile downloads of apps in December 2015. Flipkart, however, retained its top position. Snapdeal and Myntra retain their number four and five positions, the same as in September 2015, reports Hita Gupta in New Delhi.
While AppAnnie did not share actual mobile app downloads data for December, till September 2015 it had given a figure of 41.4 million for Flipkart versus half that at 20.2 million for Amazon, though the daily downloads had narrowed considerably — by September, the daily downloads of the Amazon app were just 8,000 or so less than those of Flipkart. In September, Flipkart was clocking daily downloads of 66,500 apps versus 58,800 for Amazon.
But data for website traffic tell a different story, one of Amazon beating Flipkart. In a mail put out by Amazon, citing comScore data, the company showed its India operations getting 30 million unique visitors in October.
That compares with 27-28 million for Flipkart, 21 million for Jabong and 17-18 million for Snapdeal. Citing this data, Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos had said, “Just two and a half years from our launch, Amazon.in has become the most visited e-commerce site in India.”
