In addition to leading the overall results, TikTok also ranks first in the list of most downloaded apps from the App Store and Google Play Store. The ranking is completed with names already established among Brazilians, such as the video editing tool Likee, the social network Snapchat and the video app YouTube.
However, in the individual lists, two less well-known titles stand out. the case of Kuaishou, a Chinese video app that appears in the top of the App Store ranking, and UC Browser. The browser also occupies the tenth position, but in the list of the most downloaded apps by users of the Google Play Store.
