The last place in the ranking is occupied by the Hulu application, which collected $ 132.6 million in 2018. This is another streaming video service that broadcasts series and TV shows of such well-known TV companies as Fox, NBC, ABC and many others.
The ninth place is the QQ application ("Peek-a-boo"), an analogue of the familiar and long-forgotten "ICQ". In China, QQ is considered the most popular messenger for exchanging personal messages, although some users dislike it for the abundance of advertising.
And even this fact did not prevent "Peek-a-boo" from earning almost $ 160 million last year.
The eighth place in the rating is occupied by the popular video service Youku in China (does it really remind you of something?). The Youku app and the website of the same name are the largest in the country by the number of visits. Thanks to this, in 2018, software developers received $ 192.9 million in profit. By the way, the rights to the video portal belong to Alibaba Grour Corporation.
Pandora is a popular streaming service that allows you to listen to your favorite music online. Sirius XM recently bought the app ownership rights. And this, apparently, was a very correct decision, because in 2018 Pandora managed to earn $ 225.7 million.
Yes, yes, this is the same YouTube that you watch every day on your lunch break. Over the past 12 months, the developers of the application (who does not know, the service belongs to the world-famous Google corporation) have earned $ 244.2 million.
And China again! Although this application is popular in different countries of the world. Its meaning is to create funny videos and send them to your friends.
It would seem that such a "banality", but it was she who brought $ 264 million to her developers in 2018. There is a reason to think!
In fourth place is another streaming video service, which collected $ 420.5 million in revenue from iOS users last year. We are talking about the Chinese application iQiyi. By the way, there is a website of the same name, one of the largest in the world.
In third place in terms of profitability was Tinder, a popular online dating app. In 2018, the service earned 462.2 million dollars. By the way, Tinder is in demand not only abroad, but also in Russia. On the Internet, you can find a lot of stories related to dating on this service.
And we recently told you what types of men are most often found on Tinder, and this is the bitterest truth…
Another popular application for watching streaming videos. This time adapted for an audience from China.
The Tencent Video program has brought its developers almost $ 500 million over the past year. And again, only iPhone users count, although there are not so many of them in China, as you know. It is believed that only the poor buy Apple devices here…
The first place in the ranking of the most profitable iOS apps in 2018 was taken by the Netflix video service, which brought developers more than $ 790 million. And we are talking only about iPhone users!
With the help of the Netflix online cinema, everyone can watch their favorite series and TV shows directly on the screens of gadgets or broadcast them to a TV and computer. The subscription price for the service starts from $ 8 per month. For this money, users will have access to all videos as SD.
