Mobile banking apps tend to head the ranking in the two largest app distribution platforms. Even so, the list always brings a few surprises.

The mobile versions of different banks are nearly always the most popular apps in the Finance category in stores like Google Play and App Store, but there are always conclusions to be drawn from the ranking of other types of applications –whether of a corporate type or not– which help shed light on the demands of digital users in terms of their finances.

July reveals two significant trends that point to a joint theme with the tendency seen in last month's top 10.

Users of devices with an iOS operating system show us a very different user profile from those using Android hardware. This month is particularly important given the difference between the two classifications in terms of content. While the recurrent Plus500 and Infobolsa reappear in the App Store, and Fintonic persists as the preferred option for managing personal finance, in Google Play the predominant applications are more innovative in pragmatic ways, such as digital wallets. and P2P payment apps.

Finally, the entrance of Orange Cash in the rankings is worth noting. The Orange and VISA app permits contactless payments using NFC technology, combining this with both more common functionality (bank balance query) and less common (phone top-up).
