Pokémon GO is Now The Biggest Mobile Game in the US



Pokémon GO is taking over the world, and now we know how big it really is in the US and it’s leaving other mobile apps in its dust.

SimilarWeb has run the numbers, and they’re pretty impressive compared to some of the more popular apps out there:

  • Pokémon GO has more Daily Active Users than Twitter, Netflix, Pandora, and Spotify. It’s closing in on Snapchat and Whatsapp as well.
  • While total installs of the game hasn’t surpassed many of those apps, the game has been installed more times than Candy Crush Saga making it the most popular mobile game ever in the US.

This is just after one week. It still remains to be seen if Pokémon GO is just going to be a fad, or if people will stick around after the cool newness wears off. If Niantic can update the game and add things like battles and trading, it’ll add a lot of replay-ability and life to it…
