Top 10 personal finance apps in Google Play and Apple Store in August

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 almost invariably 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.

August reveals some trends that point to a specific user behavior, in particular combined with those seen in the previous month's top 10.

Android users have once again awarded the month's top 10 to apps developed by banks. Thus, even though mobile banking is still incipient in Spain, we can see that in this segment of the apps market, banks have done their work and have been the first ones to adapt to the winds of change blowing from other points on the planet.

However, we find two exceptions to this widespread domination by banking institutions. PayPal and Fintonic appear regularly in the ranking and have consolidated their position as major actors in the field of technology finance independent of banks. This is the case to the point that customized finance management apps rank first in the store selling applications for iOS devices.
