How many of these popular Indian apps do you have on your smartphone?

India is one of the fastest-growing tech-savvy countries in the world. And when it comes to technical competence, the first thing which comes to is smartphones and apps. We have almost 100 million consumers who’re using mobile applications. With such a large number of users, it’s a vast market for Indian app creators who’ve left no stone unturned to introduce mobile applications for every possible purpose.

According to recent research conducted on Android’s Google Play Store, there are around 151,671 apps from Indian publishers out of the overall 2,758,476 apps. Well, that’s some number. Also, after the COVID-19 pandemic started spreading its wings, we started staying indoors and became self-reliant. And with that, we turned to apps for food delivery, e-commerce apps, and more.

Therefore, on a journey ahead of this new revolution of ‘vocal for local’, we have comprised a few popular Indian apps that aren’t just useful but also highly rated among users.
