In addition, the Trustdata list is divided into several categories, such as games, finance, social networking, stranger networking, e-commerce, etc. In the games category, there are 11 known apps in the social networking category.
The 11 known games in the Games category all saw varying degrees of growth, as did the 6 eCommerce games and 6 mobile reading games.
According to Trustdata, the list is based on Chinese mobile Internet users, and is calculated by collecting some samples multiple times under the bright screen and by building a data model.
Currently, Trustdata only has samples from the Android user base to collect, so the data may not represent all iOS users.
