Leboncoin earned the No. 1 ranking in the Publisher Trust Index for Google Play Store in May 2021 in EMEA. The French shopping app presented exceptional versatility by scoring more than 90 in all measured metrics, including Popularity, Engagement, Ad Density, Invalid Traffic (Ad Fraud). Along with June’s Journey, the top app from the Apple App Store EMEA ranking, they are the only apps obtaining this achievement among the top 10.

Other top mobile apps in May 2021

Fake Chat Maker ranked No. 3 among Google Play Store apps in May, while InShot: Video Editor checked in at No. 2 among Apple App Store apps. MyFitnessPal and Words With Friends 2 also ranked in the top 10 among apps on the Apple App Store.

In both mobile EMEA rankings (Google and Apple), there are quality apps from a range of different areas. The most represented category is Video Gaming (e.g., Craftsman, Picture Cross), but there are six others, including Technology & Computing (Truecaller), Healthy Living (MyFitnessPal), and Hobbies & Interest (Photo Collage - Collageable). Interestingly, none of the apps reached the top 10 of both Apple and Google rankings.

The content of this blog, and the Publisher Trust Indexes (collectively, the “Indexes”), reflect Pixalate’s opinions with respect to factors that Pixalate believes may be useful to the digital media industry. The Indexes examine programmatic advertising activity on mobile apps and Connected TV (CTV) apps (collectively, the “apps”). As cited in the Indexes and referenced in the Indexes’ key findings reproduced herein, the ratings and rankings in the Indexes are based on a number of metrics (e.g., “Brand Safety”) and Pixalate’s opinions regarding the relative performance of each app publisher with respect to the metrics. The data is derived from buy-side, predominantly open auction, programmatic advertising transactions, as measured by Pixalate. The Indexes examine global advertising activity across North America, EMEA, APAC, and LATAM, respectively, as well as programmatic advertising activity within discrete app categories. Any insights shared are grounded in Pixalate’s proprietary technology and analytics, which Pixalate is continuously evaluating and updating.
