Apptopia provides competitive intelligence for the mobile app economy. Apptopia was founded on the belief that the mobile app community requires transparency to level the playing field and make way for innovation and industry advancements. Mobile publishers and developers, service providers, and investors use Apptopia on a daily basis to understand and monitor competitors, inform business strategies, and identify emerging consumer interests and trends.

In this report, Aptopia analyzed the Health & Fitness app category, as a whole, across the iOS and Google Play stores. They compared the category’s overall performance in H1 2020 to previous years, evaluating total net new installs and in-app purchase revenue. Apptopia then created custom groupings of fitness apps based on their ability to offer video workouts or video guidance. These groupings were analyzed by net new installs, daily active users, and IAP revenue estimates.
