Popular video-sharing service TikTok and battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (or PUBG Mobile) are the top-grossing app and game respectively in the world for Q3 2021, according to data published by analytics firm Sensor Tower in its latest report. Spending on apps has increased year-over-year, and these apps saw an increase in revenue collected in Q3. It is worth noting that both TikTok and PUBG Mobile remain banned in the country, along with a number of other apps that were removed from the Play Store and Apple App Store in the country last year over security concerns.

According to the report by Sensor Tower, which tracked spending in apps over the third quarter, TikTok saw an increase of 41 percent year-on-year this quarter, while PUBG Mobile grew 11 percent year-on-year. The spending on premium apps, subscriptions and in-app purchases doesn't end there, however. The Google Play Store and Apple App Store together saw spending grow over 15 percent year-on-year to a whopping $33.6 billion. Both the App Store (13.2 percent) and the Play Store (18.6 percent) saw an increase in spending, even though spending on iOS was higher at $21.5 billion compared to Android at $12.1 billion, according to the report.
