We've released our Data Digest for the fourth quarter and full year of 2019—an expansive, free report covering global trends in the mobile app ecosystem utilizing Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data.

For the first time in five years, Google has unseated Facebook as the top publisher of mobile apps, as it and other companies ride the wave of downloads coming from emerging mobile-forward markets including India and Brazil. Which countries are ramping up their mobile engagement, and how are they contributing to the success of top mobile companies? Our report explores this and more.

Plus, we break down the unprecedented success of Disney+, the dominance of Call of Duty's pivot to mobile, and TikTok's role as the buzziest social media platform of 2019.
