These were the most popular apps of 2021 in the Netherlands


CoronaCheck as most popular app

December is the month of lists and Apple is responding to this with the Apple App Awards 2021 and the announcement of the most popular apps per country. Earlier we already let you know what the most popular apps have been in the US, but it is of course more interesting which apps were popular in the Netherlands. The number 1 is not entirely surprising: CoronaCheck, the app you need to enter all kinds of places. The number two is also a ‘mandatory number’: with DigiD you can log in to government sites and to all kinds of services.

Many mandatory numbers
We also see with the iPad apps that people mainly use it to make video calls and to watch streaming video. With Netflix, YouTube, Videoland, Disney+ and Ziggo GO, the video apps are well represented. In terms of video calling, Zoom and Microsoft Teams proved popular. The only question is whether users downloaded this app on their own initiative, or whether they simply needed the app to consult with colleagues.

A non-mandatory app that did not make the top 10 is the controversial CoronaMelder app that has been in the spotlight quite a bit over the course of 2021. This app is arguably the most talked about app, but it didn't lead to a hit on the App Store. With paid apps, prospective parents appear to be fanatically looking for apps. For years now, two Dutch apps have been at the top of the top 10. People also seem to have money to spare for measuring sleep, weather forecasts and mountain bike routes.

Do you live in Belgium? Then you can see your national list by opening the App Store app and looking at the home screen. There you will find great promos for both lists: apps and games.
