The fastest cross-platform app, SHAREit, now becomes one of the top downloaded apps in the country, and overtakes Instagram.

The app is well known among users for allowing you to transfer video, music, files, and even apps from one device to another. It is cross-platform which means you can share files between Android, iOS, PC, Mac. It is also one-stop content app, with free online feeds including movies, music, wallpapers, and/or GIFs. The app is now ranked the eight most downloaded mobile application in the Philippines and sixth by monthly active users.

The ranking was provided by “AppAnnie’s The State of Mobile 2021 Report”. Back in 2020, the app was also recognized as the world’s fastest-growing media-publisher. It ranked number 1 in the H1 2020 Edition XI of AppsFlyer Performance Index. Between January and June 2020, the platform recorded a growth rate of 160% in in-app installs.

Exceptional Growth

As people adapt to digital transformation during the pandemic, there is an increased demand for digital content and entertainment. And with the switch to online learning and the increased reliance on digital platforms, there is also a need for a fast cross-platform file transfer app.

The app has experienced exceptional growth here in the Philippines. It has seen a 15% month on month increase in daily active users since lockdown began last March 2020. Now it has close to 40 million monthly active users in the PH, surpassing leading apps like Viber and Spotify.

Philippine Expansion

To leverage the potential offered by this vibrant digital market, the company has set up a local office in Manila with a full tram spearheaded by its regional lead, Lisa Dominguez. SHAREit’s Philippine team is focused on driving growth for local businesses and allowing brands to capitalize on SHAREit’s massive reach.

Fintech app, GCash, and social livestreaming platform, Kumu, have already benefited from partnering with SHAREit. The app has helped GCash onboard new users nationwide, while it also increased visibility and user engagement for Kumu.

“We are very excited about SHAREit’s growth in the Philippines. Our local team is keen to build on this success and establish an even greater presence as the country rides this wave of digital transformation and increased connectivity. Our plans now are to continue to refine the app’s user experience, and to invest in solutions that help local brands scale their user base and digital reach through exposure on the SHAREit app,”

said Dominguez.

As the whole country emerges from the economic and social effects of the pandemic, SHAREit will focus on meeting its users’ content discovery and sharing needs. It will enable it to continue its remarkable growth as it looks forward to helping its Philippine users and local partners alike to adapt and thrive in this new digital landscape.
