TikTok was the highest-earning app in the US last month, generating a net revenue of $64 million on the App Store and Google Play, according to new data released by AppFigures.

YouTube ranked second with a net revenue of $58 million. 

When users aren’t shooting or sharing videos they appear to be busy chatting on dating apps with Tinder generating revenues of $49 million in January 2022 alone. 

Bumble also featured in the top 10 apps for revenue at $29 million. 

Entertainment apps HBO Max, Disney+, Pandora and Hulu were prominent in the ranking.
