About This Data

This data was scraped from the google play store, and became available here. The data consists of over 2.3 million apps within the app store. The data includes name, App ID, category, rating, number of installs, rating count, price, size, release date, and SO much more. With this information, we can have a much better understanding of what apps succeed and why. We can also look at how people choose to spend their time and money, and what type of apps people enjoy more than others.

Things to try in the data set:

Group Data

Roll data up into groups of values within a column to look for trends. Place groups inside of groups to drill down another level, then group again!

Filter Data

Use the filters to narrow down the file to the values that interest you most. Only show values that include, exclude, contain, or are greater than a value (to name a few). Then add another level of filtering with AND / OR logic to dive deeper.

Search Data

Not sure where to start? Use search to find values in the file and then go back and filter or group the entire data set down to just that value.

Key Insights


On average, Americans spend around 5 and a half hours on their phones every day. This is about ⅓ of the hours spent awake. Understanding why people spend so much time on their devices, and what they are doing, could be extremely helpful and interesting. Not only is this information extremely useful to those looking to create the next big app, it is also insightful for us regular foke to understand what applications are controlling so much of our time. To further explore this, we have provided the internet with a massive google play store dataset. Google Play, also branded as the Google Play Store and formerly Android Market, is a digital distribution service operated and developed by Google. Not only does the Google Play Store contain apps, it also distributes music, movies, books, and games.
