Weekly UK App Store charts: New games flood the download charts but Figdet Spinner remains top dog

Each week app market intelligence firm Reflection, in partnership with Ukie, publish the top grossing and most downloaded games from the App Store.

So we’re sharing that data each week to give you an insight into how the UK mobile games market is evolving on the App Store.

Spinning out

No surprises for the most downloaded iPhone game for the week from May 22nd to 28th - once again it was a fidget spinner-based game, with Ketchapp retaining its top spot with the aptly renamed Fidget Spinner.

But a number of non-fidget spinner challengers to the throne emerged for the week as other titles have fallen away, including Voodoo's Balls VS Blocks in second, Fanatee's Stop - Fun Categories Word Game in third and The Pokemon Company's Pokemon: Magikarp Jump splashing into sixth.

In the paid iPhone charts, Mojang's Minecraft: Pocket Edition slipped to third, with ndemic's Plague Inc and Warner Bros' Heads Up! taking first and second spot.

The top grossing charts are as expected, with IGG's Lords Mobile sneaking into 10th on iPhone and Big Fish Games' Gummy Drop! taking 10th spot on iPad.
