SHAREit Group, a global technology company, has announced that its digital content sharing and streaming app SHAREit, has been ranked No.4 media source globally in volume and power rankings in non-gaming categories and No.7 in all categories on the In-App purchases (IAP) index, marking another growth milestone. It has also ranked at No.8 on the global retention index across all categories for driving huge volumes.
Besides these, SHAREit Group also jumped to higher rankings in gaming categories on the Retention and In-App purchases index globally.
The rankings are provided by AppsFlyer, a marketing measurement and experience platform, which released the 14th edition of its performance index, featuring the top media sources in mobile advertising.
The company has also developed a lighter version, SHAREit Lite, a peer-to-peer file transfer mobile app, allowing users to share files, pictures, music, and more, with other devices without using an active internet or Bluetooth connection. Being one of the first app channel partners of Google Play, it also ensures secure application transfers with Peer-to-Peer Offline App Sharing.
In the African market, SHAREit Lite has become the preferred peer-to-peer digital transfer app for the young demographic. In Nigeria for instance, Guardian reports that SHAREit Lite has notably enhanced the productivity of many young people in both the formal and informal sectors through easy file-sharing. Additionally, SHAREit Lite has taken its engagement with the young energetic population a notch higher through several offline initiatives, one of which is the SHAREit Lite campus storm, in partnership with Boomplay where students displayed their singing talents to win rewards.
Besides the high-speed file sharing feature, SHAREit Lite also helps its users to save memory space on their devices by eliminating the need to download other tool apps. The additional features of the app include Phone Cleaner, Phone Booster, Battery Saver, File Manager and Game Resource Files Transfer – all targeted to provide an optimized smartphone experience to the users.
It is therefore not surprising that SHAREit, has become a marketing platform of choice for mobile marketers as they look to drive quality users, and these rankings underscore the app’s role in growing the ecosystem.
