Snapchat’s Bitmoji has dethroned Facebook and Google from the top of the app download charts in a sign of resurgence at the young upstart following its initial public offering in March.

The personal emoji app, bought by Snapchat parent Snap last year, is now riding high in the top ten download charts in eight of the world’s top ten app markets – including the coveted top spot in the US, UK, France, Canada & Australia.

The rankings come courtesy of App Annie and is based on iOS downloads from 1 Jan to 29 March 2017, excluding download data from Android apps as these come with Google apps pre-installed.

As well as making for good reading for Snapchat the figures also gave some cheer to Uber, which made the top 10 lists in the US, Brazil and Australia, for the first time this year despite ongoing controversies engulfing the business.

It remains some way adrift of the app holy trinity of Facebook, Google and Snapchat however.

Snapchat added Bitmoji personalisation to its main app last July.
