Top Shopping Apps in 2022

As of December 2022, the list of the most popular mobile apps for iPhones on the iOS app store was topped by Temu, an online marketplace owned and operated by Chinese ecommerce giant Pinduoduo. Even though the app was launched only recently in September, it has shot to the top of the rankings, which experts attribute to its low prices. Shop, ecommerce platform Shopify’s shopping assistant app, follows in second place.

Bath & Body Works’s shopping app comes next in third place on the list of the best shopping apps, while retail giants Amazon Shopping and Walmart make up the five most popular shopping apps.

  1. Nike
