Three trends ride a new wave in China’s booming mobile app sector this June, according to the very first China App Index released by Wandoujia, one of China’s leading Android app stores. Photo-sharing apps based on WeChat, money-saving and mobile MMOs apps are the top three categories.

Baidu PhotoWonder and Crazy Guess Figure are two winners in the photo-sharing bandwagon. The monthly downloads of these two games amounted to 1.60 million and 2 million, respectively.
