The Chase Mobile app and Credit Karma app top this week’s list of finance apps, with Credit Karma dominating Google Play and Chase continuing its iOS reign.

But the surprise of the week may be be that PayPal Holdings owns two apps in the Top 10 on both platforms. Venmo is 3rd and Paypal 4th on iOS, and PayPal is 2nd on Android while Venmo is 7th.

Chase and Credit Karma, those two giants-among-apps, have been vying for the top spot in each platform week by week, only overtaken in brief surges by apps like Venmo, which shows that people really like emojis, even in finance.

In other news, Android Pay is in the Top 20 this week on Google Play (obviously) in the twentieth space. Simple is not in the Top 20 for either platform (93rd on OS and 66th on Google Play) despite its new shared accounts feature Simple Shared—though that just rolled out today, so give it time.

With this new feature, Simple users can reportedly keep their own personal accounts, but switch over to shared accounts with roommates, significant others, or anyone else when they need to combine money. Users can also switch between personal and shared accounts on the app interface with one tap, making it easy to track the balance in each—or use the other features Simple offers, like setting savings goals or paying bills.
