Is there something wrong with my browser or were there just three sets of numbers on that blog post? How about most downloaded apk and many other interesting numbers?
For privacy reasons, F-Droid does not count or even log APK downloads. The best they can do is count listings, lest they risk storing user data. As both a user and an author of an actively maintained app on there, I am okay with the tradeoff.
Not just you. I’m also curious about which particular apps are popular, not just the categories.
