The Most Popular App In The US Revealed

SurveyMonkey has revealed the 30 most downloaded and used apps in the US so far this year, with Facebook's Messenger leading the way. Social media apps came in as the top four most downloaded apps, with the twelve most used apps all being owned by either Facebook, Apple or Google. It was also revealed that there was very little correlation between the most downloaded apps and the most used apps. The report said that “40 percent of the most-used apps come pre-loaded on the operating system, highlighting the importance of Android and iOS to Google and Apple”, adding that this gave insight into Facebook's desire to “control this deeper layer of the stack”.
