Here are the ones I use at least once a day: snapchat, instagram, google maps, citibike, instagram, twitter, calculator, google, weather channel, lose it, facebook, calendar and notes. Only 6 of my favorites are in the top 15.
Popular apps that are not on my go-to list include: whatsapp, messenger, youtube, uber (unless I’m traveling), Spotify, Netflix, Pinterest, Pandora and Airbnb.
Per Recode, the mobile app boom is over:
- The average American smartphone user downloads zero apps per month.
- In May, the top 15 app publishers saw downloads drop an average of 20% in the U.S.
There are a few notable exceptions:
- Snapchat (up 109% and now eclipsing facebook in downloads).
- Uber (up 108%).
- Also growing, but off a much smaller base, HBO Now (up 82%) and Pinterest (up 20%).
