One of the interesting side effects of the cloud computing revolution: We now have all kinds of new ways to discover which apps people are using for work.
That’s why Zapier was able to create this list of the fastest-growing apps in 2016, according to its network.
Zapier is like an IFTTT for business apps. It lets people connect their work apps together to tasks and automatically move data between them. It boasts 1.5 million registered users who have hooked up over 750 business apps.
By looking at which apps are used the most all day on its network, Zapier determined which apps were rising in popularity.
It divided its analysis into two parts: the fastest-growing established apps and the fastest-growing new apps, which doesn’t necessarily mean new-to-market apps, but those that are new the Zapier network.
