App Annie, an app analytics company, recently revealed October’s 10 most downloaded iPhone apps in the US.
We chose not to include Apple’s own apps, like iMovie and Pages, in the list, as it wouldn’t be an accurate representation of the most downloaded apps. The reason those apps are usually the majority of the top 10 is because when you buy a new iPhone, you get Apple’s suite of apps for free, and you’re prompted to download them.
There are a lot of popular regulars in the list, like Facebook and Instagram, but there are also some breakout hits.
Snapchat's has been adding new features, like filters for your face, that users seem to love.
Facebook's Messenger is much more than just a texting app. It allows you to make phone calls, video calls, send money, and send GIFs, among other things. It's quick, easy to use, works on many platforms and devices, and more than 700 million people around the world use it.
The free game 'Smashy Road: Wanted' absolutely dominated the App Store last month.
The objective of the game is to outrun law enforcement -- police cars, tanks, choppers, and more -- and get rewards along the way.
It's a sort of 'Crossy Road' meets 'Grand Theft Auto,' though the game is not developed by Hipster Whale, the company behind 'Crossy Road.'
