Top Five Apps Downloaded in 2016


Have you ever looked at the app store and thought wow there are so many games; what will I choose? This article provides the 5 most popular apps in 2016 that should help you with that decision. So here they are:

#1 Snapchat

Snapchat is an app that lets you send quickly disappearing messages, photos, and videos. On snapchat you can also put filters on your pictures and videos. Even I have Snapchat and I use it all the time because it’s way faster to send videos and pictures to my friends and it’s available in 20 different languages! You can also send those things to a big group of people. The idea of Snapchat was to create a selfie app which it is but it’s become way more developed than that.

#2 Instagram

Instagram is a social photo sharing app and only focuses on photo sharing. You might think it’s very similar to Facebook but it’s actually not. Facebook is just a general social networking site; photo-sharing is just one of its features. It was developed by Facebook though. I use Instagram a lot too, because I can see things that my friends are doing and what new things are going on. All my friends have Instagram and I see them on it all the time looking at new videos, pictures of celebrities, family, friends, and in style things.

#3 Color Switch

Color Switch is an app where you keep tapping on your screen to get through obstacles and try to get the highest score you can get. On Color Switch there are different game modes that you can play that’s different from the original one that it starts off with. Such as a themed one like Halloween or Christmas, reversed, sideways, and many more. In Color Switch as you play you collect stars and use those stars to buy different objects to go through the game with. If you play Color Switch then you won’t want to stop playing until you can reach your high score and then beat that one and so on. So for some people it’s really addictive. I think this app has become a big hit because this is a game where you can play different game modes.

#4 Youtube

Everyone knows Youtube but here’s some things about it if you don’t. Youtube is a place where you can watch music videos, how-to guides for things you’re trying to do, or just to watch something funny. In November it was bought by Google for 1.65 billion dollars. I use Youtube sometimes to watch about how to do things that I don’t know how to do and listen to music just by playing their music videos so I don’t have to buy them. I think people like Youtube a lot because it has many funny, musical, sometimes full movies, easily accessible without paying a fee, and lots more.

#5 Netflix

Before there was Netflix people had to drive to places to rent movies and bring them back to return them. Netflix helps you not to do that; you can watch things instantly with Netflix without having to even get off the couch. You can watch movies and TV shows on Netflix but you have to pay $10 a month to keep your membership. At first you can get a 30 day free trial without paying. It’s a great way to watch movies and TV shows without paying for each single one. There are way more shows and movies than you can count, so you’ll never not have something to watch. This article has helped me with knowledge of knowing what apps to get so I hope it will help you too.
