(ANSA) – Apple today reveals the list of the most downloaded applications for iPhone of 2018, in which those dedicated to social networks prevailed, while among the games, the champion is still the popular Fortnite. The list is guided by the classic YouTube networks, followed respectively by Instagram, Snapchat, Messenger and Facebook.
In the case of Bitmoji, which was the most downloaded application of 2017, this year has reached the sixth place. It is an application that owns Snapchat and allows users to create emojis similar to them.
Facebook has managed to remain among the first places, despite the problems it faces, with strong criticism for the way it manages it with regards to the privacy of its millions of users. Electoral interference, particularly in the 2016 presidential election in which Donald Trump won, meant that many people were using the Mark Zuckerberg network less.
In addition to everything, the application of Facebook and two others owned by the company (Instagram and Messenger) were among the five most downloaded of the year, although the biggest challenge was to see how they face the future. Snapchat has also faced a number of challenges this year, including browsing a controversial redesign that has been widely criticized by users and growing competition from Instagram, which has copied many of its popular features.
The subject of the photographs remains in the users' preferences. In this case, the most popular paid app was the Selfies, Facetune ($ 3.99) edition. Kirakira + ($ 0.99), which allows you to add special effects to photos and videos, has obtained the second place, according to information provided today by Cupertino (California).
Apple is limited to providing data on the most downloaded platforms of the year, but is required to disclose the number of times they have been downloaded. As for the games, the popular Fortnite is still preferred, while the second place for Helix Jump, a game in which players guide a ball that falls through a maze. The third position was for Rise Up, a game that allows players to protect a globe from obstacles.
