70 percent of the people would be reading this blog over their smartphones and without a thought, in just a few seconds they would switch to another app for some other stuff? Isn’t this too mainstream in today’s time? We are in a world where we use smartphone/android phones and switch between different apps the whole day. Sometimes for fun while some of the times for some specific purposes and this is what has taken a revolutionary turn in the world.
These apps have become a necessity now and probably they are the reason that now we need water, food, shelter and our phones to survive in the world. But every of the app that is there in App store or Play store isn’t a necessity and thus we here have listed 10 apps that have become an integral part of our lives and have been downloaded the most till the year 2019.
Who in the contemporary times wouldn’t be using WhatsApp probably only someone who is an old school or is 90 years old wouldn’t have an idea about it? This application is used to communicate with people all around the world. From text messages to audio calls and video calls everything could be done through this app and this is that reason that it has become so popular around the world. This has topped the list because it has already got around 5 billion downloads in the world already.
A 2004 build social networking website has flown in the air since 2011 when it came into the eyes of the world. This since then has become the most visited website and then after the launch of the same as a mobile application it has beaten all other applications in a number of downloads. This mobile application has been downloaded by around 4.9 billion people since it has been launched as a mobile application. Mark’s idea was really amazing and the number of downloads that it has got has exactly stated how much people have liked it.
Following the other two social networking applications on the third is Instagram. Well, although it is another social networking application yet it is a bit different. It only allows people to post pictures and visual stuff through this application and communicate through the same. This has sparked a visual communication needs in the world and now almost 4 billion people have the accounts on this application. How amazing it is that people are so desperate to communicate with the world and keep their social status updated that the top 3 of the most downloaded mobile applications are all related to social media.
4. Facebook Messenger
And by this time in the blog, you won’t surely be surprised if I name another social networking application to take the 4th place in the list and I am going to do the same. Well, as I said Zuckerberg had some great ideas and what I am going to state next will exactly prove the same. The 4th most downloaded application in the world currently is Facebook Messenger.

I might be getting away from the point but the actual point is that Twitter is the 7th most downloaded application in the world currently and is being used by almost 900 million people currently.
8. Google Maps
Umm here comes something productive and something that is worth downloading in my opinion. This is one of a kind application in the world. Google Maps have a map of the entire world on it with even the smallest details to be listed about every place. This makes people get help in reaching their destination and is really productive in a number of purposes which is why this has been downloaded so many times and has made to the list of most downloaded applications.

The teenagers in the world today might get to anything that brings them fun and entertainment and the inclusion of TikTok in the list of most downloaded apps is proof of the same. This application allows you to create videos with adding special effects, audios and other special filers to it that are present in the application and the trend of TikTok has taken over the world with such urge and from a 5-year-old to a 70-year-old we have seen everyone downloading and using it.
These applications are not just applications but they are ideas. Ideas that have brought the world to a different level and one of the ideas that we similarly see in the world is to connect them to people from all around the world or bring entertainment. This depicts that entertainment and connection are the most important element to be sold in the world today and the perfect medium to sell anything is to have a mobile application for the same.
The list of most downloaded apps might change in a few days, weeks or months maybe but the idea that mobile applications will be the best medium to sell your idea will remain intact will we are having the era of technology.
