Most Downloaded Free Apps

These days folks can’t function right without having the right apps  on their phone, and while everyone’s needs are different, over the past  year there are certain apps that seem to have grabbed the attention of  most people. 

iTunes has just released their annual list of the most downloaded  free apps of the year, with the Bitmoji app jumping to the top spot. The  app, which creates avatars to use in Snapchats and emails, wasn’t even  in the Top Ten last year. Meanwhile, last year’s number one, Snapchat,  falls to number two, but they can’t be too upset, considering both apps  are owned by the same company, Snap Inc. 

While this year’s list is made up of many familiar favorites, there  is one new app that made it all the way to number 15, Wish, which lets  people buy low-priced good from China. Meanwhile, Pokémon Go, which made  the Top Ten last year, showed a significant loss in popularity. Not  only did not not make the Top Ten for free apps, or it didn't make the  Top Ten for free games either.
