Infographic: Social Media Top Android Apps

Infographic: The Global Top 10 Android Apps | Statista You will find more statistics at Statista

5 August 2017. Science & Enterprise reports frequently on mobile phones and their increasing importance to new discoveries in science and technology. As of 2015, some 4.4 billion mobile phones were in use worldwide, of which 2.6 billion were smartphones.

Google’s Android operating system is found in at least 8 in 10 of those smartphones, which is why we’re showing this chart. These results from Statista show the top 6 leading apps downloaded to smartphones are for social media and messaging, with Facebook properties prominent among them. The chart displayed here last Saturday showed Facebook dominating social media overall. The data suggest researchers or business people eager to take advantage of ubiquitous smartphone technology may need to build their apps around social media and messaging.
