14 July 2018. This past week, Science & Enterprise reported twice on studies involving mobile apps that gave a mixed verdict about their value. On 11 July, an Australian team found mental health apps may be promoting their use with misleading guidance to individuals on the extent and seriousness of their psychological conditions. And yesterday, researchers at University of Iowa found a game app plus wearable devices increased the amount of exercise by usually sedentary office workers, but the effects declined over the next several weeks.

It may helps putting the value of these specialized apps into a larger context, namely the main reasons people add apps to their phones. Our friends at Statista compiled the chart above, with data from the market research company Priori Data, showing the top 10 Android app downloads in June 2018, this weekend’s infographic. The data show messaging, games, and social media are the most downloaded apps, which suggests the Iowa group may be on to something when they used a game format for their app. But the findings also show the dominance of Facebook in the mobile world, owners of 5 of the top 10 downloaded apps, including the top 2 downloads.
