Most Downloaded Apps Of 2016: Part 2

Monday, August 22nd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Android, iOS, Smartphones

In part 1 of this article, we started checking out the most-downloaded apps for the first half of 2016. (That doesn’t include Pokemon Go.)

The top 5 so far are:

  1. Messenger with 59.7 million downloads
  2. Snapchat with 54.5 million downloads
  3. Facebook with 45.8 million downloads
  4. Instagram with 40.4 million downloads
  5. Color Switch with 39 million downloads

Let’s take a look at the rest of the list.

Coming in at number 6 is the Pandora Radio music app with 27 million downloads. The Pandora app allows you to listen to music from every genre for free. But you will occasionally hear commercials. If you want to listen to a commercial-free version, it will cost you $4.99 per month.


In the number 7 position is YouTube with 22.9 million downloads. The YouTube app lets users both play and upload videos and has, in many ways, replace TV as the go-to media entertainment for younger people.


At number 8 is the app for the subscription streaming service Netflix with 21.3 million downloads. While the app is free, you will need a subscription to the service to watch programming.

The Spotify music service app is in the 9th position with 21 million downloads. Like the Pandora app, it offers both free and paid options for listening to music.

In the number 10 position, we finally see another game, Slither.i0 with just over 19 million downloads.  Like many games, the download is free, but you have the option to make in-app purchases to progress in the game.


Players attempt to steer of hitting other snakes while hoping other snakes run into them.

To download any of these apps, just head to the app store for your phone.

    Cynthia, thanks. Are these apps just for iPhones, or iPads also. I’d like Pandora; YouTube & Spotify on my iPad. Thanks for great info, Trish
