Facebook tops App Annie’s list


Facebook has come out a winner in the most downloaded apps of 2014 list produced by App Annie.

Facebook owned the worldwide top four most-downloaded apps, including Facebook, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram, when combining iOS and Android downloads in 2014.

  1. Facebook messenger – published by Facebook
  2. Facebook – published by Facebook
  3. WhatsApp Messenger – published by Facebook
  4. Instagram – published by Facebook
  5. Skype – published by Microsoft
  6. Clean Master – published by Cheetah Mobile
  7. Viber – published by Rakuten
  8. LINE – published by LINE
  9. Twitter – published by Twitter
  10. Snapchat – published by Snapchat

One thing to note is that App Annie doesn’t put games and apps in the same category therefore, the global list doesn’t include titles like Candy Crush Saga which might account for more total downloads than Facebook’s utilities.

Still it’s pretty impressive by the social networking site whose revenue’s rose above $10bn for the first time in 2014.
