The Top 10 Most Popular Apps of 2021
Apple’s new mobile operating system is called iOS 11. It is a platform built for all of Apple’s devices from phones and tablets, to Macs and Apple Watches. It is also a smartwatch. So this year we are going to see a lot more people using their Apple devices to shop. For example, Apple allows you to share shopping lists on iMessage.
Many people are also willing to pay for convenience so you can go to the Apple Store and get help with your device. You can order a Genius Bar appointment or contact Apple directly. Either way you can get help that day.
Other ways you can shop on iMessage are via Shops at Macy’s, a Macy’s App, and Target stores’ app.

What do you think? Which apps will be number one in 2021?
What if they’re not the same app that we have today?
Lets take a look at the 10 most popular apps in 2016 and see if they’ve changed.
For a quick, 28 second snapshot of 2016
Audible – Just because audiobooks were huge in 2016, doesn’t mean they’ll stay the most popular in 2021.
– Just because audiobooks were huge in 2016, doesn’t mean they’ll stay the most popular in 2021. Sky Go (Sky TV) – I’m not saying that Sky Go will replace Sky TV, but in 2016 Sky Go didn’t exist and we saw Sky Go is #1. I think the same will happen to Sky Go.
Number 9: Dropbox
Currently the number 8 global app with 150 million installs, Dropbox is going to keep growing in the coming years. The company saw almost triple the amount of growth it did in 2017. It was able to attract users from all ages and it managed to increase its active users by 18%. Dropbox is moving to their new headquarters in San Francisco and is investing even more resources into their engineering team. This means there will be an ever-increasing focus on security. The company has already built the solutions that protect private data and protect sensitive information.
Number 8: Instagram
Facebook’s camera app started out as a photo-sharing app. But in the following years, the company expanded it to include a “stories” feature and a massive community of advertising partners.
Number 8: TikTok
As of January 2019, the top App Store download in the United States was “TikTok”. With more than a billion users, TikTok is one of the largest social apps in the world. It offers simple and fun way to express yourself and create videos with soundtracks and filters.
YouTube is the largest video sharing platform, but it is hard to reach the millions of users who use TikTok. So it makes sense that Google and others including Amazon, Facebook, and Google collaborated on the development of TikTok.
App Store Download Rank: 2

Number 7: Netflix
Netflix is the undisputed king of video streaming and has experienced explosive growth, thanks to an amazing original content library that no other competitor has yet been able to match.
The success of its original series Stranger Things (No. 2 on our list) and the runaway popularity of House of Cards (No. 10) has made Netflix a regular in the top 10. These two original shows and Netflix’s willingness to buy shows from other studios has made it a household name.
Netflix’s original content will be required viewing for users well into the next decade.
Number 6: YouTube
YouTube is the world’s most popular video sharing and viewing platform. According to Statista, YouTube alone accounted for nearly 22 percent of the U.S. video advertising market in 2015.
Number 6: Amazon
“Like” Amazon on Facebook here to stay.
Despite Instagram’s cloning of Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature and WhatsApp’s new “Unsend” feature, customers are still very much interested in “Look Inside” (with over 60 million monthly users).
While Facebook and Instagram aggressively copied Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature (allowing shoppers to scroll through the vast selection of items on Amazon), users like the feature just fine, according to Piper Jaffray, Amazon’s early investor.
When it comes to Instagram and Snapchat, Piper Jaffray noted that Instagram is the clear winner and that Snapchat could “stagnate.” The analysts noted that Instagram’s “ecosystem” is “many times more powerful than Snapchat’s.
Number 5: YouTube
YouTube is only a part of Google and there is no way I can expect it to become a fully integrated piece of Google by 2021, but it should do well and for me it is a classic example of the place a particular tech brand has in the new age. When YouTube was founded in 2005, it was one of the top free content video streaming sites, but to say it was revolutionary is an understatement. YouTube is now a must for many as it is where it is possible to learn something new, discover new talent or experience first-hand something that you would have only read about or heard about. I can’t see it ever becoming a Google owned or operated brand and I believe YouTube is a real example of what a smaller, but nonetheless a powerful, tech brand can do and achieve.
