10 Most Popular Mobile Apps Of 2013

It was the year of mobile in 2013. Globally, more than 100 billion mobile apps were downloaded in this year, with revenues from apps touching approximately $26 billion. It is an increase of 44% compared to 2012, when 64 billion apps were downloaded, generating revenues of $64 billion. Android and iOS apps accounted for nearly 90% of total apps downloads. Android accounted for 52.2% of all downloaded apps, while iOS had 40.6% share.
