Pandora Radio is only available on App store for just both the iPhone and also the iPad.


8. Facebook


Top ten list of the most downloaded iOS Apps of 2014 not surprisingly includes Facebook at no. 8. One of the most obvious factors for Facebook being one the list is it’s personality. 1 in every 13 people on Earth is on Facebook. In 20 minutes 1,000,000 links are shared on Facebook. The app recently released an update and also the users can now edit the posts and also play the videos somewhat automatically. Facebook users also have the ability to block the inappropriate content and also the various subject matters from the Newsfeeds using the iOS app. The Facebook app can just be downloaded from Apple Store for the both iPhone and also the iPad.


7. Instagram


Top ten list of the most downloaded iOS Apps of 2014 includes Instagram, a photo sharing tool owned by Facebook. Instagram is a fast, interesting and fun way to share your life with friends and family using your iOS system. Just take a picture or video, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post them to Instagram — it’s as easy as saying 1-2-3. You can even share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more. I guess people want to beat Kim Kardashian West’s record for sharing her wedding photo.


6. Snapchat


Snapchat is just among most downloaded iOS apps as it just emerged from somewhat going into the oblivion by just coming up with the highly innovative tools and also the features. Stories werejust incorporated, which also creates the timelines of the gathered snaps over the 24 hours. Other secret features like using the white crayons just to draw were also discovered by the users increasing the functionality to whole new level and also getting some users scrambling for it. Snapchat is just available for the free from App Store for just both the iPhone and also the iPad.


5. Google Maps

Google maps

Coming in at No.5 is Google maps. Why are they popular? Because they deliver an excellent set of mapping tools for iPhone and iPad users. The latest version, in addition to being optimized for iOS 7, has plenty of cool tools, including voice-guided GPS navigation, 360-degree Street View tours, and public transit, biking, and walking options for the user. Alas, if only Apple would let iOS users choose their default mapping app. Maybe, sometime in the near future this will happen. In May 2014, the search engine giant unleashed a major update, adding a slew of new navigation features such as lane guidance and walking time as well as the ability to book a ride from car hire service Uber directly from the app.


4. Dropbox

Coming in at number 4 on the top 10 list of most downloaded iOS apps is the Dropbox. It’s known that iCloud is an iOS-friendly app and its usage on Windows or even a BlackBerry has been reported to be sluggish. Here is where Dropbox for iOS comes into action as a good alternative app for business users who want to access documents, photos, and videos from a number of mobile devices. Thanks to its user-friendly interface, Dropbox is very easy to use and performs seamlessly.


3. Anrgy Birds

Angry Birds

Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Finnish computer game developer Rovio Entertainment that started the Angry Birds franchise. Inspired primarily by a sketch of stylized wingless birds, the game was first released for iOS in December 2009. Since that time, over 12 million copies of the game have been purchased from the iOS App Store, which has prompted the company to design versions for other touchscreen-based smartphones, most notably those using the Android, Symbian, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 operating systems. It has since expanded to video game consoles and for PCs.


2. YouTube


Nothing beats the YouTube at just being among most downloaded of the iOS apps.The app still reigns supreme for watching videos for free. The iPhone and iPad versions received minor updates in 2013 including video quality adjustments and accessibility improvements for Wi-Fi connections. Don’t believe me? Here are some YouTube facts to substantiate my claim. 60 hours of video are uploaded every minute, or one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube every second. Over 4 billion videos are viewed a day Over 800 million unique users visit YouTube each month.


1. Candy Crush Saga

Candy Crush Saga

According to the US Today since the launch of this app in 2012, downloads for the Candy Crush Saga have just surpassed the 500 million making it most downloaded of the iOS app in Apple corporate history. It’s just continuous updates and also the powerups have just helped it become attractive among diverse audiences.
