    Good observation @Cueto_99, I'm pretty sure Whatsapp usage is through the roof outside the US across continents.

    Strange.... right in the middle of the list singing 'One of these just doesn't belong here...' seems to be Yahoo Stocks. The whole list is social media, entertainment, and email, but right in the middle is a stocks app. I had no idea there were that many people who cared about the stock market.
    Or maybe it's just surprising that a stock app beat any weather app.
  5. Nice to see that people are using Google+.

    Last I checked that was included with iOS on some kind of 'deal' and it couldn't be uninstalled. So the numbers are 'padded'.

    Of course that was last time I checked (or even cared for that matter).

    Not surprising you can't easily install apps on android without Google Play, so....

    This is a totally inaccurate list. Most of these are preinstalled on most smartphones and can not be removed unless you root your phone. Updates are constantly being downloaded hence the false numbers.
