The year 2017 was the big hit for new Tizen operating system. This is the year when users have got many new apps in the Store. The other reason is, many app developers were started to release new updates for the apps. Like WhatsApp, Facebook, Facebook Messenger & Instagram had regularly updated with new versions. Of course, still they lack in many features but it was not less to get updated versions. The other big contributor ACL for Tizen tool had also released many updates to its important apps. Most updates were released for SHAREit, UC Browser and MX Player. Now all those apps are not in the store so we are not talking about them. So let’s talk about the remaining apps which are most popular apps in the last year.
Whatever the list, either it is the list of most popular apps, most downloaded apps or most recommended apps, WhatsApp Messenger is always on the top list. It dominates in every top category and this is not different. It is the most popular social sharing app on Tizen. As usual Facebook & Facebook Messenger is on second & third spots. Last year second spot was held by popular content sharing tool SHAREit.
The most interesting thing is, Hotstar is now on 4th place. It is the first time Hotstar came into first 5 apps. It is the biggest entertainment app on Tizen, mostly used in India. Temple Run 2 is the only game who entered into top 5 list. It even surpassed all Gameloft & EA games. The only third party web browser Opera Mini is ranked on 6th position. UC Browser & UC Mini Browser app cancelations helped it to gain more users. There is one new app called Bo App Lock is first time entered into the top list.
In the list we have 5 apps from games category followed by social media apps. The only video calling app IMO is on 8th place & photo sharing app Instagram is on 10th place.
