Last month of January was really shocking for all Tizen users. Most useful tool ACL for Tizen was removed in this month and it has changed everything dramatically since then. After its disappearance all supported apps were removed from store so it put free space in the Tizen Store. Now Tizen team has released list of top 20 most popular Tizen apps of January. It is the first time when there will be no ACL apps contains in the list so the space have taken by other apps. It is the reason now more entertainment and utility apps have entered into the top list. The Indian live streaming app Hotstar is now in top list of Samsung Z2 device, it defeated almost all other popular apps.
The UC Browser & its mini version UC Mini Browser are no longer serving Tizen customers. This is directly benefitted to other third party browser Opera Mini. It has increased to 4th place, which was out of top 10 rank. You can guess the most popular app on first rank. Yes, without any doubt in the 3rd consecutive year, WhatsApp Messenger is still enjoying its first place. Company’s other apps Facebook & Facebook Messenger are on second & third spot.
First time Danger Dash & Daily Hunt are made their way into the list, both have got 19th & 20th place respectively. Only file sharing app Xender is on fifth place & video player tool VLC for Tizen is on 12th spot.
The absence of MX Player tool has helped VLC for Tizen to get into the list for the first time. The video calling app IMO Free Video Calls & Chat is on 7th rank and popular endless running game Temple Run 2 is on 10th place.
Affer the WhatsApp Messenger, 2nd spot was always fixed for SHAREit, but now this is taken by social media app Facebook. There were 12 ACL apps which was removed from Tizen Store and nearly those all were into the top list. So you can think how Tizen Store has changed in just one month. Last month we haven’t seen any new apps or games in Tizen Store, may be we will get it in coming months when Samsung release its next Tizen smartphone. If you are looking for new companion tools for ACL apps then get those from this list.
