In honor of 2016’s rapid sprint towards the finish line, Apple has released its official list of the top 10 most downloaded free apps on its App Store during 2016. From movie and music streaming to social media, and from games to functional apps, the top 10 list is less surprising than it is reflective of the year and its mobile trends.

According to Business Insider, Google and Facebook reigned supreme on Apple’s list of most downloaded standard apps. If it had not been for Snapchat and Pokémon GO, Facebook would have earned the top three spots in the most downloaded iPhone apps.

Check out the complete list below.

Apple Music For Android Moves Past Beta Stage, Reviewers Take Issue

This post was originally published on this site

With Apple Music’s public beta for the Android platform now complete, the streaming service has moved into version 1.0. But despite performance improvements and a new, built-in equalizer feature, reviewers still believe the app has a long way to go.

While the iOS version of the app allowed users to control the equalizer from the settings menu, Android users will be able to do so directly from Apple Music. The tradeoff, however, was an extended wait time while the developers created the appropriate accommodations for the new feature.

Then, despite statements that performance and stability changes had been made, reviewers are largely upset with the app’s lack of reliability, as well as their inability to choose lo-fi modes of streaming that relieve their data usage. With 88,000 reviews sent in, the score for Apple Music on Android is so far a measly 3.3 out of 5 stars.

If the company hopes to contend with such streaming giants as Spotify, iTunes and Youtube, it’s clear that steps must be taken to ease the overall user experience and introduce more options for personal customization and usage.
