Social networking giant Facebook and mobile messaging service WhatsApp have retained their positions as the ‘most popular applications’ among Indians this year, says a report.
Hereto, Truecaller and UC Browser also figure among the top-five most popular mobile applications among Indians, as per the study conducted by WhichApp, a mobile app that helps users discover new applications that their friends use.
WhichApp, which said that more than 20 thousand apps have been discovered and downloaded via its platform, also named MXPlayer, Flipkart, Candy Crush, Applock and Naukri.com as other popular apps among Indians.
The popularity has been decided on the basis of the number of WhichApp users having and actively using the apps on their mobile phones. Only those apps have been taken into account, which have been used at least once a month.
“Our future plans are to localise for
vernacular languages for the non-English speaking audience and rollout in other countries as the app is only available in India right now,” WhichApp Co-Founder and CEO Kapil Chawla said.
“The aim is to have 10 million users by December 2016,”he added. Currently, it has 100,000 users in the country.
