A recent study by GlobalWebIndex on the most used App shows that the video app Vine 2013 is the app with the biggest increase in users. Vine users can create videos six seconds long and share them on Twitter or Facebook. Compared to the first quarter of 2013, the number of users for this application has increased by 403% to 23 million.
Vine has moved to 14th place in the most used apps: 3% of all mobile internet users have it. The most used app remains Google Maps. One in two users has it and its usage growth is around 82% – no signs of stagnation then.
In second and third place are Flickr and Instagram, two photo apps. With WhatsApp (+123%), Skype (+111%) and the Facebook Messenger App (+107%) there are three messaging apps in the Top 10. YouTube, Twitter and Foursquare complete the Top 10.
