If we ask the question which is the most downloaded app in 2018, most people would suggest names like YouTube, WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, Facebook, etc. It’s true that these popular apps are downloaded quite frequently, but if we look at 2018 stats, there’s a completely new entry – Tik Tok. What is even more surprising is that the most downloaded app in 2018, Tik Tok, is a Chinese app. However, it’s relevant for the global market and can be installed by all users, so it beats the popular names in terms of total downloads in 2018. Of course the popular apps have much higher total lifetime downloads, but in 2018 Tik Tok is a clear winner. In the first quarter of 2018, it had registered around 45.8 million downloads, making it the most downloaded app in the world.
What is Tik Tok?
Also known as Douyin in China, Tik Tok is a global social community built around sharing of user-generated video content. The app allows you to watch a wide variety of short videos that people have created and shared with the world. Using the app, you can create your own short videos and share with everyone. It is the perfect app to capture funny and memorable moments in a short video and share it with friends, family and the entire community. Tik Tok offers inbuilt video editing tools that can be used to add special effects, fun stickers and other such stuff that would make the video even more interesting and worth sharing.
