Only a month left in 2018, so it’s finally time to decide the best Apps on smartphones. We have picked the Top ten most downloaded iPhone and Android apps of 2018.

Top Ten Most Downloaded Android Apps

When it comes to Android the library of Apps is massive. It probably is because of the ease with anyone in the world can upload his app on the Play Store. It is relatively very easy to acquire a license for an App on the Play Store compared to the App Store. This can be a good thing or a bad thing for Google. Some good things are the massive library of apps and games, anyone can find something they can enjoy. I can just point you to the news that came out a couple of days ago that multiple apps on the Play Store had viruses. A lot of people got affected by those apps as well. So here are the top apps for Android:

  1. Castbox – Free Podcast and audio

Castbox is very easy to use. It gives a super simple and clean interface to work with. The library to choose from was massive, there were all kinds of podcasts. It also has a playlist feature like Spotify, and also a subscription function like YouTube. It also has given continuous playback, you can listen a playlist on repeat. Any person from wherever in the world can access this wide information.

The best part about the app was the ability to start you own podcast. Personally I didn’t have time for a podcast, but I know many people are interested in such stuff. So you can start your podcast and it was all free of cost, no hosting fees, no nothing. Just start recording straight from the app and upload it.

2. Home Workout – No Equipment

This app is great for people like me who didn’t have time for gym, And this app doesn’t ask for any additional equipment or payment as well. Obviously you wont be able to get built like your favorite bodybuilders, but what it will do is focus on your main muscles and tone them. 

If you are just starting off with fitness this app will be really helpful. You wont have to worry about anything else just start working out from your home. And if you feel like you have reached the maximum improvement you can make with it. Then you can join a gym for more enhancements.z

3. TikTok

After the ending of Musical.ly TikTok was gonna replace it. First I didn’t know how to feel about it, I imagined it would be similar to musical.ly and young kids would love it. But after the crazy amounts of funny videos, it has produced. it is definitely one of the best apps of the year. If you are under 20 this app is definitely for you. The making process is really easy as well, but if you are making a more complex video it will take some time. But it is nice, it brings out the creativity in all of us. It might even be the start of something bigger for you like YouTube. 

4. Spotify

With this year being one of the best years for music, Spotify is at an all-time high. Almost everyone I know has heard about it or uses it regularly. With Spotify, you have access to a world of music and podcasts. You can listen to artists and albums, or create your own playlist of your favorite songs. Want to discover new music? Choose a ready-made playlist that suits your mood or get personalized recommendations.

Spotify also offers thousands of Podcasts, including originals that you can’t find anywhere else.

5. YouTube TV – Watch and Record TV

This app came out last year and is made by Google. At first, I was skeptical about the things it might be able to do. But after a year it is the best alternative to cable I have ever seen. Cable-free live TV which mean you don’t need cable box at all.

You can watch any major broadcasting channel which as very helpful. Channels like AMC and ESPN, I could watch my favorite shows live from my phone. Which was awesome I didn’t have to worry about getting to the TV and missing it sometimes, all I had to was press record from my phone and it recorded whatever I wanted to.

It also has cloud storage for DVR recording if you don’t enough space on your phone for HD shows, you record it on the cloud. There are like 5 accounts per household, everyone gets their own logins.

6. DU Recorder – Screen Recorder, video editor

DU recorder was the best screen-recorder I have yet used on a phone. It was so easy and simple to use and recorded high-quality videos. It can do many thing like screen capture, or record and also edit the videos. You don’t even have to root your device. As I like to stream games I even streamed some games with this app which was very simple.

  • NO root needed, NO recording time limit
  • HIGH-QUALITY video: 1080p, 12Mbps, 60FPS

Simply Piano is an amazing app for beginner piano learners or even help pros. There is a wide range of musical notes and tastes for everyone. It teaches you how to play with both hands. It had every popular song you would ever want to remake yourself.

8. Wish – The secret to affordable shopping

Wish connects shoppers directly to over manufacturers, so shoppers can find affordable goods. There’s no middle man, so prices are lower and the quality is the same as what you’d get at the mall. This app was just like Aliexpress in my opinion so it was hard to choose between them when ordering. Aliexpress has bit higher prices than Wish.

Some functions of the app are:

  • Faster delivery in the EU with Wish Express
  • Secure payments using credit card, Paypal, or Android pay
  • English customer service
  • Easy refunds
  • Unique Items
  • 1,000s of sales

Like I said earlier this is a very creative app, it is not anything we have seen before. The amount of things people are able to do with this is pretty amazing.

5. PicsArt Photo Studio

PicsArt is very easy to use and the app is also very simple. The editing was actually a lot more detailed than I thought. It had a lot of options like collages and frames. It is definitely one of the best apps for editing photos on iPhone.

Spotify is the best music streaming app on iPhone, It has every music I ever wanted. Always gets the latest albums when they release or any music that releases it has it.
