Facebook Messenger – 3.408 billion downloads

The second position also goes to Mark Zuckerberg's company, yes Facebook Messenger ranks second precisely because Facebook's separate messaging app. In Facebook for browser, the messenger is already built in, but for Android are separate applications. Later the company came to launch Facebook Lite as the two apps together aimed at less powerful smartphones.

Candy Crush Saga – 805,826 million downloads

Candy Crush Saga marked as the first game I downloaded when I bought my first top of the line smartphone. At the time I bought a LG G2 and upon entering the Play Store was the first game I downloaded to test the LG G2. As I said above, Candy Crush Saga even got ahead of Subway Surfers in number of downloads, but then lost out and was in second position. A fun matching game, which many say gets boring with time.

My Talking Tom – 578,344 million downloads

My Talking Tom is a virtual pet cat, where the goal is to take care of your kitten as if it were a real animal. I need to give food, bathe, play, among many other options. It's amazing how children love this game so much, where they take the dog seriously like a real cat.

Temple Run 2 – 500,981 million downloads

Another endless run-style game that is very successful among Android users, even surpassing even the first Temple Run. I'm not particularly fond of this style of gameplay, though I still prefer Temple Run 2 over Subway Surfers.

It's amazing when we see these numbers and come across apps and games that have already surpassed the 1 billion download mark. This shows how much an app falls in the general public's favor. Remember that this list referring to the first half of the year, ie, these numbers may change in the next list.
