The average American has 20 apps installed on their phone. That’s it!? I feel like I have WAY more.

A new survey found the top 10 apps we say we can’t live without.

1. Facebook, 21%.

2. Instagram, 11%.

3. Gmail, 8%.

4. YouTube, 8%.

5. Snapchat, 6%.

6. Facebook Messenger, 6%.

7. Twitter, 6%.

8. Google Maps, 6%.

9. Google, 5%.

10. Amazon, 4%.

Facebook may be number one by a large margin, but it’s not as large of a margin as it once was.

Two years ago, 26% of people said Facebook was indispensable, it’s now dropped down to 21%.

For people under the age 25, Facebook is only the FOURTH most important app, behind Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat.

The survey also found the apps that are the biggest, quote, “time robbers” on our phone.

49% said social media and chat apps, 42% said the web browser, 36% said email and only 26% said games.
