Year after year, the same old social media apps have gotten the top spots on Apple’s annual list of most downloaded apps. But not this year, my friends!
Drumroll please. The most downloaded free app of 2020 in the U.S. was…ZOOM Cloud Meetings! Pop that bottle of quarantine isolation champagne, because it’s a truly astronomical rise that shows how different 2020 was from past years thanks to the pandemic. Zoom did not even crack Apple’s chart of the top 20 most downloaded free apps last year.
