No ad to show here.
Most popular apps?
The top five most popular apps saw Face Changer 2 hit the number one spot. The app allows users to indulge in the face-swapping tomfoolery that’s all the rage this year.
The local version of Google Play didn’t list the most popular apps for South Africa, however.
What about the most popular games?
It’s pretty much a no-brainer that Pokemon Go would be number one on the list, being quite possibly the most iconic game of 2016.
A slight change in SA
Dream League Soccer and Pokemon Go made up the rest of the top five. It’s rather interesting that Pokemon Go only just cracked the top five. It’s perhaps a clue to our differing tastes or due to the fact that Pokemon Go took a long time to make it to SA shores.
