1. Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger wins the prize for most downloaded iOS app in 2014, even though it has not won anyone’s heart.

2. Snapchat

Snapchat is the second most downloaded free iOS app and for all the right reasons. Enjoy taking pictures, adding captions and then sending them to your friends!
