7. Social Networking
This is the most popular category of Apps and are most likely taking up the most space on your phone. These are the apps we go to for almost daily use and functionality.

Entertainment apps also include apps such as Jib Jab and Elf Yourself which are both apps where you can take a picture of yourself and put your face onto an elf’s body and then choose from a variety of songs that your elf is singing. The app Dubsmash is an app that allows you to quickly and easily create those tiny 4 second little “movies” you see on social media.

Games Apps are actual games that you play on the app. In other words, when you open up the app you are opening up a game to play.
