One Social Media hack to see what the best Apps are currently or new ones that are up and coming before mainstream really pays attention to them is going to the App store and looking at the Top FREE apps list and going down the Top 100 apps by one on a daily/weekly basis. If you do it often enough you notice what’s popping and what’s falling or losing momentum.
As an example, Boomerang from Instagram was popping and now as of December 2016 it’s barely in the Top 100. This can give you massive insights on what consumers love, hate, or just not feeling any longer.
