Etsy iOS App

Each week, we take a look at the top twenty most recommended iOS apps on Powerslyde. We want to help you find some great apps recommended by every day users like yourselves, and maybe bring to light some apps that might not show up in the top apps lists on iTunes.

Here are five of the most recommended apps this week:

Angry Birds Space
Temple Run
Etsy
Talking Tom Cat
Toshl Finance

Now, that’s pretty interesting, right? Angry Birds Space continues to be super popular, perhaps even more so than the fist iteration of the outrageously successful Angry Birds phenomenon. Temple Run was a huge hit, spawning a sequel, and two Disney-branded spin offs as well, but it’s the first game that’s on the top recommended list here.

Talking Tom Cat is an app that has youngsters talking to an animated cat, who will then repeat the phrases in a funny voice with matching animations; makes a lot of sense it would be recommended by so many folks. The Etsy iOS app packages the crafter’s retail site into an on-the-go package, super useful for those who need a hand-made gift on the fly. Toshl Finance is a useful financial app that starts out free; you only need to pay for the features you want.

It’s not all about making an app that is the most complex and useful; all you need to do is make a nifty little app that can become popular at the right time, and you can have a hit on your hands. Outfit7 has discovered this: somehow they have managed to surpass 60 million downloads of their “Talking Friends” apps across iOS and Android.

There are some absolutely mammoth numbers to consider: a lineup of 8 apps has surpassed 60 million downloads. 35 million of those belong to Talking Tom Cat, which has garnered enough attention to even show up on a recent episode of Modern Family. They’ve had 6 apps be listed in the iPhone’s top 200 grossing apps, 5 apps in the top 60 of the iPhone App Store’s top paid list, and 3 apps show up in the iPhone’s top 100 free list. As well, the app is popular with international users, with 67% of downloads coming from outside the US, compared to an average rate of 30-45%. While many of their apps are free, they are seeing an average of 10% conversion rate on in-app purchases within those apps, so they’re making some money off of

What do Outfit7 attribute to their success? The CEO of Outfit7, Andrej Nabergoj, says that it’s in part due to their apps’ appeal to kids. “Our growth is powered by what I would call the Law of Unintended Consequences. Kids are using smart phones in ways that were never anticipated. While observing kids playing with our apps, we realized we were no longer an app developer, but a mobile toy maker.” As well, the international appeal can be traced to apps like Talking Tom Cat being based off of manipulating the sound and touch of users, allowing the apps to be easily adapted for use in non-English speaking countries.

It’s mind boggling to consider just how popular and lucrative these simple little apps are – they may be simple little toys for smartphone owners to play around with or entertain their kids, but there is clearly some serious business in these apps, and it is a good time to be making these apps.
