Our smartphones have become an essential part of our daily lives. What was once a tool simply to place calls has become an essential Swiss Army knife of tech that goes hand in hand with our work lives, education, discovering online free slots library, and countless daily tasks. With the advent of apps in recent years, even the latest smartphone won’t come out of the box at its full potential. You can largely thank the millions of apps available on marketplaces like the Google Play store for the power you now hold in your hand. So without any further delay, let’s check these popular android apps available in Israel.
WhatsApp is the most used messaging app not only in Israel but in the world, and numbers are already higher than other social networks such as Instagram and Twitter. It uses the phone’s internet connection to let you chat with other WhatsApp users, without SMS text message charges. The app also lets you share images and files, and supports free voice and video calls. While Facebook acquired WhatsApp for US$19 billion in February 2014, it’s been operating as a separate entity since then and hasn’t yet seen the same marketing-friendly features as Facebook Messenger.
Over the past few years, Instagram has seen exponential growth — from one million users in December 2010 to over one billion in 2020. It is a social media platform in which people post pictures and videos on their profiles. Everything else is self-explanatory. There are many settings you can tweak which involves privacy and what you can view, as well as security and profile customization.
Facebook is the world’s biggest social networking platform where users can post comments, share photographs, and post links to news or other interesting content on the web, chat live, and watch short-form video. Shared content can be made publicly available, or it can be shared only among a select group of family or friends, or with a single person. Facebook also provides a customizable set of privacy controls, so users can protect their information from getting to third-party individuals.
TikTok is a short-form, video-sharing app that allows users to create and share 15-second videos, on any topic and it might be the world’s fastest-growing social media app. Extremely popular with Generation Z, the app is a glimpse into what it means to be growing up in today’s hyper-connected world. The vast majority of users on Facebook today at aged 40 plus, while Instagram is more popular with users aged 20-40. Since its launch, the TikTok app’s popularity has been growing enormously. In October 2018, it was the most-downloaded photo and video app in the Google Play Store globally.
If you’re going to be driving around in Israel, this app is a must. Waze is a community-based driving app, meaning other drivers out there have posted updates, including police and reports of heavy traffic. It’s a great navigational tool, with a useful GPS engine that will help you out if you don’t know where you’re heading in Israel.
