With the news that New Year’s Day was the biggest ever in the App Store, with iOS users spending almost $240 million on apps, we wanted to take a look at one of the biggest areas of growth that came late in 2016: the iMessage App Store, which now has more than 21,000 apps.
iOS 10 has seen a range of new features including the iMessage App Store. iOS 10 users can freely download apps to be used within iMessage, such as (our fave) Stickers. Stickers is a new feature that allows users to place and stick a range of photos and graphics onto messages.
