Sing! Karaoke by Smule, YouTube and Facebook
Filipinos tend to use their smartphones mainly for fun and connectedness. The third most popular app, Sing! Karaoke by Smule, is probably the only app that is popular only within the Philippines. Filipinos are known to be singers. The likes of Charice, Lea Salonga and Apl de Ap are just a few of the notable Filipinos who made it international fame. Singing in karaokes is a unique characteristic that defines Filipinos. Now that there’s an app for it, Filipinos are of course going to go crazy for it.
The second most popular app is YouTube, which not just offers entertainment, but also offers viewers current news in video form. Filipinos would open the YouTube app for their daily dose of entertainment and current events. And lastly for the most popular application: Facebook.

It gives us a sense of connectedness to our peers from different parts of the country and of the world. Just like everyone else, we feel the need to stay connected with others. Facebook has created a platform precisely for that.
