Study Discovers Top 25 Most Used Words In App Titles

Share:

The title of an application can be the most important detail a developer presents on the market — setting aside the application’s actual content. After all, the title is the typically the very first detail you notice within the App Store. So it’s always important the name is thought out wisely and thoroughly.

With the App Store containing over 650,000 applications to date, there must be many duplicate words found in the titles. While just browsing the App Store I found literally hundreds of apps containing, “HD,” and, “free,” in their titles. So what are the top used words? Let’s go ahead and find out.

Appsfire decided to run a study to find the most common term used by iOS app developers. You can view the full list below along with the total number of downloads.

1. HD – 27777
2. Lite – 21690
3. Free – 18511
4. iPad – 11313
5. Pro – 9024
6. Guide – 8361
7. Mobile – 7695
8. App – 6142
9. iPhone – 5441
10. Game – 5377
11. Travel – 4851
12. Radio – 4633
13. World – 4504
14. Map – 4351
15. Dictionary – 4220
16. Edition – 4198
17. Calculator – 4164
18. Kids – 3852
19. English – 3680
20. News – 3611
21. Book – 3254
22. Magazine – 3009
23. Photo – 2957
24. Puzzle – 2835
25. Music – 2764

I’m not sure about you, but I found it hilarious that developers continue to use the word, “free,” in titles, although it’s clearly represented by the price tag. And according to the report, developers who use the word, “free,” don’t always price the app actually free.  Among others, both, “iPad” and, “iPhone” continue to be used in titles to attract specific users more easily.

Which words stuck out the most to you? Let us know in the comments.
