Here are the 11 fastest-growing apps in the US – Business Insider

Apps that improve your daily life are the fastest-growing type in the US.

That’s according to the measurement and analytics firm comScore, which ranked the 11 fast-growing apps in the country over a period of two years — December 2014 to December 2016. ComScore only measured the growth of unique users over the age of 18.

Ride-hailing apps like Lyft and Uber broke the top 10, while apps for selling your stuff were another popular category.

Apple just announced a load of new products on Tuesday morning.

From glamorous red iPhones to cheap new iPads, the California tech company unveiled updates, refreshes, and accessories for many of its product lines.

Apple didn’t hold a media big event to coincide with the announcements either. Instead, it just pre-briefed a few media outlets and dumped the updates on its website.

Nintendo Switch controllers can steer games on your computer, Engadget

Ever since gamers discovered that the Nintendo Switch’s Pro Controller works with computers, there’s been a lingering question: what about the Joy-Cons you get with the system itself? Yes, thankfully. Both Nintendo Actu and Sam Williams have verified that the peripherals work as Bluetooth controllers on Macs and Windows PCs so long as you use an app that binds buttons to mouse and keyboard controls. They should work with Android, too, although Nintendo Actu warns that it saw serious lag — your experience may vary depending on the mobile device you’re using.


This will only be of limited use given that you’re only getting a relatively basic gamepad with each Joy-Con, and you may have to change your configurations with each game. With that said, it’s still a treat for Switch owners who like to play on their PCs and would rather not buy another gamepad unless it’s absolutely necessary.
