The most downloaded app with only 1 star rating

Facebook Messenger

Which app is most downloaded but has only 1 star rating?

If the logo in this articles picture didn't give it away, the answer is Facebook Messenger.

Although Messenger has claimed the top of the pops (so to speak) in the Apple app market, users (that’s you) are not happy. Put it this way, Facebook Messenger has a 1 star rating which is the lowest rating that an app can receive.

The story is no different in Google’s Play Store.

Why is this? Well the general consensus is that users are upset (angry more like it) that Facebook forced users to download the app when Facebook decided to just remove the messaging component from the main Facebook app. Users want the app, they just aren't happy about how they were forced to download it; thus the contradiction between the popularity of the app with its negative reviews.

Facebook's will be phasing Messenger out from the main Facebook app with the aim of streamline the development of both the main Facebook app and Messenger.
