NEW YORK, March 26, 2017: Although Snap’s stock price was a bit down this week, Snapchat is the top searched app on the iOS App Store, a media report said.

According to a report in Forbes magazine, Snapchat led all competitors in App Store search volume and as a result, Snapchat was also the app people were looking for most frequently.

Snap Inc, the parent company of picture messaging app Snapchat, went public earlier this month. The young company, founded in 2012, posted a $515 million loss last year.

Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram was placed on the second spot, while social media giant Facebook’s mobile app took the third rank.

Google’s video platform YouTube is on the fourth spot. Teen—focused messaging startup Kik is fifth, and micro—blogging website Twitter is sixth on the list, the report said. (IANS)

 Facebook-owned Instagram is reportedly testing a new feature dubbed as “Nametags” — a clone of Snapchat’s ‘Snapcode’ which will let users create a “custom scannable tag” by designing a pattern of emojis.

The feature will also offer an option to use a selfie image for creating a custom Instagram “Nametag”, Inverse reported late on Tuesday.

Snapchat launched “Snapcode” in January 2015 that allowed users to add friends using their phone cameras.

Instagram has been in the news for cloning Snapchat’s features for long. “Instagram is simply building upon a technology that Snapchat created,” Kevin Systrom, Co-Founder, Instagram had said in a recent interview with Wall Street Journal.

Instagram recently introduced a “@mention” sticker for iOS users.

“After you’ve taken a photo or video in your stories camera, open the stickers tray, tap the @mention sticker, start typing the name of the account you want to mention and select from the options that appear,” the company’s blog informed.. “You can then rotate, scale and place your sticker wherever you’d like.”
