The apps that millennials can't live without

Millennials are often accused of carrying their phones like extensions of themselves. When they’re on those phones, most of their time (roughly 57 per cent) is occupied by apps.

The latest U.S. data from comScore shows that those between the ages of 18 and 34 are spending the majority of their time on a select few apps, too. Interestingly, the ones they pick aren’t always the same apps they use the most. While both Snapchat and Pandora saw enough usage to put them in the top 10 apps by unique visitors, neither app was dubbed as a must-have.

Here’s the rundown of the top 10 apps that millennials say they just can’t live without.
