Top 5 are pretty expected, but what is most interesting are the Chinese tech giants that made this list. Anything from the most popular app in the world (WeChat) to giant hardware manufacturers like BBK Electronics give China much more of an influence than we may think in the US — sneaky sneaky. What I don’t like is how companies like Facebook, Amazon, etc. are so big they can practically annihilate their competition with a simple app update or new department. Yes, they may be innovative… but aren’t they also preventing the little guys from rising up?
Thought Starter: Where is the line between patenting an app feature and another app copying it? Ex. Snapchat stories and Instagram stories
