Facebook is the most popular app in the U.S.

Ever wondered what is the most popular app in the U.S. today? Sorry, it isn't Candy Crush - not even close. You've probably guessed it: Facebook. That's according to comScore, a leading U.S.-based Internet analytics company.

comScore recently published its U.S. Mobile App Report, detailing in-depth analysis of the mobile app market. In doing the research, comScore included factors such as the percentage of time, mobile app growth, and how iOS apps differed from its counterpart on Google Play.

The report highlights the overall active usage of the apps and not just the number of downloads. Facebook dominated the market with 115.4 million unique visitors in June. Facebook's 160 million app users in the U.S. covers 72 percent of the chart.

Trailing in second is Google's YouTube app with 83.4 million unique visitors in June. Google is also the number one mobile app publisher. That's because Google Play, Google Search, Google Maps, and Gmail are in the top 10 as well.

The controversial Google+ social platform landed a good spot at number 16. Facebook's Instagram sits at the number eight spot while Twitter is at number 14. The top 25 mobile apps are as follows:

1. Facebook

2. YouTube

3. Google Play

5. Pandora

6. Google Maps

7. Gmail

8. Instagram
