Last month was a very busy month for the Tizen store as lots more games / apps have started being released on the Tizen platform. A recent boost to the ecosystem has been the launch of the world’s first 4G Tizen smartphone, the Samsung Z2, which has helped drive more Tizen apps to the store.

The number one downloaded app from the Tizen Store is still WhatsApp Messenger, which originally launched as an ACL app and then went Native. Leaping to second position is Temple Run 2, one of the highly requested apps by our readers, which plays very well on current Tizen smartphones.

A new app called Xender has made its way to number 3, which is a file transfer and sharing app that lets you transfer items between mobile phones or your PC, kind of works along the same lines as SHAREit. The next few spots are occupied by the usual suspects; SHAREit, MX Player, and Facebook etc. Later down the table we also have Opera Mini Browser, HERE Maps, Action Strike, and Facebook Messenger.

We can see a new game at position 8 called School of Driving, created by Baris Kaplan, which challenges you will some driving missions. This is a relatively small app in status but demonstrates how the Tizen Store lets Independant software developers showcase their apps as well as the big software houses.
