App Annie Spotlights the Top Apps for Connected Devices

Connected devices may come in small form factors like wristbands and watches, but they are shaping into a trillion dollar market. These devices are fueled by consumer-facing mobile apps that act as communicators between us and our devices. With all these “smart” devices popping up, we felt it was time to analyze what apps are making waves in the industry -- and which devices will shape the industry in the years to come.
