Every day, 250 million apps are downloaded worldwide, on average.

However, while the number of downloads increased, user satisfaction with apps decreased.

The technology website EH conducted a methodical study, which was based on an analysis of three million tweets on Twitter and found which apps are the most hated in the world?

Both specifically, and by category.



The site's people collected three million tweets mentioning apps of all kinds: social media, dating, gaming, entertainment, cryptocurrencies and money transfer.

Using artificial intelligence that analyzes the tone of each tweet (positive, negative or neutral), they calculated and found which apps received the most tweets with negative content in each country.

Some of the results are surprising, some are not.

Let's start with the answer to the question: Which app is the most hated in the world?

Roblox.

The multiplayer online game platform is the most hated app in 21 countries.

Second place - Tinder, which is hated in 19 countries.

The application of the Radite forums website is leading in hatred towards it in 17 countries.

Disney Plus is in fourth place, being the most hated app in 11 countries in the overall ranking, and closing out the top five is Snapchat, which is "only" hated in nine countries.



Nominally, by the way, the most hated app is the dating app Hinge, with 34.4 percent of all tweets towards it - negative.

The most hated in Israel is...

An interesting conclusion is that the hatred of apps has a cultural bias, and in neighboring countries there is hatred for the same apps.

For example, in the rich English-speaking countries, such as the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia, Tinder is the most hated application.

By the way, the hatred for dating apps is actually a unifying factor between East and West, everyone hates them.

For example, Tinder is also the app that Iraqis hate the most, with 71.4 percent of negative tweets about it there.

Similarly, she is also the most hated in Lebanon and Qatar.



In South America, the most hated applications are those of e-commerce.

In Chile, Peru and Uruguay, the most hated app is Amazon.

In Brazil it is eBay.

Clustering is also evident within categories.

The most hated apps in categories like entertainment, dating, and crypto tend to cluster in geographical proximity clusters.

For example, in France, Italy and Spain, the dating app Plenty of fish is the most hated.

Voyager is the most hated crypto app in China, Mongolia and Japan.

And what is happening with us?

Not surprisingly, after the disappointing launch, the most hated app in Israel is Disney Plus (by the way, we are not the only ones, Disney Plus is the most hated in 18 countries in the entertainment category, second place after Steam, and right after Netflix, with 17 countries).

In our neighbor Cyprus, the most hated application is Tik Tok, and in Jordan - the game Clash of Clans.

There is no data on Syria for some reason.

In Iran they hate Netflix the most (is it because they are American?) and in Saudi Arabia they hate the Facebook app the most.

Our neighbors to the south, the Egyptians, are part of the global trend, and there too, they hate Roblox the most.
