It’s a rare feat for an educational tool to best the social and entertainment apps that absorb so much of our attention. “Every time you see a non-social, non-entertainment or non-gaming app top the chart, I would say that’s a pretty big deal,” says Amir Ghodrati, director of market insights at App Annie.
