Ride-hailing and reselling apps are on the rise.

That’s according to comScore’s "2017 US Mobile App Report," which gathers data about smartphone app use among US adults.

ComScore found that the ride-hailing apps Uber and Lyft were among those that had grown most rapidly since 2015, along with the resale apps Letgo and OfferUp.

ComScore measured apps with at least 5 million monthly visitors that have been growing steadily since June 2015. While apps like Musical.ly, Waze, and Uber have all taken dips from time to time, the top 10 apps have at least doubled their unique visitors over the past two years. Some, like Bitmoji, have seen more than a 2,000% increase in users since 2015.
