Facebook's Snapchat competitor Poke is continuing to be hammered in the iOS list of top free apps. Facebook released the app December 21 and it made it to number one just the next day. Within a week, it had dropped out of the top 25, while Snapchat actually went up in the listing.

Now a month has passed, so it's time to take another look at how the Poke app is doing. The answer? Not well. The app has dropped down to number 706 on the list of top apps, according to data from App Annie. Snapchat, meanwhile, is still in the top 20 and is currently at number 14, which is quite a bit better than Poke.

Either people are upset with Facebook for trying to push Snapchat out of the market, or Snapchat has done something right, while Poke has something users don't like. If you've tried both apps, which do you prefer more: Poke or Snapchat? Let us know in the comments!
