Alamofire (an all-Swift library) is linked in 31% more of the top 200 free apps than AFNetworking (an all-Objective C library). I guess Swift is still making headway into Big Apps...

Also, 6 apps are still using ASIHTTPRequest, despite the last release being 5 years ago.

Worse still, 3 apps use a combination of ASIHTTPRequest, AFNetworking, and Alamofire - that's a library that was abandoned 5 years ago, an Objective-C library, and a Swift library. Oh man.

Keep in mind that some SDKs have internal dependencies. Those apps could just be linking a set of SDKs that happen to include those 3 networking libraries.
