An interesting article on just how apps are used on iDevices. Only 11% of owners have downloaded an Educational app. but they sure know how to have fun apparently. The average iOS user spends nearly 15 hours a month playing games on their device!http://www.idownloadblog.com/2011/07...rs-love-games/
Note too that Android users download a good number of apps, not really so different from Apple owners.
"iPhone owners have an average of 48 apps on their phones, and Android users, 35, making them the smartphone app kings. . .
In contrast, BlackBerry users have an average of 15 apps on their phones.
That also jibes with what Nielsen found, that iPhone and Android users "use their apps more often: 68 percent of app downloaders with iPhones and 60 percent of those with Android phones reported using their mobile apps multiple times a day compared to 45 percent of app downloaders with Blackberry/RIM phones."
Palm owners came in third, with 21 apps on their phones, followed by Windows Mobile users, with 17.
Still, more of us are apparently getting comfortable with using apps in general. Last year, Nielsen said that the average number of apps on iPhones was 37; Android, 22; Palm, 14; Windows Mobile, 13; and BlackBerry, 10."
