Apple followers download more apps

Written by Nick Farell


Android users a little more sensible
Beancounters at Nielson have worked out that iPhone owners have an average of 48 apps on their phones, and Android users only 35. BlackBerry users have an average of 15 apps on their phones.

Apparently 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.

It seems that people are using more apps as the technology becomes more established.  Last year the average number of apps on iPhones was 37; Android, 22; Palm, 14; Windows Mobile, 13; and BlackBerry, 10.

The only question is who is using more than a dozen applications and for what?

I would guess the default set of features out of the OS would also have a big factor in this study, if iOS has less features, it would need more apps to satisfy the end users.

I use Android, and I mainly only game on it, because everything else is included for me already in the OS.

Also, how many of those apps are free, and how many are paid?

2 big questions I would have right away to further understand those numbers!

most of the IOS apps are for breaking free from OS restrictions that apple has put on!

Quoting Wolfesteinabhi:
most of the IOS apps are for breaking free from OS restrictions that apple has put on!



And yet they still get disapproved if they don't comply with those restrictions. Jailbreaking doesn't count.

@thematrix606
From your stupid remark it would result that BB OS offers the most ,and users don't need apps to compensate the lack of the OS .......android users are the stupidest people around ,unbelievable ..........only Nick Farrell can gather that amount of stupid readers/comments .
By the way Nick I only visit your posts to vote them down ,just so you know .....
