Back in 2007, the word “app” was not a household name. It was virtually non-existent.
In the US, smartphone users spent 127 minutes per day using mobile apps. That’s over one month per year. Imagine that. You spent a month using your smartphone. You could’ve spent a month in a remote island in the Bahamas trying to determine your life purpose. However, if you do genuinely enjoy using smartphone apps profusely, then why the hell not. Maybe you’re better off using these apps than wasting your time thinking.
That’s the beauty of mobile apps, it keeps your mind busy.
The infographic below will assist us in sharing more information about the world of apps. Did you know that usage breakdown of apps goes like this: 43% are on games, 26% are on social, 10% are for entertainment, and 10% are for utilities?
That means, if ever making an app is in your bucket list, you’re better off making a game if you want a lot of people to be spending more time on it.
The average user has more than 100 apps on their device. That’s a lot of apps. For my measly 16gb storage, I don’t think that’s enough.
The adoption and growth of app usage has been growing exponentially. If you were internet marketing people like other advertisement companies, then you also need to have must -installed booster or PPC app plug-in in your devices for 24 hrs monitoring your tasks. It was way back in 2008 when Apple launched its app store, and it only took 9 months for 1 billion apps to be downloaded. Can you imagine that?
By the end of 2013, we would be downloading over 2 billion iOS and Android apps per week. That’s quite a prediction.
