Another great mobile study from the Pew Internet & American Life Project focusing on apps. For today’s Trends post, we are looking at what types of apps people download.
Apps serve many functions, from communication to information gathering, productivity and entertainment. The current survey asked app downloaders if they had ever downloaded apps for any of nine different purposes. Overall, apps that provide regular updates about everyday information (news, weather, sports, or stocks) and those that help people communicate are the most commonly downloaded. –from Pew Report
As government builds apps and mobile strategies, it’s important to understand how people use apps and how government information and services will best meet the mobile citizen’s needs.
