How Many Apps Do You Use Daily?

How Many Apps Do You Use Regularly?

According to a study conducted by a technology research firm, most iPhone users use only five to 10 apps regularly. When I asked, many of you said you have five or six pages of apps on your phone . . . That's 80 to 100 different applications.

Apple's tagline does seem correct. If you can think it, there really is an app for that! And now with the announcement of the iPad, there are only going to be more apps developed — not to mention all of the new Android apps that are being developed and released daily for you non-iPhone users. When I think about it, I probably only use seven or eight applications consistently every day. Do your habits back up the research study? How many apps do you use every day?

cherryblossom — I have a (regular, non-smart, doesn't even have a camera) cell phone but don't use it exceptionally often (it's my only phone, and I hate talking on the phone). My apps are on an iPod Touch =)

I am somehow one of those girls who is all at once a huge geek, but mainly for my computer use, my video gaming, my fantasy reading, my love of geeky things, and love of other gadgets, but i have never jumped very hard onto the idea of cell phones. I dont always want someone to find me when im not at home.

i only use 2-3 a day but have 5 pages of apps. i didn't realize you could unsync them without deleting them from your computer. i'll have to do that.

The only ones I really use daily are Twitterific and Facebook. But almost-daily I use Dropbox, TV Forecast, Shopper, Ultimate Todos, The Weather Channel (when I'm downstairs and want to adjust the thermostat for the night!), and Mint. I have four pages of apps on my iPod, but probably twice that many downloaded. I unsynced a lot of them when I found them less useful, but haven't deleted them since they might be useful again later.

BeejiveIM, NYTimes, PopSugar, Facebook on a daily basis. Or at least an almost-daily basis. PhoneFlicks, Grocery IQ, and Twitterific on a weekly basis, probably. Yelp, Now Playing and Shazam a lot less frequently - on an as-needed basis, but they sure are good to have when you want them. I have one full page of apps I never use. And two mostly full pages of extremely infrequently used ones. Sigh.

I suspected this was the case since iPhone/iPod Touch release. I rarely delete an app once I download it but i only have about 2 full pages of apps. Most commonly I use news and social networking apps. ESPN, LinkedIn, Facebook, DirecTV and WorldMate are my most common but overall i use about 7-8 apps regularly.

I used about 7 apps on a daily basis, mostly Facebook, TweetDeck, The Weather Channel (every morning!), Four Square, Yelp, Bejeweled (for fun), and money apps. I do have apps on there I use regulary but not every day - iPeriod, GasCubby, some local deal apps, and Grocery IQ to name a few. I also have apps that I use very infrequently but are SO GREAT when you actually need them: State Farm's Pocket Agent (in case you get in a crash and your phone still works!), Sound Hound, Flashlight, and Pandora (for road trips). There's definitely some clutter, but most of the apps on my phone I do actually use.

That sounds about right, 5-10 apps. News apps, recipes, dictionary, Yelp, Google, Kindle, and of course Mint. :) Mostly productivity/utility apps. I get kinda irritated with theentertainment ones-- they kill my batt.
