I use an Android phone and I have about 50 applications installed on it at any time. While this may seem a little out of the ordinary, I have heard of some digital junkies out there with apps on their devices running into hundreds.
This got me thinking, how many apps can be considered okay to have installed on your device. And of these apps, how many do you actively use?
Of the 50 applications I have installed on my mobile, I only use about 8 actively. I use Twitter the most, followed by Opera mini and some gaming with Line Runner along with checking for movie details with IMDb app. There is Wikipedia which I use most times to settle arguments and also MX Video Player for watching video clips.
There’s ezPDF Reader for reading PDF files on the move, while I use the WordPress and Blogger apps to update my blogs, as well as Mobility of course.
The Android market has the highest percentage of free apps in any mobile application store, so there is a high tendency for you to download a lot of apps that you may not need or use regularly.
In fact, on the Android market, 67% of applications are free compared to 31% on the iOS app store and 61% on the Windows Phone Marketplace.
My question to you is that of the plethora of apps on your phone, how many do you actively actually use?
