Mobile App Useage Exploding in the USA

If these are bad economic times and people need to tighten their belts just to get through, mobile app fans aren’t listening. A new survey has pointed out the fact that on average  20 million US residents access mobile applications between the hours of 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. at their favorite app store. These numbers come from the mobile app analytic provider Flurry.

Putting things in perspective shows how incredible the amount of mobile apps usage actually is. The number of people looking at these apps per day is the equivalent of all the people who watch the season finale of ‘American Idol’ each year. These statistics aren’t just about one of the big three app companies either.  Estimates put the number of Apple, Google and Android devices used across the United States to access mobile applications at 110 million.

Telecoms analyst Ovum has even more big news about the mobile application market and they are telling us that downloads are set to spike and grow an unbelievable 144% this year alone. Total downloads are set to be 18 billion by the end of this year.

Although many people are turning their backs on conventional entertainment to embrace mobile apps and free apps, even more statistics demonstrate the fact that there is a peak time for mobile usage just like with television. The usage according to Flurry peaks at around 7 p.m. each day.

Of course, these numbers show no sign of slowing down or reversing in the near future with the amount of downloads and new applications that are being developed every day. While most industry analysts don’t expect the Apple itunes store will be toppled anytime soon from the top of the heap as far as mobile applications go, everyone is expecting Google to come up with innovative new ideas to take a run at the top spot.

There doesn’t seem to be any area of American life that mobile apps aren’t affecting either. A recent report from Veterans Affairs says the top brass there is considering an in-house mobile application store so veterans can buy the apps that most interest them.

Veterans Affairs Department Chief Information Officer Roger Baker said he hoped at least some of the apps that would become available would come from an open source project that detailed health records.
