Stats that you will find include the most popular time to download apps, which countries download the most, which categories are the hottest, how many miles have been navigated on Google Maps, and how many cans have been knocked down playing Can Knockdown.

    I’m wondering if the 466,216 miles run by fieldrunner are scaled miles or actual miles.

    Hmmm…does this not include Verizon since they “don’t” use Carrier IQ?!?  Hahah

    Love it.  Great post!  Productivity app DLs are at 4.67% and Games are at 25.6%  We now know how much work is really getting done out there on those ‘Smart Phones’

    The Quantity is great, now it’s time for the quality to catch-up.

      In an unbiased way. Seriously, not giving more props to Android or less to iOS. I don’t see the iOS applications/games being much higher quality at all. They’re pretty equal. Some are worse some are better. One example, I was playing with Spotify on my i*ad2 and the interface is almost unbearable compared to Android.

        You are just blind. IOS apps are 10 times better as far as glitching goes. Content is one thing, just plain don’t work, well that Android.

        i agree in regards to apps, but iOS definitely gets the lion’s share of the top-tier games first and often exclusively. i really wish android had the game support of iOS.

          • i just shaved mine this morning. i went from august 28th till today and decided to go with the stache

  • It’s great to see the growth of Android over the last 2 years. I remember when I first got my OG Droid and was jealous of some iOS apps but there isn’t that much anymore that’s exclusive to iOS that I find myself missing out on.

    Wonder how many of those were “Big Breast WallPaper” or a virus… JK of course!

    Interesting to see this compared to my own reports. For me, the time users download apps the most is Friday at 5pm. Monday at 4am sounds right for the least amount of downloads. The UK and Germany are at the top. I guess I better get some Korean translations.

    I’m going to start downloading at 4 am on Mondays.
