frederic lardinois How Many Apps Do They Use?About 40% of all iPhone users use about 4 to 6 apps at least once a week. Only about 5% use more than 20 apps per week. Given how many apps most users download per month, these results validate some other reports we have seen which argue that most iPhone apps are disposable and are discarded after a few days of usage.

Over 70% answered that they had already downloaded apps from brands and over 60% said that they would be interested in doing so.As AdMob is more interested in selling ads than revenue from app sales, it makes sense that the company didn’t differentiate between paid and free apps in this survey, though it would have been interesting to see more data about how much users pay for their apps on average and what percentage of the apps they downloaded was free. MethodologyAs always, it is important to note the methodology used for this survey. On August 6, AdMob recruited participants through ads in applications that use AdMob’s advertising technology. Overall, AdMob received 190 responses from these ads, which the company feels is a significant sample size and provides a representative sample of the larger iPhone app market.Admob IPhone Apps Survey 2009View more presentations from guestc0de5a. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology AdMob just released some data about how iPhone users discover new apps in the App Store and how they use them once they have downloaded them. According to AdMob, most users download apps from the App Store directly from their phones. Only 7% go through iTunes to download apps. To find new apps, 62% of all respondents searched for a specific app and 60% looked through the lists of top selling apps in the store. AdMob also found that the majority of users (62%) install between 1 and 6 new apps per month and 22% of all iPhone users download more than 11 apps per month.How do iPhone Users Discover Apps?The data about how iPhone users discover apps is quite interesting. It doesn’t come as a surprise that most users are looking for a specific type of app, but it is also clear that the Top 25 lists in the store play a major role in most users’ purchase decisions. 46% of all iPhone users rely on recommendations from friends, while about 20% find new apps through ads in other applications and about 19% base their download decisions on news articles and blog posts they have read.Given the size of the store at this point, it only makes sense that users rely on popularity as a measure of quality. Sadly, the App Store doesn’t allow users to organize apps by ratings. Judging from this data, any app that becomes a bestseller and reaches the Top 25 can probably look forward to a long life within this list.
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik rolled out the transfer of funds to beneficiary farmers under the Krushak Assistance for Livelihood and Income Augmentation (KALIA) scheme at a rally in Puri on Friday.Stating that the KALIA scheme was being appreciated across the country, Mr. Patnaik said it will be a milestone in Odisha’s economic growth. The scheme covers more than 50 lakh farmer families including share croppers and landless families, he said.The scheme will help farmers improve agricultural activities and development of their families, said Mr. Patnaik, adding that he rolled out KALIA from Puri with the blessings of Lord Jagannath and no one can stop its journey. The scheme will show a new path to the entire nation, he added.More than one lakh farmers attended the rally. The government credited ₹5,000 each to the bank accounts of 12.45 lakh farmers across the State in the first phase during the day.The farmers will get their entitlement of ₹5,000 under KALIA for purchase of seeds, fertilizers and insecticides twice a year — once on Akshaya Tritiya for kharif season and on Nuakhai day for rabi season.The KALIA scheme, launched on December 31, has become popular because Lord Jagannath is called Kalia by the devotees, said Mr. Patnaik.While expressing gratitude to the farmers, the Chief Minister said, “You raise crops and provide food to the State. Your production is offered (to the Lord) as Mahaprasad. You’re doing a great job, a pious job. So, I named this scheme KALIA.” He added that farmers will get the cash assistance in six crop seasons over a period of three years. An amount of ₹10,180 crore will be spent under KALIA. Besides, crop loans up to ₹50,000 will henceforth be interest-free under the scheme. Also 10 lakh landless households will be supported with a unit cost of ₹12,500 to take up activities like small goat-rearing units, mini layer units, duck units, fishery kits for fishermen and women, mushroom cultivation and bee keeping.An annual financial assistance of ₹10,000 will be provided to vulnerable agriculture households and landless labourers. About 10 lakh such households will be covered over two years.
