Stat Shot: iPhone Users Are App-Hungry

When it comes to the number of applications smartphone users download, iPhone (s aapl) owners by far have the biggest appetite. A greater percentage of iPhone owners download more apps than other smartphone users, according to a study by Compete.  Some folks are debating whether or not this means people use the iPhone for business or for fun, but that’s not really the point.

The point is that with the App Store and smooth user interface on the iPhone, Apple has made it both easy and fun to find and use more applications. So who cares what you do with it? Apple has created a package of hardware and software that works — something that was sorely lacking in the mobile arena.
