According to the results of a survey contained in Compete’s latest Smartphone Intelligence report, iPhone users are far more likely to have downloaded and installed third-party applications than users of other smartphones. The survey, conducted during October and November and consisting of 940 respondents, found that 34% of smartphone users have not added an application to their devices, compared to just 7% of iPhone users. In addition, 72% of iPhone users said they had installed five or more applications, compared to only 23% of other smartphone users; more than a third of iPhone users (34%) said they had installed more than 15 applications.
