The Rise of Apps Culture

"Apps" (which is short-hand for "applications") designed for use on cell phones have been growing in popularity over the past several years. They can be used to buy airplane tickets, check travel times, look up the definition of a word, track calories, play solitaire, and so much more. This report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project looks at how adults are using these apps, and how their use might change over time. Released in September 2010, the 46-page report is based on a national sample of 1917 cell-phone using adults. The report notes that while 35% of adults have cell phones with apps, only two-thirds of those who have apps actually use them.
