26% of mobile apps used just once
Survey: fire and forget prevalent amongst iPhone, Android games
Figures by analyst Localytics have suggested that some 26 per cent of mobile apps are used only once following their download.
The survey, covering iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7, found that the number of one-use apps had fluctuated between 22 and 28 per cent over the last year.
While this does mean a good 70 per cent of apps are used repeatedly, if accurate Localytics' figures present a new context for another recent survey which found that the average iOS device owner had downloaded some 60 apps.
