Yahoo claims the average Android user has 95 installed apps, but only uses 35


Yahoo

The Yahoo Aviate Launcher is known for dynamically changing your homescreen based on content and apps that matter to you. It does this by tracking the apps you open and when you use them. Today, Yahoo showed off some of the data that it has gathered from its users and figured out some interesting information about app usage among its users.

According to the report, the "average Android user" installs 95 apps, but only uses 35 of them on a regular basis. Obviously the "average" user according to Yahoo is only based on those using the Aviate launcher, so the information is only based on the 1 to 5 million users who have downloaded Aviate and use it on their device.

The vast majority of the other data is made of things that you probably could have guessed, like transportation app usage peaking at 8AM and 5PM, weather app usage peaking in the mornings and evenings, media and video apps peaking after dinner, or phone and SMS used most during work hours.

While this information may not be useful to the general user, it will definitely help Yahoo improve its own apps and services.
