Mobile apps have changed the way we

I find it interesting the differences in iPhone users and Android users.
I would also like to see here how much of the

I think this chart kills bragging about 25k, 350k, and 500k apps.
Basically if your smart phone has the top applications of the 19 categories ported to your smartphone your able to do what 99% of the people out there with smartphones do on a daily basis.
