The good people at Nielsen did some measuring of how many apps we use on a regular basis.

You'll probably need a second to think about it; there are lots of categories to consider, right? News, travel, entertainment, finance...

Okay, ready?

We all, on average, we use 26.8 apps per month on a regular basis.

There seems to be a natural cap of 30; no age group uses that many.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
