Bonny Joy, Chief, Consumer Telemetry Platforms, said: "The three big categories are social, communication, and browsing - together they account for nearly a third of the time spent. Our analysis on the top 25 apps across each of the categories shows games and lifestyle segments are among the most vulnerable in maintaining mindshare as they are quick to come and disappear from our rankings." Barry Gilbert, Vice President, said: "Without doubt time spent on mobile is on the upward trajectory. Our data shows that of the total time spent, the gain is attributed primarily to the increased usage in social, communication and browsing categories." AppOptix addresses the contextual nuances of the consumer behavior through a full-suite of tools, including dashboards, reports, and leading analyst insights on device brands, operators, models, and apps.

Done The Android smartphone for people who are sick of Android smartphones By Ben Zigterman June 11, 2014 6:40 PM 0 shares View photo The Android smartphone for people who are sick of Android smartphones When Lari Numminen and Jukka Kekalainen set out to improve the user experience on Android , they did not expect to create an entire new phone. Instead, they initially built an Android app that would offera simple interface for launching your most-used apps. The app eventually was installed 10,000 times, but the developers realized that people still had to use Androids complex pre-installed apps in addition to their own. To solve this, they decided to create their own phone, which is called the Zilta and will be available in December for 139 (about $189) in Europe. The phone will run a forked version of Android 4.4 and features an extremely simple user interface.
