PR Peeps Poll: 18% haven’t downloaded any apps to their SmartPhone

The periodic PR Peeps Poll results are in and suggest  that of those PR folks  who own SmartPhones, 18% have yet to download any apps.

What does that mean?   Perhaps the ultimate app, the web browser, already comes pre-installed on every phone and covers most people’s basic browsing needs.

Of the 82% of SmartPhone owners who HAVE downloaded apps onto their mobile devices,  the largest group–53, or 36%–have added “5-10” apps to their device.   Another 31 folks, or 20%, have downloaded “10-20” apps, while 39, or 26%, have installed “more than 20” apps onto their SmartPhones.

Interestingly, the largest percentage of those who took the poll–79 out of 228–did NOT even own a SmartPhone.   We especially appreciate their participation.

Here’s the details of the March Poll:

How many apps do you have on your SmartPhone?*
  • 26, or 18%, said  “Haven’t installed any yet.”
  • 53, or 36%, said “5 – 10”
  • 31, or 20%, said “10 – 20”
  • 39, or 26%, said “More than 20”

*We removed 79 of those polled who said they did not have a SmartPhone.
