Mobile Application Growth

Here are some interesting figures that I stumbled upon that I feel all of you might be interested in. Smartphone usage, as well as the usage of mobile apps are increasing at a very large rate. A study conducted by MobiLens, found that the number of mobile application users in the United States grew by 28% between April of 2009 and April of 2010. As people get a smartphone they also bring their internet based habits such as social networking, news, sports, and most importantly for Mitek… Banking!

Here are the growth statistics over 1 year:

Social Networking : 240%
Weather : 111%
News : 124%
Sports : 113%
Banking : 113%
Maps : 93%
Movie : 93%
Retail : 91%
Search : 90%
Photo/video sharing : 90%
