A week or so ago, I was going through my usual routine and looking at our sister site, Mac.AppStorm, when I found an excellent post by Jorge Rodriguez titled, “Our Favorite Apps: What the AppStorm Crew Couldn’t Live Without.” Anytime I read a post like that, I always come away with new apps for my arsenal that I had either never used before or never thought of, and that’s exactly what happened this time.
With that in mind, I decided to “borrow” Jorge’s concept and do the same thing over here at iPhone.AppStorm. I contacted our team and asked them what their favorite apps were. The answers might surprise you.
A week or so back, I tweeted about a statistic I had seen online. The premise was that the average iOS customer spends around $150 on apps. At the time, I joked that I probably spent more than that in a few months, but then I started thinking about it. Frankly, it kind of festered in my head for a bit. Why does that number seem low to me?
So to get it out of my head, I decided to put it to a poll. Please select from the options on the right, and then we can check back on the results later to see how much our readers spend per year.
With the iTunes Store now containing well over 300,000 apps and growing at unprecedented rates, the iPhone has become the source of a fairly new type of serious psychological condition: App Addiction. We here at iPhone.AppStorm are full-blown app addicts and proudly download and test every new toy we can get our hands on.
Today we want to gauge your level of app addiction with a simple poll that asks how many apps you download per week (not counting standard updates). Are you a casual downloader or an obsessive app-crazed lunatic!?
After voting in the poll, leave a comment and let us know how many of these are paid apps and how many are free. Do you stick to free downloads or are you spending serious amounts of cash to build up the ever-growing kingdom of Apple?
Earlier this week, Apple dedicated their homepage to a special announcement that something big was coming from iTunes. They hyped it as a day we would “never forget.” Speculation immediately ran wild, everything from an early launch of the Mac App Store to a cloud-based iTunes service was postulated.
We now know that the big news was about the Beatles finally coming to iTunes. This represents the end of years of legal struggles for Apple, but is it really a day you’ll never forget? Cast your vote and let us know! Then leave a comment below and tell us whether or not you’ve purchased any iTunes Beatles music.
Here at AppStorm we want to make sure we’re continually improving our content so that it’s relevant to our readers. One huge way you can help us do this is simply by telling us what types of apps you like best.
Take a second and vote for your favorite category from the App Store. I’m personally addicted to productivity apps but you might be more of gamer or maybe a music lover. If we didn’t mention your favorite category, simply write it in at the bottom.
If you’d like to help us even further, leave a comment below ranking your top three to five favorite categories. Feel free to also mention what types of apps you’re sick of reading about!
