TORONTO - Is it any surprise that in a global comparison of what apps mobile users keep going back to again and again Canadians ranked high for checking the weather?
An online survey with more than 19-thousand respondents in 27 countries conducted by Ipsos asked what kinds of apps people regularly used.
Forty-seven per cent of the Canadians polled said they most often loaded a weather app, which was eight percentage points above the global average.
Forty-two per cent of the Canadian respondents indicated they're just not big app users at all.
In another online poll of just over a thousand Canadians conducted by Harris-Decima for Rogers, smartphone owners had an average of 21 apps on their device and tablet owners had an average of 29 apps installed.
iPhone users had installed an average of 30 apps, which was triple the number for BlackBerry users and 50 per cent more than Google Android users.
iPad users had an average of 36 apps downloaded, which was about 60 per cent more than BlackBerry and Android tablet owners.
