How many of the apps on your phone do you actually use? For me I would’ve guessed about 10. A recent report found that US smartphone owners have an average of 92 apps installed on their phone, yet use 30 per month and 9 per day.

I just switch to the new iPhone and was flipping through the open apps on my old phone. I was surprised to find that I use a lot more apps than I thought…
