The ratings folks at Nielsen recently took a look at the most popular types of apps among smartphone users and according to their latest findings, mobile gaming is the most popular app downloaded to Android and iOS phones. It comes as no surprise to the popular free mobile app marketplace at appcatch.com where a host of gaming apps have been launched in recent weeks.
The Nielsen report suggests that sixty four percent of users who downloaded an app in the past thirty to sixty days have downloaded a game to their devices. After gaming apps, weather and social networking apps fall in line with music and news apps rating very highly as well.
The survey reported that users with iPhones play games approximately fourteen and a half hours each month, while Android users play around nine and a half hours per month. For appcatch, which is device agnostic, the collection of new gaming apps continues to grow at a similar pace.
