Research published by US-based app analytics firm App Annie has revealed that Singapore mobile users install, on average, 115 apps and use 46 of these – the highest among the countries. This points to a preference for “unbundled apps” rather than super apps being pushed by companies such as Grab and Go-Jek
The firm’s State of Mobile 2019 report indicates that Singapore is a mature market.
Singaporeans, on the other hand, have found their “go-to apps” over time and use them more.Whatsapp, the popular messaging app was the most downloaded and most-used app of 2018 among people in Singapore, according to the report.
