    Default Flurry: iPad Users More Engaged with Apps Than iPhone Users


    According to the latest report from Flurry, mobile apps are a lot more engaging on the iPad than the iPhone.

    “Overall,” Flurry reveals in a blog post published Friday, “iPad owners in our sample spent 42% more time in apps on their devices than iPhone owners during May, but that time varied significantly by category.”

    When compared to iPad owners, for example, iPhone owners spent more than 13 times us much time using Navigation apps. They also spent more than five times as much time using Health and Fitness apps, Flurry adds, pointing to more iPhone-friendly activities like tracking walks, runs, and bike rides.

    Although the iPhone retains some app engagement advantages over the iPad (at least with regard to the nature of some apps), Apple’s tablet remains the biggest driver of total app engagement.

    “The app categories for which average time spent on iPad exceeds that for iPhone are Education, Newsstand, Games, and Reference. Again, more home-oriented activities,” Flurry continues, sharing the infographic posted below.

    Umm, it isn't a phone.

    If you aren't spending time on apps on an iPad, your staring at it do nothing. I would certainly hope people use app's on the iPad more frequently than an iPhone, because if you aren't, what did you buy it for?

    In other news... iOS users purchase more apps from the iTunes App Store than Android users.

    What do you mean using as a remote for iPhone camera apps? This sounds interesting.

    I stopped buying apps for my iPhone when the iPad came out. Most of the apps I have on my iPhone are photograph apps and a few puzzles games and a few card games.

    I use my iPad all of the time so yes it has a lot of apps on it. But I also have movies, music and podcasts on it also. Matter of fact I keep running out of space on it. When I buy a app I buy it for my iPad and hardly ever my phone.

    Obviously people are going to spend more time staring at a 10" screen opposed to a 4" screen. Much easier on the eyes
