This Pinch Media study monitored 30 million apps in the iPhone App Store and found that most apps are in use by fewer than 5% of iPhone users after a month has passed since the download.
Personally, I’ve downloaded some apps that sit on my home screen without being used, but I appreciate most of my apps and use them regularly. For example, I’ve used all of these in the last week:
What about you? Are you in the majority of iPhone users who don’t use their apps a month after they’ve downloaded them? Or do you make good use of most of your apps?

@Seattle Thanks, good to know.
@Shelly Yeah, I’ve let my iPhone clutter up with apps before. It’s definitely a good strategy to delete unused ones right away.
I have to admit – I use the apps quite a bit. But, if I download something that I find out later I don’t like – I delete it right away. So I’m left with a collection of apps that I DO use regularly.
Of my dozen or so friends and associates that have iPhones, we all have about 20+ apps and average 2-3 per week. Apps are inexpensive, most do the job or are entertaining and the auto updates are super.
