A similar split occurs in app purchasing habits. iPod touch users are the most prolific and download an average 12.1 apps every month, 1.6 of which are paid. Android and iPhone owners are roughly tied for total downloads at 8.7 to 8.8 per month, but the small size of the Palm App Catalog leaves webOS users downloading 5.7 apps each month. Those with iPhones were much more likely to buy paid apps than Android or webOS users at an average of 1.8 apps versus 1.1 and 0.6 for its opponents.
However, less than six percent of Android, iPhone or iPod owners want an Amazon Kindle, but those with Apple devices were much more likely to want either an iPad or an iPod. Android users are noticeably less apt to want any Apple device, peaking at no more than 12 percent wanting an iPod touch. In usage share, Apple has dropped very slightly from December numbers to exactly 50 percent worldwide.
Most share in other countries remains stable or slightly positive for Apple, particularly in the UK where Apple has an extremely high 79 percent usage share. Android only claims 10 percent of use on the island nation and Symbian just seven percent.
