    Reading this makes me realize I do have several sports app. The Score is the best for me.

    My 32gb S7 Edge can’t handle all the apps I need! 64gb should be minimum for all phones!

    • Aidolon

      I’m still using a 16GB Xperia Z3… Even with ‘Move to SD’ capability, low storage blows! Bring on the 64GB and 128GB phones!

    • gremlin0007

      My Z3 compact tablet has 16gb too (did you buy that Rogers promo?) ‘Move to SD’ only works for certain apps an it really blows!! I bought it because Marshmallow was supposed to allow adoptive storage… which they didn’t

    Very few, TuneIn, Spotify, Transit app, MS OneNote/Word/Outlook/Lens, Steam (for 2step auth), Naked Browser (coz Chrome blows), etc.

    Although, like the majority, I have over 30 apps installed on my BlackBerry Android, I regularly use about a dozen. I think regular usage would be a more interesting survey??

  • Nevlam

    WhatsApp
    BBM
    Google Photos
    RBC
    Tangerine
    BMO
    Stingray
    Youtube

    Are the only apps I have installed and I use on the regular on my iPhone.

    Don’t need anything else.

      Hydro Quebec?

    • John Lofwire

      Its an app from Hydro Quebec a Quebec based electricity providers.
      Help me follow up my usages easily.

    • MoYeung

      You track your electricity consumption everyday? Here in the West Coast, people still use paper billing through Canadapost …

    • John Lofwire

      1 time a week the sunday i look at my week not every day lol no paper billing and paying online as well.

  • Omar

    Not including Google and OnePlus bloatware, the apps that I actually installed: WhatsApp, Firefox, Newegg, Twitter, Steam, and Signal.

    I really should stop buying flagships lol…

  • malingerer

    the REAL question is how many apps to you ACTUALLY use!?

  • Tim3Tripp3r

    According to TB I have 405 user apps installed. On a 16GB phone no less. Including the preinstalled system apps it totals about 560. Back when I was using a older Ginger Bread phone that you could pretty much install anything on the SD card I had about 869 or so total apps. The most used are: browsers Maxthon (older version) & Opera, TweetCaster Pro, various weather programs, Titanium Backup, SD Maid, Business Calendar2, Smart News (older version), K@-Mail, PowerAmp, XiiaLive, MX Player. The problem IMO in todays smartphone environment is three fold; 1. Manufacturers are slow to bump up the minimum storage to like 32GB (even for low end) 2. App devs making really bloated apps due to poor coding. Some of the best apps I use are under 2.5mb while other comparable apps take up 25~50 to do the same thing. 3. The SD card, the whole adoptable storage thing never really worked out that well for the end user. There needs to be more effort into a viable SD card option for those that choose to utilize them.

    on my daily work phone I have 2 apps not included with the OS (excel, handheld contact)
    on my daily personal phone I have 13 apps not included with the OS
    on my car mounted phone I have 34 apps not included with the OS
    on my Play phone I have 142 apps not included with the OS, almost 100 of them are games my kids have downloaded.

  • On my 128 G Google Pixel XL, I have 213 apps. I’m not sure how many came with the phone. My Pixel XL was bought from the Google Store and has no bloatware. I use about 25 to 50 apps a day.

    • MoYeung

      25 to 50 apps? All games?

  • MoYeung

    I use 5 to 10 apps daily.
    How people are able to use hundreds of apps are a mystery to me…

  • somebody else

    Only what I use. Mostly those on blackberry 10, some android applications. Google maps runs in the browser (and is exactly what the “app” does too), removing for the need for the app.

  • Jaimé Turner

    I’m just shy of 80 according to my app tray but there’s only 10-15 that I use daily/weekly. The others are intermittently.

  • Lion5

    Wow. I’m shocked to see 283 on my Google Pixel XL. I know I use several daily for various jobs, projects, and fitness. I also noticed the list includes items such as cloud print, carrier services, Daydream Keyboard, some font packs, Gear plugin, etc.
