Sarah Houghton – the LibrarianinBlack reports on Richard Le and Tom Duffy’s presentation at Internet Librarian, 50 Great Mobile Apps for Libraries. This is a very exciting list divided into iOS apps and Android apps. I was surprised to see many of these. The post also lists some of the recent stats on mobile use, such as:

  1. 46% of American adults own smart phones
  2. By 2016, 10 billion will be in use worldwide
  3. By the year 2013 there will be 81.4 billion apps
  4. The average download of apps per device is 51
  5. The average time spent on apps per day is 81 minutes
