List of non-voice uses of cellphones I found this list in the story:
Taking pictures and texting are the big non-voice uses.
Which types of apps are being downloaded? Here is a list of which types of apps are the favorites:
Re: List of non-voiice uses of cellphones How can only 29% of users use an app, but 34% play a game? Or any of the other functions higher on the list that "use an app"?
For the purpose of this report, apps are defined as end-user software applications that are designed for a cell phone operating system and which extend the phones capabilities by enabling users to perform particular tasks.So basically, "using an app" only counts if the user downloaded and used an app in addition to using the apps installed by default. Seems shortsighted and misleading.

said by openbox9:I think it is best described as of the 29% of users that actually do use an app, 34% of that group play games.

Re: no surprise to me I believe the survey defines and app as one that wasn't installed by default by the manufacturer/carrier.

Re: my mother pays for local only on att landline $30 with taxes Have them call the phone company and minimize the features/extras. I recommend keeping a landline for 911 as it works more reliably than any cellphone or VOIP 911. With a landline, when you dial 911, even if you are unable to speak, 911 responders will show up at your address! They KNOW exactly where you are calling from! With any cellphone, you have to provide your location, and many times, your call has to be transferred to the correct 911 center for your location...VOIP can be as bad or worse, depending on the provider...
Re: Landline? What's that?

Someday I'd love to dump the phone altogether and use Skype or another app over VOIP with my iPad, but I'd need a real ISP to do that.
landline is old but its RELIABLE, especially in areas with weak coverage or apartments that have no signal. Not everybody has femtocells and their use is somewhat limited (reliance on home broadband, GPS signal through a window.
