An Upper Limit For Apps? New Data Suggests Consumers Only Use Around Two Dozen Apps Per Month There are now well over a million mobile applications in both Google Play and the iTunes App Store alike, and growth of those app marketplaces shows no sign of slowing down. However, according to new data from Nielsen out this morning, there may be an upper limit to how many apps people will interact with over the course of a month, and that number – just over a couple dozen – hasn’t grown much over the past few years. That’s good news for the everyday must-have’s, like Facebook, Google, or the default email, messaging, maps or weather applications, for example. According to Nielsen, U.S. iPhone and Android users over 18 have been increasing the time they spend using mobile applications, which is up 65% over just two years ago. What’s interesting is how little the number of apps used per month has changed over this same period of time, however. Says Nielsen, this appears to indicate that there may be an “upper limit” to how many apps users will engage with each month.

Research - Articles - Journals | Research better, faster at HighBeam Research GM recalls 26,582 Buick Lacrosses, Cadillac SRXs for software problem General Motors is recalling 26,582 model year 2013 Cadillac SRX crossovers and Buick LaCrosse sedans to fix a software problem that could allow the vehicles' transmissions to slip suddenly from manual to automatic mode. Information posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website said that the software problem may cause the transmissions to inadvertently shift to sport mode, removing any transmission-related engine braking effect. The NHTSA said that the risks of a crash are increased if engine braking is unexpectedly removed. GM said in a statement that the issue was discovered on a 2014 engineering development vehicle. The company hasn't received any complaints about the problem, it said, adding that it has no reports of crashes or injuries related to the problem. GM said dealers will reprogram the transmission control module for free. The LaCrosses were manufactured between April 25, 2012, through March 6.
