Which iPhone map app do you use the most? graph of japanese statisticsMobile Marketing Data Laboratories recently conducted a pair of parallel surveys into smartphone map app usage and smartphone schedule app usage.

Demographics

Both surveys were conducted between the 18th and 21st of December 2013. The map survey had 556 respondents, and the schedule one 560. All the respondents were pre-screened as smartphone users, and for the map survey 232 people, or 41.7% were iPhone users, and the remaining 324 people (58.3%) were Android users. No further demographic information was provided.

In my previous team we used to get a handful of free desktop calendars from a translator dispatch company, but now I suspect that with my employer’s heavy emphasis on compliance issues, these are treated as potential bribes or another method of receiving favourable treatment thus we are forbidden from accepting them.

On my home PC I occasionally download (and wifey does so often) wallpaper with a one- or two-month calendar featuring either Pinky or cute Neko no Kimochi cover models, although if you’re not a member you need to do a short survey before you get to the download page, I’m afraid, and the free samples for non-subscribers don’t have dates on them.

In January I translated an identical set of questions.

I’m a big paper and pencil person myself, although I do occasionally download some calendar wallpaper for both my computer and my mobile phone from Frente Spiral.
