Ipsos conducted an online survey to find out what kinds of apps people regularly use. The survey had more than 19,000 respondents in 27 countries.
Weather app topped the Canadian polls with over 47 percent of votes, eight percent above the global average. To compare, only 22 percent of users in Saudi Arabia use a weather app frequently but in South Africa, 56 percent of users pulled up a weather app more often.
The Canadian polls also showed about 33 percent of users regularly use a banking app and about 25 percent used music and news apps more often. Canadians were tied for third-lat globally when it came to reading the news through an app.
Forty-two percent of Canadian respondents said they were not big app users at all and they don’t use any of the eight types of apps that researchers asked them about.
On Friday, another poll was conducted by Harris-Decima for Rogers, which says almost half of all Canadians have their mobile device within arms reach 24/7.
