With so many different apps out there you could be forgiven for being confused, but in reality it is still Google Apps that appear to be maintaining its lead over many comparable applications.
What’s more, recent research by Nielsen suggests that application downloads have jumped a massive 28% for mobile smartphones.
I should think business people looking for mobile apps will be a large proportion of this increase.
This information appears to show something else, namely that businesses and individuals alike are moving away from mobile web to mobile applications, with Gmail and Google search still among the top five. The other three are Facebook, YouTube and the Android Market.
In associated news, recent research also seems to point to Backupify as the leader in cloud storage. Backupify just happens to be the interconnected service for Google‘s applications.
Google released information last October, which, at that time, showed around15 million users at educational establishments across the globe using its education service, and who would, in turn, access Backupify as part of their storage requirements.
The figure also represents an 80% increase on the previous three years.
According to experts, Backupify offers educational organisations a simple and user-friendly administration panel. It also allows multiple users, something that may not be the case with other similar systems.
This multiple user ability is also useful for all concerned – students, teaching staff and office staff don’t have to either wait for someone to finish, or ask permission to access vital information.
