Last month, Austin-based Famigo conducted a study and analyzed information from 1000 random usage samples from Famigo Sandbox (its free Android app) and uncovered some surprising insights into how families are using mobile media, according to Sarah Combs, spokeswoman with Famigo.
Famigo compiled the infographic below from the findings of its study.
“A few of the key takeaways are that: 88% of the apps that families download and use are free, revealing a reluctance to pay for content. Casual and puzzle games are the most played in terms of app category, followed closely by education apps. Angry Birds, the most well known free casual game, remains the most popular among families,” according to Combs.
