It’s no secret that we’re living in an increasingly digital world. ‘Screen time’ has all but consumed our workplaces, educational settings, and simply put our free time. According to new research by Builder.ai®, over 27% of Americans claim to have over 30 apps on their phone, but more than half of those admit to using only 10 or less. And of those apps being used, over 30% rank social media, entertainment, and finance as the top three types of apps they could not live without.
“This research shows how integrated apps are with every aspect of our lives. We use them to socialize, bank, shop, eat and do business,” explains Sachin Dev Duggal, Co-Founder and Chief Wizard of Builder.ai. “And this is just the beginning – the future of apps is limitless. But there’s this idea that apps are difficult to design and build – it’s only for a select few with coding skills. And this perception restricts creativity and prevents good app ideas from ever getting started. That’s why we started Builder.ai, an AI-powered app development platform, where anyone with an idea can build an app in record time. We’re about making software development accessible to everyone.”
Builder.ai, a leading AI-powered low-code/no-code app development platform, commissioned the research in both the US and the UK to find out how people interact with their apps in 2022. The research explores everything from app usage and favorite apps to their views on app development and the skills needed to create an app.
