Report: iPhone, Android, Blackberry users use the SAME apps
Many PinStackers and site guests are aware of the fact that, PinStack's goal (Smartphone Professionals Alliance) is not to polarize smartphone users based on what platform they currently use. We believe that at their core, smartphone users share the same basic needs. Thus, we actively support and encourage developers to ensure their apps support ALL the major smartphone platforms.
A report from Mplayit confirms how similar we smartphone users really are. Judging by a new piece of research which used an "app discovery service" on Facebook to track 42,000 visitors and the apps they preferred for a set of "genres", they report that the same apps tend to be popular no matter what the app store (Android Market, BlackBerry App World or iPhone App Store).
Of the apps listed above I have Evernote, Aroundme, Pandora, Shazam, Amazon Mobile and Facebook installed.
From the Android list I have: Pandora, Shazam, Shop Savvy, SnapTell, Facebook, Google Goggles, Google SkyMap, Barcode Scanner
I also have some apps from the BlackBerry and iPhone lists that also have versions for my DROID: iHeart Radio, Seesmic, Amazon, Bump, and eBuddy
Plus about 100 others
Offender Location is on Droid and Iphone/Ipod as well...
It's hard to resist a good App no matter what platform it's on. Apps rule and we love-em.
I hope the developers understand this one.
Make a good App and it will do well on several popular platforms. This should help the Android Market grow.

I like this. I find it interesting that practically the same apps are used across platforms.
