New York, Sep 26 (IANS) Of the dozens of apps that you have already downloaded on your smartphone, how many do you use regularly? It’s actually fewer than you realise, a new study suggets.

Smartphone owners in the US only use about three apps frequently, Fortune cited the study by internet analytics company comScore as revealing.
