According to Yahoo’s recent Aviate data, Android users have an average of 95 apps installed on their devices. Out of those apps, consumers use 35 apps on a daily basis. Yahoo acquired Aviate back in January this year, before launching the launcher in June.

In a nutshell, Aviate automatically organizes your apps and aggregates your personal and local data. This may include weather forecasts, transit information and calendar events. It adjusts according to time of day and your other activities to bring contextually-relevant information to your homescreen.

The data however seemed rather far-stretched, so I decided to check my smartphone and count the number of apps on my phone. Turns out, I have 96 apps installed on my phone.

The data also suggests that many apps are time oriented like transportation apps spike around 8:00AM to 5:00PM — the most probable time you use GPS for your commute. Weather apps peak during mornings and evenings as people plan their day ahead or the next day. Multimedia apps go up steadily throughout the day as users relax most in the evenings while watching a movie or music. Google maps, clock apps and Facebook peak at the end of the day when people reach home.

Yahoo fails to mention the stats on its own Aviate app but Google Play confirms that it has been downloaded between 1 million and 5 million times.
