    Notes: The overall amount of time spent with mobile applications grew by 21% between August 2013 and last month, per Localytics data, with that increase spurred largely by an increase in the average number of app launches per month. The analysis indicates that music apps (79%) experienced the largest increase in time spent, followed by health and fitness (51%) and social networking (49%). Separately, the study notes that while social networking apps are launched the most times on average (25 per month) among the categories identified, users spend the least amount of time with them, at just 2.5 minutes per session. Beyond social networking apps, sports and news apps see a high number of monthly launches, while music and entertainment enjoy the highest average session lengths.
