Take our Apps Survey for a chance to win a $100 Best Buy Gift Card!


I may be over thinking this, but how are you defining third-party apps? I think of it as applications not available on the app store. But can see how it could be apps like Falcon Pro to provide a service to Twitter. It's not built by the service itself, but a third party vendor. Thoughts?

3rd party apps are any apps not made by Google, apple, blackberry or windows.

I took it as apps not made by Google or the phone manufacturer. I took it to mean apps I had to seek out and install on my own, but it could really be taken to mean several different things.

On the question about apps and platforms... Where we are at today with smartphone technology there should be no exclusives unless developed by to is creator (apple, Google, bb, win) which still sucks. App developers should be making apps for all 4 major OS's at the same time (or at least in a considerable decent window to one another).

Well, I completed the survey, but I'm not sure if the submission was successful. My work apparently blocks talkmobile2013 website(which is where I'm sent when I click "done"). :-/

Am I selfish in hoping that a ton of people don't fill this out in hopes of upping my chances at winning? Lol I can't help it!

I feel like this survey actually asks useful questions, unlike many others. It was quick and to the point, and I see it providing some good statistics later on.

One of the first questions in the survey was possible to misinterpret or my morning coffee hasn't kicked in and I misread it.

If I am a crack flasher, I potentially re-download all of the apps I want installed on a new flash of the phone/tablet. I believe the number you wanted was how many new apps have you downloaded in the last 3 months.
