If you are getting tired of all the apps you have downloaded on your smartphone, you are not alone.

Pew Research says new data shows while consumers love downloading the latest apps, their fondness for using them fades quickly.

Sixty eight percent of smartphone owners open five or fewer apps at least once a week; 17 percent don't use any apps on their phones.

There are currently about one million apps available for the top mobile operating systems.
