Some recent research takes a look at free photo apps, perhaps one of the most popular form of app for smartphone users. According to CatchFree, which sifts through the responses of tens of thousands of users, the most important uses of free photo sites and applications include: adding effects to photos, creating albums, sharing photos. What the research showed though was that users of different mobile devices expect different functionality. For example, iPhone users prefer to add cool effects to their photos, iPad users prefer to share, and Android users overwhelmingly like to add cool effects, much more so than the iPhone users.
Some additional results from the findings:
48 percent said “adding cool effects to photos” was their most useful activity
28 percent said “sharing photos”
24 percent said “creating photo albums”
58.3 percent said they would be “very disappointed” if they could not use their photo app/service on their iPhone.
70 percent said “adding cool effects to photos” was their most useful feature
13.3 percent said “creating photo albums”
13.3 percent said “sharing photos”
55.2 percent said they would be “very disappointed” if they could not use their photo app/service on their Android Phone.
