Quotes from Lexi Sydow:

“We saw record app downloads, 255 billion new app downloads, so a lot of user acquisition happening, up 11% year-over-year.”

“On a per user basis, that’s where it’s really interesting. Globally, among the Top 10 mobile markets, we saw 5 hours per day spent on average person per device.”

“Within the download space we saw a lot of more utilitarian, sort of  tools and anti-virus apps, productivity tools, VPN and downloaders.”
