A person interacts with his mobile phone on average 4 hours 48 minutes per day.
According to analytics firm App Annie, a person currently interacts with their mobile phone an average of 4 hours 48 minutes per day. This is 30% more than in 2019.
According to report App Annie, in 2021, apps were downloaded 230 billion times, and about $170 billion was spent on them.
TikTok was the most downloaded app, with a 90% increase in time spent on it compared to 2020. According to analysts, in the second half of this year, the active monthly audience of TikTok will exceed 1.5 billion.
The average user interaction time with mobile devices was calculated based on data obtained from ten markets – India, Turkey, USA, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, Canada, Brazil, Indonesia and South Korea. It is noteworthy that the average time spent by users on smartphones in Brazil, Indonesia and South Korea exceeds five hours. Seven out of ten minutes users spend on social networks, photo and video applications, and TikTok is the leader here.
The mobile ecosystem as a whole remains healthy, with 2 million new news apps and games released in 2021, and a 20% increase in the number of apps that have brought in more than $100 million to their creators.
YouTube has become the most popular video streaming app worldwide, with over a million downloads in 60 countries. Followed by Netflix in many regions.
The mobile games industry is growing with users spending about $116 billion on them. The most popular games are Hair Challenge and Bridge Race.
Some users complain about a lot of ads in games, but these ads generate huge revenue – $ 295 billion last year. This proves that concerns about the damage to mobile advertising that Apple’s new privacy policies could cause have not materialized.
Some of the trends identified in the study reflect broader changes, including the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on people’s lifestyles. For example, users began to spend more time in applications for shopping – more than 100 billion hours worldwide. In addition, there has been an increase in the time spent on fitness and health apps. Meditation app downloads have also increased, especially among young people.
The number of spending on dating apps has exceeded $4 billion, which is 95% more than in 2018.
Possibly hundreds of millions of smartphones are at risk. A vulnerability has been discovered that manufacturers are in no hurry to fix
Google, as part of its Project Zero project, has published information about a new vulnerability CVE-2022-33917 that affects millions of smartphones.
The fact is that we are talking about a vulnerability in Mali GPUs, which are used in a huge number of single-chip systems. Google does not specify, but the Arm website has information that the vulnerability affects solutions based on the Valhall architecture. And this means that we are talking about a huge number of graphics cores that have been and are being used in SoCs in recent years, including the latest Mali-Gx10. That is, we are not talking about millions of vulnerable smartphones, but rather hundreds of millions of devices based on SoC MediaTek, Exynos and Tensor.
Arm itself patched the vulnerability some time ago, but the problem is that many vendors still haven’t implemented those patches. This applies to many devices from Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo and even Google itself.
If exploited, the vulnerability is intended to allow an attacker to read and write physical pages after they are returned to the system, potentially gaining wide access to user data.
Elon Musk invited a famous hacker of iPhone and PlayStation consoles to Twitter
Elon Musk hired a hacker who created the world’s first iPhone jailbreak in 2007 and bypassed Sony consoles in 2010. We are talking about George Hotz (George Hotz), known under the nickname Geohot. He also founded the startup Comma.ai, where an autopilot system for cars is being developed.
In 2015, Hotz began building his own autopilot and offered Musk a license. Instead, the businessman invited a specialist to Tesla, but Hotz refused.
A November 16 Hotz wrote on Twitter, which supports Musk’s decisions about the “hardcore mode of operation.” He also stated that he was ready for an internship at Twitter with a minimum pay that is equal to the cost of living in San Francisco. Musk answered and invited the developer to Twitter.
First, the specialist will improve the advanced search in the social network so that users no longer set filters manually.
Earlier it was reported that Musk took up the “fire servers.”
Hackers hacked one of Nvidia’s Twitter accounts to “advertise” Dogecoin
The official Nvidia Taiwan Twitter account has been hacked.
This account has been inactive since 2019, but today unexpectedly posted posts related to the Dogecoin cryptocurrency. Given the recent purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk and his love for this cryptocurrency, the situation looks quite funny.
Be that as it may, the attackers published a record about a certain Dogeathon 2022 event and added a link to the record. Of course, the link was used for phishing.
The account is currently suspended. Nvidia itself has not yet commented on the situation.
