I got this information via email on how Pinoys use mobile apps and online apps. I made sure from the source whether I could share the information. Glad to pass on the information to help readers understand where the Mobile Apps market is like and where it’s headed. There are two studies in the files below. 

The first is how Pinoys use Mobile Apps. The second is What Pinoys do Online.
