Brits have an app-etite for saving money


lg_chocolate_new_lg-bl40_2Yes, we know, that pun’s awful. In our defence, we did nick it off the PR email. Anyway, new research has found that the U.K.’s most wanted apps are those that save you money.

The survey, carried out by LG to help promote its new LG Optimus (GT540) phone, found that Brits spend roughly £422.2 million on new apps every year, and those most requested are discount apps or those that have voucher codes for money off products and services.

The top five most requested app types are:

1. Apps that save you money (25%)

2. Apps that save you time (9%)

3. Apps that help you stay physically and mentally fit (9%)

4. Apps that help you shop for dinner (8%)

5. Apps for gaming (6%)

Mr. Burns would be proud.
