Library mobile trends uncovered by Boopsie Analytics:
• Mobile library app adoption is increasing: in Q1 2014, the number of apps downloaded per month has increased by 12.93% across all libraries using Boopsie’s platform, bringing the average monthly downloads to over 300 new app downloads per library.
• As compared to Q2 2013, in Q2 2014, the average number of monthly unique users increased by 23.14% across all libraries using Boopsie and the average number of queries made by library users increased by 26.44% over the same time period.
• Most large and mid-sized public libraries serve their patrons through Boopsie at less than $0.10 per month, especially relevant because delivering digital services increases circulation without use of physical library resources like personnel, facilities and other costs related to in-library services.
• iOS users tend to be more avid readers and users of free public library services.
• Device usage: while Apple devices still retain the majority of the market share of library apps, iOS increased 15% over the last year; Android increased their market share by 22.54%, while newcomer Windows 8, increased their market share by 74.15%. Blackberry (RIM) lost 234% of users over the same period.
