Koreans use mobile apps the most in Asia with an average of 3.3 hours a day, according to App Annie, a San Francisco-based app market data company.
In analysis of app usage around the world for the first half of the year, Korea was followed by Taiwan, where people were on their apps for 3.1 hours on average, and Japan with 2.7 hours. These three countries saw an average rise in usage of 40 percent compared to the same period in 2015.
The increase coincided with a rise in sales of mobile games in all three countries, which were up 62 percent on average in the first half of the year from two years earlier.
