SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apteligent, the leader in user-centered mobile app metrics, today announces its most recent data report, “Monthly Data Report: Google IO May 2016.” The new report analyzes the Android ecosystem by reviewing fragmentation, Google Fi device usage, crashes that are isolated to specific devices and operating systems (OSs), Android TV versus Apple TV usage, and which device manufacturers are the quickest to push out Android updates to their users.

“This report was designed to provide insight into the Android ecosystem specifically,” said Andrew Levy, CSO and cofounder of Apteligent. “Android isn’t as fragmented as once was believed. In fact, its operating system distribution is now similar to iOS. This insight can be helpful to developers and product managers as they continue to create mobile apps, but it’s even more helpful for organizations because the analysis of their current apps will help to make future business decisions.”

Key findings from the report include:

  • 93% of all Android traffic comes from KitKat, Lollipop, and Marshmallow, which is relatively similar to iOS, where 97% of traffic comes from iOS 8 or iOS 9.
  • Apple TV is used twice as much as Android TV

  • Android TV is used much more consistently throughout the week vs. Apple TV, which sees 30% spikes on the weekends.
  • Android TV apps are twice as stable compared to regular Android apps.
  • Android manufacturer update speed analysis reveals:

  • The fastest manufacturers: Samsung, LG, Sony, and HTC
  • The slowest manufacturers: Amazon, Motorola, and ZTE
  • Apteligent’s data is benchmarked across tens of thousands of mobile apps representing hundreds of millions of application launches.
