The other day we got the basic graph from Google showing that the Android market had served up 10 Billion downloads and then came the 10 cent app sale to celebrate, then this morning Google released an infographic via their Android Twitter account which breaks it down into interesting bits and pieces like the most and least popular times and days to buy apps :

I think i`m a big contributor to the 1.87M hours spent on the IMDB app, I love that app. I think Buzz will be quite disappointed to see that Adele songs have been Shazam’d(is that a word now?) 1,789,955 times.

Daniel Tyson   Ausdroid's Editor in Chief

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Gotta say that I love the Android icon. Google can do so many things with it and it such a great marketing icon. 

By the way is there an app or something that shows the Android icon waving good morning, hello or even g’day when you turn on the phone??

That’s quite surprising considering Australia has, i think, the highest smartphone penetration in the world.

I was but then I remembered that Australia is the holdout for iPhone users.

Probably because the Android market share isn’t high enough over here yet.
