A look at global behavior around the usage of apps revealed variations on opinions of children with smartphones, drivers and mobile platform loyalty.

When asked the age at which it’s appropriate for a child to receive their first smartphone, 75 percent say somewhere between the ages of 12 and 16. However, two percent of Germans say a one-year-old child should have a smartphone, eight percent of Americans say the right age is 10, and six percent of people in the U.S. and Spain say parents should wait until kids reach the age of 18 before giving them their first smartphone.

Apigee, the API company, recently announced the findings of its 2013 Mobile App Behavior survey of over 760 smartphone owners across France, Germany, Spain, the UK and U.S., conducted online in February by uSamp. “The findings of the study show that people all over the world are becoming increasingly intertwined with their mobile apps and are demanding more from them," said Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO.
