    “How we


    Music” isn’t in any way, shape, or form mentioned in this graphic.
    Let me just open up my phone to the ‘Discovery’ folder that is currently full of music applications and name them for you.
    Pandora, Songza, Soundcloud, Shazam, SoundHound, Soundtracking, Twitter Music, Indie Shuffle, and NPR Music.
    Maybe you should retitle this one. I was hoping to discover something interesting.

  2. Surprising that only 26% of study respondents have music store apps on their smartphones. After all, iTunes is default on all iPhones.
    According to Gartner, iPhone market share is around 18% currently. http://www.businessinsider.com/iphone-market-share-stuck-at-18-2013-5
