RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
OK. Let's stay with tablets, the digital kind. The kind we used to download apps. Our last word in business today is: apps aplenty.
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
With the popularity of tablets and smartphones, people have been downloading about 10 apps per month onto their devices.
MONTAGNE: Great news for businesses, perhaps, except research from the business consulting firm Nuance Enterprise shows that the vast majority of those apps are quickly abandoned, especially those that are free.
