"Since 2005, Myxer has cataloged demographic, handset, and carrier data for downloads served by our platform. This data set covers over one billion downloads and 35 million unique individuals, and is currently growing by some 90 million downloads each month. The overwhelming majority of Myxer users are in the US.
By mining this data, we are able to uncover what we believe to be interesting trends in user behavior and preferences, demographic changes, and carrier and handset usage. Myxer’s BoomBox Report is our way of sharing this information with the industry as a whole.
For this month’s report Myxer used PollDaddy, an online polling and survey tool, which gathered responses from 1,049 Myxer users."
