#1: Google, 93 million+ mobile visitors per month
No investor or techie should be surprised that the 900-pound gorilla of mobile apps is Google (NASDAQ:GOOG). After all, the company dominates online video and online advertising and online search. There’s no reason its reach shouldn’t translate to mobile — especially considering its Android operating system that is starting to give Apple-powered devices a run for their money. Leading apps are what you would expect — Google search software, Google Maps for directions and mobile YouTube applications. But also big on the list are Gmail and the Android Market for all Google-powered gadgets. Even Facebook can’t compete with a lineup like that.
