The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video.

This piece from Trendwatching contains some very valuable information about the future of business and how you can stay relevant by staying informed.


Here are some of the highlights that caught my attention:


Mega-trend of transparency in 2013?


**Brands  must move from 'having nothing to hide' to pro-actively showing and proving they have nothing to hide.


**The perfect storm of consumers' ever-greater lust for NEWISM and niches, the expectation of (instantly!) getting jut the right product, ongoing eco-concerns and the desire for more interesting stories will all combine with the spread of new local manufacturing technologies such as:


  *3D-printing and make-on-demand, to trigger a resurgence in

    domestic manufacturing in established markets in 2013


Mobile Moments


**in 2013, consumers will look to their mobile devices to maximize absolutely every moment, multi-if-not-hypertasking their experiences, purchases and communications...


Eco Trend for 2013


**Rather than being discarded or even recycled (by someone else), these products can be given back to nature to grow something new, with all the eco-status and eco-stories
