I don't have enough information to say that all Latin-americans are different from the residents of the Northern hemisphere, but I can say that I am very happy that we here in the South we are more connected in the music and to collaborate so that all can escape the traps of the traffic that appear in our day-to-day. Waze and Spotify are two great examples of the evolution of the population of the big cities.
Spotify decreases the amount of piracy and allow artists to continue earning money for their creations, in addition to placing within the reach of any songs that don't necessarily would be easy to access. Already the Waze – like some other apps – deal to help the population to escape from traffic jams caused by the excess of vehicles, accidents, or actions slot of some agent government.
If you do not have any of these programs, run and install them where you can (PC, tablet, smartphone).
Nine out of every 10 Latin americans have or frequently use a smartphone or tablet. It is the one that points to the first edition of the research IMS Mobile en LatAm, conducted by comScore in partnership with Internet Media Services (IMS).
The study, conducted in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Mexico, states that 99% of the respondents have apps installed on their devices. The survey aims to map the behavior mobile population of Latin America and its relations with applications to popular mobile, such as Waze, Foursquare, Twitter, Netflix, Spotify, LinkedIn, Crackle and Swarm.
Participants in the survey claim they have an average of 18 apps downloaded on their smartphones. More than half (60%) of people cite Twitter, LinkedIn, Spotify and Waze as apps that are essential to the day-to-day.
