Apple’s quarterly average share grew from 41.6% in the December quarter to 42.6% in the first quarter of 2015, according to the latest data from comScore.

Peering over at other companies like Samsung, who fell from 29.7% to 28.3%, while Motorola dipped from 5.2% to just 5. LG and HTC also saw gains, however. The former saw their share rise from 8% to 8.4%, while HTC crawled ahead a tenth of a point to 3.8%.

Cumulatively, Android phone vendors maintained dominance of the U.S. in the March quarter with a 52.4% share. BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and Symbian devices together represented only 5%, with Windows leading the pack at 3.3%.

comScore also ranked the reach of iOS and Android apps in March among people aged 18 or older. Facebook was the top app at 69.5%, while YouTube and Google Play followed behind at 55.9 and 51.5%.

Apple Maps notably had just a 24.8% share, while iTunes Radio and iCloud (the latter actually being a service) were compiled together at 23.9%.

The data appears to back claims that Apple Maps and iTunes Radio are unpopular products, despite being integrated into iOS.

Google Maps is known to be one of the most downloaded apps on the iOS App Store. However, precise iTunes Radio statistics are not available, meanwhile, but its listenership is believed to be well below multiplatform rivals such as Spotify or Pandora.
