Use of food and beverage apps jumped 135% at the start of the Super Bowl last year (6-7 PM Eastern) compared with average traffic for the same time block on previous Sundays.
Usage of travel/transportation apps spiked before and after the Super Bowl last year compared with usage from the previous five Sundays.
