This is an extended version of the paper [K] of the author. The average formulas on the circles and disks around arbitrary points of Nevanlinna counting functions of holomorphic self-maps of the unit disk, given in terms of the boundary values of the selfmaps, are shown to give another characterization of the whole class or a special subclass of inner functions in terms of Nevanlinna counting function in addition to the previous applications to Rudin's orthogonal functions.
