Users spend 2 hours-plus a day toying with mobile apps
Time spent on the mobile Web declines, while app use rises with games, social networking, and messaging being US users’ biggest go-to categories. C/net reports.
New data released by mobile analytics firm Flurry shows that average US users spend 2 hours and 42 minutes per day on their mobile devices -- 86 percent of that time is spent in apps and 14 percent on the mobile Web. While time in apps is increasing, mobile Web use is on the decline.
Users are spending more and more time on mobile apps, but the increase of time spent over last year has been relatively small. For 2013, Flurry reported users spent 2 hours and 38 minutes per day on their mobile devices -- that means just a four-minute increase to this year.
