What do we really use our mobiles for?
02 April, 2014 | Mobile / Apps
According to new data from Flurry (an app analytics service) we have spent on average 2 hours and 42 minutes per day on our mobile devices in the first three months of 2014.
It appears that Facebook continues to dominate our usage on iOS and Android, which makes up for 17% of the time we spend on our phones.
Although it still dominates our mobile usage, the time spent is actually down one percent since last year, however the average time spent on social apps has jumped up 4% from 24% to 28% which suggests users are spending more time on other social apps. It will be interesting to see the results next year since Facebook bought WhatsApp, the most popular messaging application for $19 billion.
Of the 2 hours and 42 minutes spent on iOS and Android devices, this is what our time is spent doing:
86% of the time is spent on Apps
- Gaming apps – 32%
- Facebook – 17%
- Twitter – 1.5%
- Social Messaging – 9.5%
- YouTube – 4%
- Other entertainment – 4%
- Utilities – 8%
- Productivity – 4%
- News – 3%
- Other – 3%
14% of time is spent on browsers
- Apple Safari – 7%
- Google Browsers – 5%
- Other – 2%
