People in the US spent more than twice as much time accessing the internet through smartphone applications than via desktops, notes comScore in a presentation on location data. In fact, smartphone apps accounted for a majority (59%) of time spent with digital media during that month, with another 7% of total digital media time going to the smartphone web.
Collectively, that means that smartphone apps and web comprised roughly two-thirds (66%) of digital media time.
Adding in tablets’ 8% share of time, and mobile devices are now up to three-quarters (74%) of total digital media time in the US.
