Chart - Mothers’ Mobile Use By Weekday

While mobile consumption varies little throughout the week for the average consumer, that isn’t the case for mobile mothers, details Jumptap in its latest MobileSTAT report.

That spike in activity comes after a relative dip on Thursday (12.4% share) and Friday (10.5%) share, which the researchers attribute to a significant decrease in use of social and texting applications on those days.
