Mobile is passing the PC for internet access

By June 21, 2011 No Comments

Mobile analytics firm Flurry released a report today with the chart below which shows time spent on mobile apps is a) growing very vast year on year (88%) and b) we now spend more time on mobile apps than browsing the web (see Techcrunch for more details).


This news comes three weeks after Google’s Marissa Mayer announced that at weekends more people access Google maps on their mobiles than from PCs.

We have all known for some time that mobile is growing fast, but the fact that the cross over point is coming so soon is a bit of an eye opener. I say ‘coming soon’ rather ‘than arrived’ because the data that Flurry published, whilst interesting, is not an apples for apples comparison as a lot of the mobile app activity is games rather than internet access.
