U.S. adult spends 2 hours and 42 minutes per day on mobile devices

We’re now six years into what app analytics provider Flurry calls the mobile revolution and as you might expect, the average consumer in the US is spending more time than ever using mobile devices. According to the firm’s latest report, daily time spent using a mobile device has risen to 2 hours and 42 minutes, an increase of five minutes compared to last year’s findings.

Last year, on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the mobile revolution, Flurry issued its five-year report on the mobile industry. In that report we analyzed time-spent on mobile devices by the average US consumer. We have run the same analysis, using data collected between January and March of 2014, and found some interesting shifts that we are sharing in this report. Time spent on a mobile device by the average US consumer has risen to 2 hrs and 42 minutes per day from 2 hrs and 38 minutes per day in March of 2013. Apps continued to cement their lead, and commanded 86% of the average US mobile consumer’s time, or 2 hrs and 19 minutes per day.
