Mobile Growth Explosion Expected to Continue (infographic)
As the smart phone market explodes, it only makes sense that smart phone owners would be using those devices for what they were designed for, and that's to download apps and use the Internet. Not surprisingly, research shows that's just what they're doing, and if you're a mobile developer, seems you're in the right business because while growth has been good to this point with over 30 billion apps downloaded by the end of 2011, that number is only likley to grow as more smart phones profliferate.
As the infographic below clearly illustrates, mobile use is big and only getting bigger. In fact, one data point suggests that by 2014, more people will access the Internet from mobile devices than desktop PCs.
In the end, getting people to your content, whether by app or web site, is only part of the battle. You have to make sure that people can access your content quickly or they'll grow irritated and leave. And people can be very impatient as this infographic shows. Keep that in mind as you develop mobile apps and websites.
