People Now Spend More Time Looking at Mobile Screens Than TV
Americans are spending more time on mobile screens than they are TV screens, thanks to the success of independent app developers.
Time spent on mobile screens has surpassed time spent watching TV, according to data released by the Yahoo-owned mobile analytics service Flurry. Mobile screen time has been on the rise ever since such a thing existed, but in Q3 of 2014, it overtook TV time. The average American now spends two hours and 57 minutes a day looking at a mobile device, while TV-viewing has remained steady over the years at two hours and 48 minutes.
