One of my favorite uses of my smartphone is to play Sudoku. It’s great for when I’m stuck waiting. I also play when I’m watching television. And I use the smartphone camera – alot. The next step, of course, is to share on Facebook. On occasion, I check my emails.
The result is that I spend much more time using my smartphone than I realize. I haven’t added it up but a report by Flurry, which helps companies build, measure, advertise and monetize mobile applications in the new app economy, says that Americans who own smartphones or tablets spend, on average, 2 hours and 38 minutes glued to their mobile devices. Who knew?!
The findings show:
- More than 50 minutes are spent playing games. Clearly, I have not paid attention to how much time I spend on my phone. It’s a good thing I never downloaded Bejeweled!
- Almost 30 minutes are spent on Facebook. The other social sites account for less than 10 minutes.
- About three minutes is allotted for email, which Flurry classifies as productivity. It’s good to know I’m doing something productive with my phone.
How do you measure up?
