  2. How many on mobile? This is a really hard one to pin down and this is because most users are multiplatform; indeed, these users are also likely to be multi-screening as well. Consistency is key and the seamless experience across devices is a must.

  3. What is the website visit rate from mobile vs desktop devices? The figures show that more time is spent using mobiles but the data need careful interpretation due to the different kinds of experiences each is used for. A lot of mobile time is spent on social media and email while tablets and desktops tend to be used more for in-depth reviewing and purchasing; this explains the comparatively lower mobile conversion rates for retail.

  4. App or mobile site? It’s a pretty resounding win for app usage as compared to usage of mobile sites, with apps taking up a whopping 90% of total online mobile time on average.

  5. Ad-spend vs Consumption? In 2015, mobile ad spending was just under half of total digital ad spending. Only a year later, the total grew to 60.4% and now in 2017 the figure stands just under 67%.
