Chart of the week: The smartphone duopoly Back in 2010, the smartphone market was quite fragmented. BlackBerry was still going strong, Symbian was present on millions of Nokia phones and Samsung was still experimenting with its own operating system, Bada. For app developers and publishers alike, it wasn’t easy to decide which platforms to support and which ones to ignore. Nowadays, things are much easier as there are basically just two relevant smartphone platforms left. As our chart from Statista illustrates, devices running Android and iOS accounted for more than 99 per cent of global smartphone sales in 2016, according to market research firm Gartner. All other platforms, including former market leaders BlackBerry and Microsoft’s Windows Phone have been rendered all but irrelevant.
[Chart of the week] Smartphones: Where do you read your news? Many people aren’t necessarily on the go when they use their mobile to keep informed. According to a recent report by Reuters Institute (http://www.fipp.com/news/insightnews/reuters-digital-news-report-2017), 46 per cent of respondents who use smartphones to access news do so in their bedroom. Albeit other places are pretty popular too. As the below chart shows, many people also browse the news in their bathroom - or rather sitting on the toilet (36 per cent). The smartphone becomes a truly mobile informational device when people use it to access news while commuting (42 per cent). This basically indicates that the smartphone really is a constant companion we have with us no matter where we go.

Chart of the week: App usage still growing, but unevenly n the ten years since the inception of the smartphone, the handy programs that go with it have shown to be a staggering growth market. As research by Flurry shows (http://flurrymobile.tumblr.com/post/155761509355/on-their-tenth-anniversary-mobile-apps-start), app usage is still on the rise. For 2016 usage measured in sessions showed an average year-on-year growth of 11 percent. However, growth has become uneven and for the first time Flurry recorded some app usage falling off for certain categories. The world of messaging & social (Facebook, WhatsApp et al.) is still showing strong growth. Measured in time spent messaging & social grew 394 percent. Sports apps (e.g. watching live sports) came in second best. Health & fitness apps, of the likes that guide you through your exercises or track your achievements, fared well too. Other app usage is down. Most notably in the field of personalisation that allow you to customise your mobile. The darling of the mobile industry, gaming, lost out too! Also, the world of news & magazines is showing signs of slight cooling. “With news and magazines sessions down 5 percent and music, media and entertainment up only 1 percent, it’s safe to say that social has absorbed the media industry.” Flurry tracked 940,000 applications, across 2.1 billion devices, in 3.2 trillion sessions.

Chart of the week: Users engage with long form on mobile Since the dawn of the digital age news publishers have been on the front lines, having to adapt to the online world fastest. Although it’s still hard to make money from it, online has turned out to be the best way to disseminate news. News can be accessed fast and easy online, especially on mobiles. However, there is one long-standing prejudice against the online news consumer. He has a reputation for having a very short attention span, which in turn means that the shorter the news piece, the better. ‘Make it Twitter-length’, seems to have been the new motto. This isn’t the whole truth. Research by the PEW Research Center in partnership with Parse.ly shows, that the long-form has gained traction on mobiles. http://www.journalism.org/2016/05/05/long-form-reading-shows-signs-of-life-in-our-mobile-news-world/pj_2016-05-05_long-form-01/ On the one hand, there are much more short-form news articles than long-form pieces online. (Of the 74,840 articles accessed for the study only 24% were long-form, ≥ 1,000 words). But the average number of unique visitors (complete interactions) for the long-form is on par with that for the short-form. The extra length doesn’t put users off and they like engaging with the long-form, well, for longer. “When it comes to the relative time consumers spend with this content, long-form journalism does have a place in today’s mobile-centric society,” the PEW report concludes.
