Total Time Spend Using Mobile Web vs. Apps (October 2012)

Saw this today at BI website…

Source: Business Intelligence (BI)

Source: Apps More And More Important Than The Mobile Web (Business Intelligence). Original report by Nielsen.

The above is self-explanatory…

What I find ‘funny’ is that over time I have noticed that Business Intelligence’s opinion on “native vs. web on mobile” swings back-and-forth (based on the top news of the day). In this particular case, all the recent attention to “native vs. mobile web” is thanks to Mr. Zuckerberg.
