Mobile is Where It’s At, Even Google Says So

According to the Australian company Search Factory, “How do I Google something” is googled over 4,000 times per month on average. Clearly there’s a little bit of a mix-up happening somewhere, but Google says its coming mostly from mobile users.

The company says that “more Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in 10 countries including the US and Japan.”

With this shift towards mobile over desktop usage, it’s no wonder there are so many mobile applications these days. The Apple Store recorded over 1.2 million apps in July 2014 while the Android Store reported 1.3 million.
