Once again, comScore tells us what we are using our smartphone for. Despite a .2% drop from the previous report, texting remains the activity that most of us do on our mobile phone. 74.1% or almost three-quarters of smartphone users in the States at the end of April were working their thumbs by texting. One of the biggest gains from last month's numbers was the increase of .5% of those using their device to play music or play games. The percentage of those who use their smartphone as a web browser slumped .3% to 49%.
107 million Americans age 13 or older now own a smartphone out of a total of 234 million mobile devices used in the States in that age bracket. That is up from the 106 million using a smartphone noted in the report released last month.
