Almost 60% of mobile web users are now as comfortable with mobile ads as they are with advertising in television and online ads. Ads in apps were the most-noticed, found the study. Globally, 54% of users discovered mobile ads when using an app, 40% while using a search engine, 27% on a retailer website and 23% on a video website.

Mobile devices and apps are popular and rule media consumption


Mobile Internet users globally spend more time on their mobile, compared to even TV. There will soon be more people who use their mobile devices than people who use their desktop or laptop computers. This is why internet marketers start to shift their focus from computer advertising to mobile advertising. Too many people are going online using their mobile device and it would be a shame not to use this to improve your business.
