Study:  We Spend Nearly a Third of our Waking Hours Staring at our Phones
—Averaging 4.8 Hours A Day on Apps

A study finds we spend way more time staring at our phones than we likely should.

App Annie’s latest “State of Mobile” report has found that consumers, globally, have spent a record 3.8 trillion hours on their phones in 2021, averaging 4.8 hours a day, or nearly a third of their waking hours.

App Annie notes that 2021 was “record-breaking,” as consumers continue to embrace a mobile lifestyle and move away from big screens.

In particular, the video sharing app, TikTok, saw an increase of 90-percent use globally, excluding China, compared to 2020.

Another interesting find: globally, consumers spent $170 billion on apps, which is up 19 percent from 2020.
