No points for guessing what the number device will be.

One of the interesting things that running a website like tbreak.com lets you see is how people are accessing our content. It should come as no surprise that the amount of users accessing tbreak.com from their mobile devices has risen tremendously- we get 75% more visitors accessing the site from their mobile device now than we did just three months back. What I thought I’d do in this blog is show what kind of mobile devices are being used.

Not surprisingly, the iPhone proved to be the most popular mobile device accessing tbreak.com with an incredible 36.20%. Another win for Apple is that the iPad came in second with 34.03%. If you add the iPod Touch with 3.53% share, the total percentage of mobile users accessing tbreak.com from an iOS device is an astonishing 73.76%. That means that almost three out of every four people that access tbreak.com from a mobile device use some kind of Apple gadget.

Coming in at a healthy 20.27% is the Android platform which makes up for all the Android Smartphones and tablets present on the market. So between iOS and Android, you have a 94% market share of mobile devices accessing tbreak.com, making pretty all other platforms irrelevant for us to look into. For those that are curious, Symbian came in at 2.43%, BlackBerry at 1.52% and Windows Mobile at 1.33%.

So what exactly were these mobile users accessing? Not surprisingly, the most used page was our movies mobile website that lists movies currently showing along with their showtimes at cinemas across the UAE. The second highest group of pages was again for movies but not necessarily through the mobile site. That was just a tad bit ahead of out tech and gaming websites followed by forums.

So there you have it- a snapshot of what mobile devices our visitors are accessing to visit tbreak.com and exactly what is it that they are looking for from their mobiles.

    Updated the article so show the amount of increase in the last 3 months. The amount of people vising the website from their mobile is about 1.5% which might seem insignificant but the growth rate suggests that we might be looking at a much larger percentage in one year’s time.
