I am William Rose working with Script-technology pvt. Ltd India based, as a Developer your article is awesome and very helpful for me.
If you agree, I am going to come up with some more statistica, that is an additional motivation to make your website responsive.
I heard that more people owns smartphones than toothbrushes)))
Wurt. That’s pretty intense. I’ve been reading a lot about the role of technology in the developing world, but this stat takes the cake.
1) 70% of mobile searches lead to an action within the hour.
2) 40% of people will choose a different search result if the first is not mobile friendly.
3) 45% of users ages 18-29 use their smartphones for searches every day.
That’s a lot of searches. That means SEO only goes so far. You have to make sure your site looks awesome when all those users find it on a smartphone.
4) Payment processing company Square passed 1 billion transactions this month.
In which mobile devices replace cash registers.
5). 1 in 3 kids in the UK owns their own tablet.
Kids in the UK are now less likely than ever to have a TV in their room. Instead, they’re all getting tablets. If you want to appeal to customers for generations to come, you’ll want to cater to a crowd that learned to use a touch screen before they learned basic math.
6) Facebook’s Messaging App has over 1 billion users.
Apparently users are willing (very willing) to deal with signing away their privacy. That’s nearly ⅙ of the world talking to each other on a mobile FacebookTo my mind , if thinking about it more, we can find way more statistics that proves why so much people use responsive design for their websites, whatever cms they are using: drupal cms, wordpress, Joomla or they are hand writing code in html.
