New research shows that shopping on mobile web sites still beats mobile apps

New figures from smartphone owners in the USA show that retail websites are still more popular than stand-alone apps.

Nielsen’s detailed analysis of smartphone usage reveals that retailers’ mobile websites are more popular than their mobile apps, with Amazon having the most popular retail mobile website of all. The top five retail apps and websites combined - Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Target and Walmart - reached nearly 60% of US smartphone owners.

The research also revealed that shoppers preferred retailers’ mobile websites over mobile apps, although consumers who used retailers’ mobile apps tended to spend more time on them.

New research says less than a third of top US online retailers are ready for tablets

51Degrees.mobi strongly believes that one size doesn’t fit all. It’s the reason we created our own mobile device description repository, which enables web designers to create a site that’ll adapt automatically for visitors using mobile phones.

However, it’s important to realise that a choice of just two sizes can also be less than ideal. With consumers now using portable internet-connected devices that range from feature phones to iPads, simply deciding whether or not a handset is ‘mobile’ isn’t always enough.

Decline in Apple's share of mobile internet usage shows the battle to dominate mobile phones and tablets is far from over

51Degrees.mobi, the leading provider of device detection and web optimisation solutions, has today published an analysis of the mobile devices its online partners detected browsing the internet last year.

What do the new domain name suffixes mean for mobile web sites?

If I see a street sign that says The Close, I’d expect the road to be a cul-de-sac. If it’s called The Crescent, I’d expect it to be curved. The Boulevard may well have a central reservation. And the High Street will probably have shops. Not always but often.

It’s the same with domain names. A co.uk address suggests a UK business, while co.il is most likely to be based in Israel. There’s .gov for government, .edu for education and so on. We’ve chosen 51Degrees for our business because the suffix indicates a mobile-friendly site.

But the web has just been shaken up. No longer do you need to settle for a suffix chosen by ICANN, the overlords of the internet. (Not even those odd ones like .coop, .museum and .aero). Instead, you can make up your own domain.

Will the trend at CES for larger screens lead to poorer mobile web sites?

This year's CES event in Las Vegas promises to be the biggest yet. But it's not just the event that's getting bigger.

We've spotted a trend towards larger devices. Sat-nav systems now have wider screens. Smartphones are becoming 'super phones', growing towards the size of tablets. And – despite the occasional rumour – there's no sign of Apple’s market-leading iPad launching a smaller-screen iPad 3 or iPad 4.

But is bigger really better?  Or easier to use?
