People are very attached to their smartphones — checking them periodically during the day, probably multitasking at times. Smartphones are setup with applications as well as a mobile browser, but when you want to get an idea of what’s going on from your phone, it’s probably easier to turn to a mobile app instead of browsing the web. Apps like Facebook, Twitter, Flipboard, Feedly, Google+, etc. let you quickly browse headlines to find articles of interest. So what does this mean for the business owner? Several things — having a website that’s viewable on a mobile device is very important, as is creating content regularly that will show up in such mobile apps.

The delivery device has changed, but the concept has not. – The First App You Open in The Morning by MG Siegler
