Asia’s love for mobile and the Asian penchant for owning multiple devices is well documented. But today’s multi-device owners in Asia aren’t just mobile — they’re post-mobile. Rather than a one-way move onto their smartphones, data shows that today’s multi-device users are using all of their screens in complex, interconnected ways based on convenience, habit and preference. A trend we can only expect to accelerate as devices — from smartphones to smartwatches and other wearables — proliferate.
Our latest Cross Screen User Behavior Report analyses over 850 billion campaign data points from Appier-run campaigns across 11 markets in Asia, from the second half of 2015, to help better understand user behavior across devices.
Key highlights include:
- Interacting with 3 or more devices is the norm for Asia’s multi-device users — in fact over half of Asia’s multi device users are switching between 3 screens or more throughout their day.
- Mobile-first doesn’t mean mobile only — even in a region as famously “mobile first” as Asia, PCs continues to be an important screen for Asia’s multi-device users, generating over 50% as much usage as smartphones.
- Behaviors across screens are varied and complex — users move between screens according to convenience, habit and preference and device usage varies accordingly on any given day based on a number of factors, from time of day, day of week to gender and market.
- Majority of multi-device users show a preference for different ad formats on different screens — nearly 7 in 10 of Asia’s cross screen users interact somewhat or completely differently with ads across different screens, displaying different behavior or favoring different ad formats and subject matters.
