The 'Rule of the Thumb'

Percentage of one-handed smartphone users who consider thumb-reach when positioning their apps on the phone screen:
  • Age 18 - 34  (61%)
  • Age 35 - 54 (59%)
  • Age 55+ (46%)
More time is being spent on smartphone apps, but most of that time is concentrated in the highest engagement apps owned by a few of the largest internet companies. The smartphone app now accounts for half of digital media time spent and is still growing strongly, but not at the rate it once was. Large internet companies command the majority of app time, so it can be a challenging market for lesser-known brands. While we haven’t yet reached ‘Peak App’, the market is definitely tightening, making it more difficult for up-and-coming apps to breakthrough. App publishers need to rethink how to break through to the consumer’s screen. People aren’t downloading as many apps anymore. They increasingly put those apps into folders, and they are less likely to allow push notifications, making it harder than ever for apps to be seen. Breaking through means having the rare novel app idea or relying on traditional marketing and advertising for distribution.
