A study conducted by Ipsos and Google shows that 66% of mobile device owners use their smartphone or tablet to access the internet on a daily basis. We use our phones to look up all sorts of information whether it is to find businesses in the local area, to research products that they want to buy, or to log into the social network of our choice.
