“For all those reasons, publications should be thinking of themselves as tablet-first products….”

“For all those reasons, publications should be thinking of themselves as tablet-first products. Increasingly, that’s where reading is being done, even though only 34 percent of Americans own tablets. That number will increase in the coming years as tablets get cheaper and more powerful, and as people increasingly buy them instead of laptops. Indeed, over the last year, the total amount of time that people spend in tablet news apps has increased by 14 percent, according to recent figures from Localytics. Pew Research has shown that 56 percent of the country’s tablet owners use their phones for news, and the research firm Foresee.com has found that people prefer mobile devices overs PCs when it comes to reading news. The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute says that, thanks to mobile devices, increasing numbers of people are canceling their print subscriptions and switching to digital subscriptions.”
