Mobile users spend more time using apps than surfing the net, a new study has found. Research of App analytics provider Flurry found that average mobile users spend 2 hours and 42 minutes per day on a mobile device, out of which only about 22 minutes are dedicated to web surfing where mobile apps get a huge share of 2 hours 20 minutes.

The changes indicate that the mobile browser has become just “a single application swimming in a sea of apps,” Simon Khalaf, CEO of Flurry, said. According to TechCrunch, different categories of apps were also examined to find out the leader in grabbing people”s attention and the results are in favor of gaming apps, dominating the chart with a time-share of 32 percent. Facebook stands strong at the second position claiming 17 percent time-share.
