Since 2007, here at Waracle, we’ve been at the heart of mobile app development in Scotland. So it’s great to see recent figures suggesting that when it comes to app development, and mobile, Scotland is leading the way forward. We’ve been busy for over 5 years developing mobile apps for a range of platforms including iPhone, Android, Windows, Blackberry and iPad.
Scotland has the highest mobile data usage consumption in the UK
Scotland has the highest mobile data usage consumption in the whole of the UK. This is phenomenal news for silicone glen residents and as the demand for apps and mobile related services thrives, it’s wonderful to see Scotland so neatly positioned for the future. It’s not just smartphones running iOS or Android, we’re also leading the charge when it comes to tablet consumption (that’s iPad’s, not the type you buy in the pharmacy). Furthermore, iPad ownership in Scotland has actually doubled in less than a year.
50% of Scots have Smartphones
Nowadays more than 50% of Scotland’s population own a smartphone, with the majority of consumers opting for an iPhone or Google Android powered device. With such rapid growth within the mobile sector, it’s essential for businesses in Scotland to understand the potential of engaging customers through smartphones and tablets. Having developed mobile apps for some of Scotland’s biggest brands, we’re proud to be part of a nation forging ahead in the digital age.
