Moms are busier than ever and are turning to their mobile devices to help make parenting easier. Studies show, 70% of moms reported using their smartphone or tablet to shop. An even more staggering one-third of moms said the devices accounted for nearly half their shopping time or more.
While shopping, 60% reported that retailer apps were the most popular apps to help them make purchase decisions, and:
- 47% said they used social networking apps when deciding what to purchase.
- 20% said product review apps and deal site apps were also useful.
The most important factor when making a purchase decision for nearly half of moms is getting reviews and recommendations from other moms. Convenience ranked second, cited as the most important factor by about one-quarter of moms.
