Digital consumption journey: When do readers engage with different devices?

The number of mobile-connected devices grew to 7.4 billion in 2014. Are you meeting the demands for delivery and engagement with this growing audience?

Content consumption is fluid and continuous. Readers may begin reading your digital edition on one device and then jump to several other devices throughout the day. As a result, publishers need to make their digital editions viewable from as many platforms and devices as possible, while ensuring a consistent and reliable reading experience. The chart below illustrates how readers switch between devices throughout the day.
