New tracker tool reveals Apple's iOS dominates mobile traffic

Real-time Mobile Dominance Tracker shows majority of US mobile traffic originates from iOS devices

A new Android vs iOS real-time tracker shows that Apple's mobile operating system is dominating mobile traffic in the US.

Chitika Insights explains that its Mobile Dominance Tracker "performs an analysis of the unique impressions seen originating from mobile devices within the Chitika Ad Network". The Chitika Ad Network places billions of ads across 200,000 websites.

This data is then displayed in two visual graphs. Chitika's rolling 24 hour pie chart shows that on 24 April, over 69 per cent of the mobile traffic recorded originated from an iOS device with 26.6 per cent coming from Android devices and under five per cent from other mobile operating systems.

Chitika's second graph shows the US mobile traffic share by hour, which, when we checked at midday on 24 April, showed that over 73 per cent of the total mobile traffic recorded by Chitika at 3am originated from iOS devices, with the iPad contributing to this traffic the most.

Apple is expected to report a successful quarter for the iPad in its earnings call later today.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
