As part of Jobsite’s Quarterly Market Tracker (run by HPI) we also looked at the impact of smart phones. Let me share some interesting findings with you:

  • 43% of the UK job seekers own a smart phone
  • 44% of the smart phone users watch news on their smart phone, 38% watch music videos, 25% watch sport clips.
  • Google and BBC top the charts of websites visited via smart phones and therefore equal their rankings in websites visited.
  • Biggest increases (in comparison to visited websites) are recorded for Apple. com, Channel4, SkySports &
  • Biggest decreases (in comparison to visited websites) are recorded for, Yahoo and
  • The iplayer is the most often used video on demand site (by quite some margin), followed by 4 on Demand and then ITV.
