Fifteen years ago you probably wouldn’t have believed us if we told you a device no bigger than the palm of your hand would have the computer power to play HD videos, navigate you across the country, and secure your sensitive data with the tap of a finger.

Oh, and you could call your mom on it too.

According to a smartphone user report from Pew Research Center, “Nearly two-thirds of American adults (64%) now own a smartphone of some kind, up from 58% in early 2014…Four smartphone features — text messaging, voice and video calling, using email, and using the internet — stand out as the most widely used out of the eleven apps and features evaluated in this study. Nearly all of the smartphone owners surveyed (97%) used text messaging at least once over the course of the study period. Text messaging is followed closely in popularity by voice calling (engaged in by 92% of smartphone owners), using the internet (89%), and using email (88%).”

Today, smartphones and mobile devices have become such an integral part of life that they even function as mini-offices that you can use to access information anytime, anywhere. Mobility is changing society at a rapid pace and offers many businesses numerous benefits they never even dreamed of just over a decade ago.
