Survey: Games are the number one use for tablets photo



It's hard for me to think of many uses for tablets outside of gaming, since it seems I could do everything more easily on a computer without having to paw and claw at an expensive touchscreen. Games I can understand, and so it's somewhat telling that games are the predominant focus of tablet users.

According to a survey, an overwhelming 84% of owners use tablets for the playing of games, while 78% use it for searches and info gathering. 74% of them also use there little rectangles to send emails, and if you really care, 61% read news, 56% use social networks, 51% enjoy music and video content, 46% use them for e-books, 42% shop and 19% have "other" uses (porn, obviously).

Google's AdMob conducted the survey, polling 1400 tablet owners. The results also show that 43% spend more time with tablets than with their computers, while a third use it more than their televisions. 68% use theirs for at least an hour a day, and 83% use them primarily at home. 

So yeah, tablets!

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more

Review: Jump'N'Shoot Attack

Four Christmases ago, I joined the smartphone brigade when I found an iPhone 4S nestled under the tree. Oh boy! I thought. Now I can grab all those iOS games that people can't shut up about! And for a couple of years, I was a...more

Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: The Sword in the Darkness

Telltale seems to be getting into the swing of things with Game of Thrones, in more ways than one. For starters, it only took seven weeks since the last episode for this one to come out. If Telltale can keep up that pace, the...more
