In Asia/Pacific, Screen-Switching Is Strong (And Don't Discount Desktop)

More than half of Asia/Pacific multi-device owners switch between three or more screens, according to cross-screen ad startup Appier.

In fact, 49% of multi-device owners in this region use two devices; 29% use three; and 22% use four or more.

And don't forget about desktop just yet. The report found PCs are still important, generating about half as much usage as smartphones, even though smartphones easily outnumber PCs. And each unique PC is used about four times as much as each unique smartphone, the report found.

 -- Half or more multi-device owners switch between three or more screens in Australia, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan.
-- In Australia, 59% of multi-device users switch between 4 or more screens.
