New York City, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
There’s no denying the explosive growth in mobile device usage internationally. According to the latest report by Nielsen, people spend more Internet hours on their hand-held devices, tablets, and smartphones than they do on PCs, eReflect reports.
Internet-connected devices are omnipresent. People use their smartphones while waiting for the bus or train, while commuting to work, and during their lunch breaks. The increase in mobile device use suggests that over the course of a single day many people use multiple Internet-enabled devices alternately. An email will be drafted in the morning on a tablet and later will be sent through the desktop computer at work. A Skype talk might start on a smartphone, but end up on a laptop while the smartphone is recharging. However, notes eReflect, at least one device is usually being used nearly every hour of the day.
eReflect reports that as the use of this technology increases, and as people become more dependent on such devices for communication, the need for accurate and efficient typing skills becomes more evident. Touch typing is something that most people use on a daily basis, whether that's for personal or professional reasons. What's more, for many professions, typing takes up most of the work day. Web designers and programmers, typists and personal assistants are but a few examples of jobs where accurate typing skills are essential.
Studies show that people tend to switch from smaller size devices to bigger screen ones when engaged in professional work; this is generally due to the better visibility and keyboard size. A recent finding by a combined Facebook and GFK survey notes that more complicated communication is done using keyboard interfaces (QWERTY keyboards for the most part). Accurate typing makes it easier and more time-efficient for users to complete touch typing related tasks.
In view of the ever-increasing role that technology and the Internet are playing in people’s personal and professional lives, eReflect recommends that everyone learn faster typing skills. With better typing speed and accuracy, it's easier to handle any type of mobile device or laptop computer, and associated benefits such as better time management and error-free documents mean that learning typing is key to keeping up in today's mobile economy.
