Note: This post originally appeared on The Disruption Institute blog

How much time do you spend per day on your phone?

The average U.S. consumer spends over 3 hours inside apps each day.

Stats aside, all you need to do is look around you in any public setting and see that many are immersed in this little screen we hold in the palm of our hand.

Mobile has fundamentally accelerated how we connect, interact and do business…and it will continue to do so.

What does that mean? Lots of opportunities to build app ideas and start new direction in your career.

5th Best Job In America


Ranked #5 on a list of the “25 best jobs in America for 2016 by Glassdoor”, the median base salary for a mobile apps developer is $90,000.

According to NetworkWorld, it gets better: 2016 vs 2015 salary comparisons, mobile developers enjoyed a 9.2% increase (almost 43% higher than the average for tech).

This puts it in the #4 position out of the 20 top IT jobs.

Apps like Snapchat, Uber, Instagram, Facebook and others continue to demonstrate the power of mobile.

It’s incredible how the mobile era has helped some of these ideas to become platforms for the future, whether it’s messaging, transportation, sharing of content and more.

As ideas both big or small continue to be built on mobile, there are career opportunities for those who want to bring them to life.
