The use of ones phones over “iPods” is becoming very popular. Being able to use a single device to utilize both music and “phone” is very appealing. The less electronics people have to carry with them, the better! Personally, I have not used an MP3 player is quite some time. All my music is played off my phone. It is easier and efficient. Apps such as “Pandora” and “Spotify” make it extremely easy to listen to music, even if it isn’t downloaded on your device. This infographic doesn’t surprise me at all, and my guess is that it will only increase.
