The Rise of the Smartphone Mom [Infographic]

Note: contest Rules below the infographic…

Just 15 years ago cell phones were rare, 3x as big and didn’t do nearly as many cool things. We used our phones just to talk. These days though, more and more people are getting better and faster technology to help them keep up with their busy lives and families.

We use them in nearly every aspect of our lives whether its for home, work, or school. The Modern Mother certainly has taken advantage of this great technology and there are plenty of smartphone apps to help her along the way. Life360 helps keep families stay connected and safe while apps like Cozi assist Mom with organizing and Instant Playdates make scheduling playdates simple, all right from your smartphone!

With great tools like these, it is easy to see why the Modern Mom is depending more and more on her smartphone. We surveyed some Life360 members to ask how they use their smartphones and found some interesting results! The majority (52%) use their smartphone within 5 minutes of waking up in the morning. Even more (78%) say they use it right before bed! We thought it was interesting that 28.7% said they would not give up their smartphone even if they were paid.

The smartphone has become an invaluable tool. Most of us have become attached to our phone all day long. We use it for email, staying connected with family and friends, keeping our lives organized, finding our way around the city–nearly every part of our lives are touched by our smartphones. Does this sound like you too?

We’ve created an infographic illustrating all of our findings and the rise of the smartphone mom. Check it out, after the jump!
