Kids Using Tablets, Apps More

According to research from The NPD Group, nearly 80% of parents who have children between the ages of 2 and 14 have some type of mobile device (such as a cell phone, smartphone or tablet) — a jump of 16% over the previous year.

In 2012, after conducting its first study looking at kids and apps, fewer than half the families surveyed had smart devices, and only about a third of children had used a tablet or smartphone. This year, 51% of children had used a smartphone or tablet, and furthermore, nearly 40% of these kids were considered a primary user of these devices.
