Mobile has today become the center of a lot of things that we do in our daily lives. Right from watching videos and playing games, to shopping online, a big chunk of the Indian population turns to their smartphones.
In fact, according to a StatCounter estimate, over 71% of the internet traffic in India comes from mobile. This growing mobile internet user base in India has led to many E-commerce companies increasing their focus on mobile. The likes of Myntra and Flipkart already have plans to go mobile-only, moving away from the desktop experience completely.
