Shopping: How Parents Can Use Mobile Apps in the Grocery Store
There are tons of mobile apps to help parents with just about everything during their day. That goes for grocery shopping, too. Recent studies from Harris interactive show that parents are more active on mobile phones than non-parents across all aspects of digital shopping. Parents are also twice as likely to download an app from their favorite stores or use their phone’s GPS to find a nearby location.
