Why Mobile

America's Mobile Audience relies on free social media apps as their primary source for entertainment and news.


In 2016 the number of households with only smart phones elapsed the number of households with landlines.


In 2017 the number of smart phones in the US was over 220 million, and 2 billion globally.  


In 2019 the number of daily hours the average individual spends viewing their smart phones is projected to eclipse television. 

For Museum's to be sustainable, they will need to engage this Mobile Audience.

Q3: When should a museum consider a mobile app?

If your museum wants to increase its membership and new visitor numbers, if you are planning a new exhibition in the next 3-4 months, and/or if you have a library of existing audio guides/tours we can help you.  


The museum's role in publishing the mobile app is to focus on creating meaningful, engaging content about your collections, research, restoration work, and exhibitions.  In other words, museums focus on what they are really good at, but now for a larger audience. 


The curators' role is to be part of the creative staff, and take credit for the great work they are doing. EDL's role is to run the presses.
