Posted by AnneryanHeatwole on Aug 16, 2010

Today's Mobile Minute brings you coverage on how mobiles are helping farmers in India, jquery on mobile, a comparison of patterns between mobile and desktop Twitter usage, and a mobile-only magazine. 

  • A study by SocialFlow foundm not surprisingly, that mobile Twitter use is much higher on the weekends, compared to desktop usage rates during the work week. The study revealed that nearly 41% of clicks on Twitter links on Saturdays came from mobile devices, and that Friday and Saturday nights have higher mobile usage rates than Sundays or weekdays.
  • Nomad Editions is a mobile-only magazine that will launch in the fall of 2010. The mobile magazine will be designed to support both written articles and multimedia – each issue will focus on a narrow topic such as food or movies, and subscribers can tailor which magazine issues they receive based on their interests.
