Active online consumers want a great app

The Pacific and South Atlantic regions of the United States have the highest levels of digital engagement as well as the highest levels of interest in a “super app” – a tool to integrate all aspects of their digital lives in a single, central location.

Conversely, the Midwest and Mountain regions have the lowest levels of numerical engagement and interest in a super app.

When six U.S. regions are compared to each other, the level of digital engagement correlates quite well with the level of interest in a super app, according to PYMNTS’ latest edition of The ConnectedEconomy™ monthly report, which is based on a survey of of approximately 2,500 American consumers.
