For the first time ever, Americans used smartphones and tablets more than their PCs to access the internet last month.

According to data from Com-Score, mobile devices accounted for 55-percent of internet usage in the United States in January.

Apps made up 47-percent of web traffic and mobile browsers eight-percent.

Personal computers represented 45-percent of web traffic.

The shift follows a historic freefall in PC sales last year.
