I'm using Indesign. For work I have been asked to put together a magazine to be distributed digitally. As I'm in the planning stages and figuring layouts I'm trying to determine if I should just design all single page layouts for digital or if 2 page layouts where images and text are spread across both pages works. I understand that for I-pads there is no issue. But for those reading on their phone they will not get the impact of 2 pages spreads. Should I just design the two page spread and ignore those who might not get the impact of the two page spread?

I set up as single pages.

You can then use Acrobat to set the display of the PDF to "Spreads with a Cover" by default. That allows the PDF to open as you want on large screens, but also allows the user to change how the PDF displays if necessary.
