Mobile computing is taking over the world the way few technologies ever have. Not only is it a safe estimate that more than 95% of the people you see every day have a mobile device on them, but we are about to cross the threshold where there are more smartphones than there are people on Earth.
One of the strongest factors in the growth of smartphones is the power every app gives users. With them, users are able to transform their device into a multitasking wonder with a tap and a swipe to complete. Virtually every company benefits from being on board with this philosophy, translating as much of their service as possible into a mobile app for convenience.
In the following graphic, we’ll provide some numbers that may surprise you about what makes the smartphone such a necessary platform for businesses to develop for, and how you should tailor your app to make sure it gets downloaded and used as frequently as possible. Whether it’s to pay bills, communicate, collaborate, or scan barcodes, many people can’t leave the house without their phone on them, and so it’s more crucial than ever to tap into this hungry, captive audience with your own mobile app.
