Change is constant and it isn’t surprising to know that it applies in the ever-changing world of technology and business. There was a time when business meant setting up shop at a location convenient to your target audience. Later on, with the introduction of Computers, and the magic of the Internet, we saw the birth of Online based business forums. We saw applications, and websites setup specifically to target the online audience, but the actual offices still worked up to an extent.
Then, with the introduction of portable computers, people were hooked to the online world, preferring to be connected to the internet whenever possible. By carrying laptops, because it helped them stay connected to their work, and it gave the business owners a chance to stay connected with their customers.
Businesses had a huge change as well. From traditional services, on-demand services took precedence. E-commerce sites provided the convenience that travelling long distances to shop did not. You could sit at home, browse online, and buy what you want, and it would be easily delivered to your door-step.
But we didn’t stop there, did we. Technology, and the ever-inquisitive human mind gave us the smart phone, and that is a maze in which we are still stuck in. The smart phone, as addicting as it may be, has given life to various small-time entrepreneurs, be it commercial, or social. Smart Phones meant no more carrying your heavy laptop around, and getting all the benefits and more, at the click on a button.
From connecting friends, to buying that electronic device on a flash sale, to booking a cab or even your flight, everything is now happening in a jiffy, at any time of the day or night. This is the beauty of Mobile Applications. These Applications now rule our day-to-day lives. Right from setting up multiple alarms a day to remind us of many things, to storing our list for grocery shopping later in the day, to reading the news on our way home, and switching on the torch light when there’s no current, Mobile Applications be it for any use, have taken up a big part of our lives, and will continue to do so.
