Smartphones and tablets seem to surround us. Almost everywhere you look people are using their phones and other mobile devices.
Nearly everyone from your 80 year old grandmother, to your 5 year old nephew are using smartphones. Take note of some recent statistics:
- 90% of adults own cell phones
64% of adults own smartphones
42% of adults own tablet computers
32% of adults own e-readers
These numbers are for the United States alone. The figures worldwide are astronomical.
Why have we seen such an increase in mobile devices? The primary reason is simply that they make life easier.
The wide variety of mobile applications available on smartphones, tablets, and laptops are mind blowing. There is an app for almost anything.
There are mobile applications that can help keep track of your schedule, help with work and school assignments, and that can help you lose weight. There are apps that keep us in contact with friends and family. And there are apps that are solely meant to entertain.
What decides if a mobile application will be a hit or a flop? Is it usefull? Is it different? Is it new and noteworthy?
Some of the hottest mobile applications involve social media. However, connecting people to their loved ones, plus hundreds of strangers, isn?t enough on it?s own. Each individual app needs it?s own hook. It needs to have something that will set it apart as different.
The same can be said about games, photo editors, digital notepads, and others. For mobile applications to become popular they need to be set apart from the crowd. They need to have an original idea behind them.
Do you have an original idea for an app? Have you come up with the next big app craze? Are you itching to get your idea out of your head and into every smartphone that you see surrounding you?
There is real money to be made in mobile applications and application development.
Are you not sure where to begin? That?s okay, you are not alone. Why not get help from someone that has been there before, someone that knows the ins and outs of mobile applications development and database design and development.
If you have an idea for the hottest new app, don?t let another day go by without acting!
