What's driving the force?

Looking at this growing inclination, the first and foremost question that might probably knock the walls of your brain could be the force that's driving the trend.

Is it the luxury or the need of time?

Personally, I won't agree to the force being a luxury. Apps have made their presence in almost every stream. They assist you in your professional and personal life, they take care of your health and entertainment section both. Not only these, they also guide you in improvising your hobby and profession.

A recent study unveiled that 50% of smartphone users grab their smartphone soon after waking up.
This 50 % include teenagers and professionals both. Well, if this doesn't amaze you, another research claims that around 87% people will always have a smartphone at their side 24*7 and 365 days (366 in the case of leap year).

Why have they become the need?

If you are one for the kind who prefer to have a brief glance, here are the three reasons that transformed mobile app development to need:

  • A friend: Mobile applications stay by your side like a friend. If you are reserved by nature and don't open up quickly (which most of the people are), mobile applications are your true mate. You can spend time with them, share your part, without any complaint or fear.
    Making this better is Artificial Intelligence, which allows you to even have a virtual friend who can talk to you anytime and anywhere.
  • A philosopher: One in a million becomes a philosopher, and it's really tough to meet them and have your piece of information/counseling. Mobile apps avail you with these at your fingertips.
  • A Guide: These applications house an entire universe inside them. Starting with the making of galaxy till the microparticles around you, you can have everything through them. While on one side they are helping the corporates, on another they are assisting housewives and teenagers with their day to day activities and hobby sessions.
