Over the years, if you observe, the creation and use of mobile apps have increased considerably. With over 5 million mobile apps available for use on both Apple’s app store and Google Play Store, It is crystal clear that the future of the world will see many more mobile apps. Other smaller platforms, such as Amazon App Store have over 400k apps available for people’s use. With Windows Store’s more than 650k mobile apps also available, the world is looking at more than 6 million mobile apps available for use.
However, if you take a look at all these apps, you will realize that not every mobile app among them is famous or successful. Most of these mobile apps are unheard of. Just think about it, count the number of apps, which you know of and use in your daily life. You can hardly count up to a hundred. However, with the increasing use of smartphones, people are likely to use a higher number of mobile apps in the coming days.
According to a research, it was concluded that an average American uses their smartphone 6 to 8 hours a day. Considering the research reports and the increasing screen time of people, it is safe to assume that the demand for mobile apps will only increase in the future.
