31 Jul What is an App?
Moblie applications, or apps, are everywhere these days. Apps are software applications designed specifically for mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet computers. The popularity of downloading and using apps has grown and expanded over the past decade. While apps were originally created to offer mobile device users a way to accomplish daily tasks such as checking the weather, viewing e-mails messages, and keeping track of the stock exchange, the app world has expanded to include music, games, and gps, among countless other areas of interest. Applications are typically developed for use on on specific devices; for example, iTunes is an application hosting service that can only be downloaded to Apple iPod, iPad, and iPhone products, but the capability to create an app and have it formatted to suit multiple operating systems does exist.
If you have a mobile device and there is some information you want to look up, or a task you need to complete, chances are there is a mobile application that can assist you. Apps direct information into topic-specific software, so they take less time to use than it would take you to search the web or a phone book, or to pull out the crumpled atlas in the back pouch of your car’s driver’s seat. Apps are yet another means to promote efficiency and convenience in a world where the demands for both are steadily and consistently on the rise. If your business has an idea for an app, and the means to create one, CyberLinkASP can offer you an application hosting solution for inserting your app into the daily lives of your customers.
