Although the market for app development seems very overcrowded, which in some ways it is, Vog Calgary Apps is bringing a different strategy to clients and customers. We are showing local and international businesses that app development is not as expensive and some would have you believe.
Sadly, the app development market has been over priced for many poor quality apps. It’s no wonder that the current view from many smaller businesses is that there is no need to have an app which represents their business and products. However, in the next 5 years the app market is going to explode and having a business app will be just as essential as having a website.
Over the next 5 years, up to 98% of collage and university students will have a smartphone. It is estimated that over 110 million people in the US alone use smartphones with this trend expected to only rise.
With figures like this it is easily foreseeable as to why every business will need a smartphone app. Unlike a website, a smartphone app is better suited to fit the smaller screens of iPads, iPhones, Droids and other smartphones. Further more, apps are more versatile and can have direct communication with app users. Push notifications, an exclusive feature of mobile apps, will further push the interest of businesses looking for different marketing avenues. A key to all apps developed for business will be the features it provides users while opening many new doors for direct customer service. Sending notifications of new deals, coupons, promos and special offers will dramatically change how marketing is done.
Forget the days of billboards and radio ads. The new media that will continue to open new possibilities will be smartphone apps.
The days of laptops are nearing the end of their life cycle with many people switching to tablets instead. Looking at the home computer, those days are finished with many looking at stationary computers as a relic.
As the next 5 years approaches, the cost of app development will increase due to the demand and need for these apps. At the same time, developers of smartphone apps will also increase but will not be able to keep up with demand. Since the demand will be greater then the supply, costs will rise to reflect this.
