Remember?  "There's an App for that"

Any given day if you have a few seconds to spare, take a look around you.  Chances are, you’ll see at least one out of every two people using a mobile phone, sometimes in ways that you can’t imagine.  Now expand your thoughts a bit and think about the 6 billion people on our planet, 70% of who have mobile phones.  It’s no wonder that mobile software applications or “apps” have exploded on the market around the world.App plaque, app icon sign

Apps are a daily part of our lives.  Currently, there are 330,000 apps on the iPhone app store, 220,000 apps for androids and 57,000 apps on Facebook.  In addition, there are 200,000 developers who are actively working on and creating new apps. This phenomenon has led to a rapid increase in app icons development for businesses and startups.

Apps have redefined the way that we interact with technology in our lives on a daily basis.  Mobile technologies such as the iPhone, iPad, and other types of smartphones have changed our society and personal environment in unique ways.  According to a Pew Research study, 1 in 4 U.S. adults utilize apps.  The most popular applications are entertainment apps such as music, food, travel, sports and games.  Apps are also utilized for news, banking, weather, navigation and maps. 

  • Virtually everything in our society is currently being designed around apps. 

Think about all the ways people are interacting and want to interact with apps.  Imagine an app that has the ability to locate your whereabouts and guide you to your car which you just couldn’t find? What about an app which knows your likes and dislikes? Or an app that can change the mood of a room or reorient sound? The possibilities are endless in app icons development for businesses and startups.App Check In Signs, app plaques,   

So what does this all mean for a startup or small business? This means that you have to adapt and utilize a bottom-up approach with the customer in mind at all times.  Your app has to be customized to meet their ever changing needs.   You’ll have to be willing to experiment and take more risks.  The future of app icons development for businesses and startups looks bright.  The challenge lies in being able to identify trends and stay abreast of competitors by catering to needs of hyper-sensitive Digital Natives.  Remember, the future belongs to those who prepare for it.
