Experts in the industry are suddenly throwing around the term “mobile app revolution”, saying that the unprecedented explosion of the mobile app market is comparable to the industrial revolution. It seems mind-boggling, but it’s true.
The numbers don’t lie. Nearly 103 billion apps were downloaded last year, which was up by 59% from the previous year.
Those numbers will only grow exponentially for 2014. With 86% of Americans owning a smart phone, and millions of others owning secondary devices like tablets and iPods, the demand for functional apps is only going to get larger.
