Reasons Why Mobile App Matters
This is a true story. While I was taking a vacation on a beautiful island, indulging in its amazing view and clean air, my phone rang. My company needed to submit a very important application that only I could write about, and the application had to be submitted before the end of the day. I didn’t bring my lappy (like how the hipsters called it nowadays), so what was I to do? I could write on a few sheets of high-quality grainy Resort papers laying around in my room, snap a photo and send it over, but could they understand my near-doctor handwriting that even I had the problem reading? After a few moments of panicking, the genius in me kicked in and made me installed Google doc App on my mobile that made it possible for me to carry out my important task on a tiny little screen until the sun went down. Okay, forgive me for the incident's over-dramatization. I could simply go to the Resort’s business Center to finish my job but the fact remains that people do stuff on their mobile nowadays; it’s hard to even talk to these people and look them in the eyes, literally.
