Sharing economy apps

For all that is said about how computers, the Internet and the digitization of interactions are alienating from their fellow man, there have been developments that have purposely brought people closer. Social media is undoubtedly one of these developments, so has messaging mobile apps, but so too has a host of mobile apps that are bringing users together through basic commerce. Users buy, sell, rent and trade with each other, offering spare rooms, entire houses, their cars and even parking spots for their cars. These mobile apps have digitized the bartering system of old, made it as fool proof as possible and has made it ridiculously simple to use.

Sharing economy apps

The academic term for this is collaborative consumption and it refers to how an individual can use various digital platforms to bring to the marketplace a previously untapped reserve of assets, whether that be physical goods, skills or services. The apps that have been created upon which users can participate in this collaborative consumption are colloquially known as sharing economy apps.

Messaging apps are king

When text and SMS messaging first came out it was outright mocked by some people. Why would I send someone a message when I can just call them? Fast forward to today and it seems like the exact opposite is true. Nowadays people are more reluctant to engage in an actual real live conversation, rather using typed words and chat style conversations is the preferred method of conversation. Unlike vocal conversations, digital conversations can be delayed at will. Entire dialogues can be put on pause and resumed at a later time. The conversation can be traced word for word and everything is recorded on the chats history. Nothing is rushed, everything is remembered.

Text messaging used to only allow a single device to communicate with one other device at a time. This rang true for SMS services and the first wave of messaging apps. However, that quickly changed as adoption rates increased. Mobile app developers soon saw the potential and opened conversations up to groups of users. What started to develop was not only a discussion between two people but a conversation within a community. This notion grew rapidly and now people from different parts of the world can take part within the same discussion. Businesses studied this idea and were soon testing it as an alternative method of communication within their organizations.

App stores restrictions and filters

We are all familiar with the idea of seasonal cleaning. Taking a day or a whole weekend to finally do away with all the clutter and junk that has built up over the course of months of neglect. The work is often tedious. Methodically sorting out and eliminating things that only serve to weigh everything down or get in the way, takes time and resources. However, the payoff is definitely worth it.

app store restrictions

Mobile OS companies, Apple and Google, have definitely caught onto this idea and ran with it. The two tech giants have definitively cornered the market when it comes to the distribution of mobile apps. No other company out there has more apps in their stores nor has the downloads that these companies boast. Mobile app developers know this as well and they have flocked to these platforms to hawk their apps to Apple and Google customers.

Mobile apps crash reporting tools

If there is one thing mobile app users hate, truly hate, it is the moment when the app that they enjoying or depending on, suddenly and mysteriously dies on them. Receiving a message stating “Unfortunately this app has stopped working” is one of the most infuriating messages a mobile app user can receive. There are several dozen reasons why an app would crash but for the user none of them are relevant, all that is going through their minds is that the app or the phone, or both have let them down when they needed it the most. Sadness, annoyance, anger and betrayal are common emotions that rise within a user when they experience such a crash.

While the user is forced to wait for a system or a mobile app restart everyone else is playing the blame game. Mobile app development companies point the finger at the OS and device manufacturers, and vice versa. Fans of Apple are quick to point out that the Android OS suffers a lot of crashes even though a recent study showed that 62% of iPhones and iPads have been experiencing failures worldwide. For contrast, only 47% of Android devices suffer a similar fate. Fans of Android will try to retaliate and point the finger at iOS, but the truth of the matter is that Google’s own app distribution center, Google Play Services, crashes 10% of the time.

Mobile apps ready for Christmas, careful of fakes!

It is the season for snow (somewhere), Santa (if you believe in him) and presents (if you’ve been good). It is usually a time spent with family, friends and in malls searching for the perfect gift. As the holiday season gets more and more commercialized and shopping centers everywhere are heaving with bodies, people have begun to utilize the technological devices in the palm of their hands. Staying at home and making their purchases through their mobile devices and laptops via mobile apps, consumers these days no longer need to enter the warzone that is the mall parking lot. Now, they can do all their shopping and purchases right from the comfort of their own homes.

This comfort is a bit of a double-edged sword. Technological advancements have made it possible for people to actually enjoy the Christmas season without having to engage in a battle for a Tickle Me Elmo. However, the widespread use of such technology makes them a target for cybercriminals waiting to exploit their online vulnerabilities. Consumers need to be vigilant to decrease the risk that they are exposed to when it comes to app use.
