Five Reasons Why You Need To Be At Apps World



1. There are 5.9 billion mobile subscribers (which is about 87% of the world’s population) and over 300,000 apps have been developed in the last three years – the audience is raring to go and there are still plenty of apps waiting to be developed.

2. According to mobiThinking there have so far been 10.9 billion application downloads. Localytics found that one in four apps are never used again once downloaded, so how can you make sure your app isn’t one of them?

3. Application-to-person (A2P) messaging is predicted to take over person-to-person messaging by 2016 according to Juniper research, an industry that will be worth more than £44bn. Will this be the answer to lost SMS revenues?

4. 71% of smartphone users that see ads on TV, in magazines or online do a mobile search. One is seven searches is now mobile – how is your mobile strategy going to make sure your customers find you and not your competitors?

5. IDC reported in February that 1,546 million handsets were sold in 2011 which was 11.1% up on 2010. Find out how manufacturers are making sure that number grows again in 2012.

The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.
