As smartphones reach near-ubiquity, business owners are realizing the value of a mobile app now is the time to build one. Currently, ninety percent of people in the world between 18 and 50 own a smartphone yet less than one-quarter of businesses have a mobile app.
Three years ago, a business might have seen 10 percent of its total web traffic coming from mobile but now it’s closer to 70 percent. Within the next couple of years, most businesses will consider building a mobile app. So aside from popular demand “why create an app”, to increase sales, being visible to customers at all times is the best way to boost sales.
