In 2017, forecasters predict that around 223 million people in the U.S. will be using a smartphone, which accounts for around 83.8 percent of all mobile users . Of these 223 million smartphone users, over 90 million will own an iPhone. If your business has an app your business is now open to millions not just locally around your physical locations. iOS app development is leading in app creation because mostly everyone has an iPhone. If you need to drive business up, gain more conversion, and overall gain a wider variety of consumers; an app is what you need.
The Second, is for ecommerce. No one shops anymore. At least not away from the comfort of their own home. One of the leading retailers is Amazon. Why? Because they make shopping a quick tap or click away, rather than an all day event. If your business wants more traffic an app could be your best option. Even in a competitive sense, your competition might not have an app and if they could buy a product or service from you from the comfort of their own home rather than physically going to your competitor’s store. The option is clear. E-commerce is a great option that will drive up sales and an app will do just that. Those millions of people could be shopping anywhere at anytime from your store!
