“Connecting people.” If you’re a millennial, then I’m like 99% sure, you know what I’m referring to. If you don’t know, then you’re a Gen Zer! Of course, I am talking about Nokia’s (RIP) tagline that until now you cannot read it without hearing the “da-da-dun-dun-dun!” We’ve come a long way since then and the evolution of mobile phones is going strong!
A mobile phone is no longer just a phone, it’s a wallet, a camera, a business, a music player, and so much more. Holding a mobile phone is like having the whole world in the palm of your hand, let’s see how!
1. Entrepreneur’s billboard
Got a phone?! Say hello to your new business. Phones have made it easier to start a business – even if you have no idea how to run a business. You can do it for free, so even if you fail, then at least you’ve tried. So many brands have started with just a Facebook or an Instagram post! It makes it easier to find and build an audience.
You may not have a menu in your hand right now, but you do have one on your phone! Until this day, I still remember the joy I had when they released the first online delivery app; Otlob (RIP). It certainly has solved 90% of my problems with my sisters! I mean, ordering food is a pleasure, but ordering food is a pain! No more fighting about who’s gonna call the restaurant and no more writing down a script before calling. It’s just click, click, click, and no communication!
3. Unyielding growth
It’s a new year, but even if no one wished you a happy new year or you feel like no one cares about you; I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong. App developers deeply care about you! They’re the superheroes behind every mobile convenience in your life. Delivery apps, riding apps, pet apps, social apps, streaming apps, business apps (unfortunately), and even dating apps, whatever you need, app developers are here for you! In a way, they have become therapists for our mundane problems. And each day, a new problem arises! The best part is that all you gotta do is to complain and app developers will hear your cry for help!
4. Stacks on stacks on stacks
And with the rise of technology, our angels (app developers) have made it possible to earn and save money all at the same time. With E-wallets, it’s become easier to pay for things which means no one should be using the “I forgot my wallet at home” excuse anymore! It’s also easier to receive money, I mean a lot of us got disappointed by the banks’ money transfer function at least once! As for making money, investing apps have become extremely popular and are definitely “our drink of choice.”
