Discussion:
Now that the smartphone has become the norm in our society, the newest app’s are no longer a topic of discussion with your friends or co-workers. Why is this happening?

The average number of app’s on a persons phone in the U.S. is 32.8. The number of app’s being downloaded is declining; and most users do not use all of their app’s on a regular basis.

One of the reasons for this might be, that there are only so many functions that apps can perform and companies have figured out how to put all of those functions into a few apps.

Questions for discussion:

  • When is the last time you downloaded an app? Why did you download the app?
  • Have you ever paid for an app? Why or why not?
  • Does the app’s market of return still encourage professional and monetary investment? Why or why not?
