Gone are the days of researching school papers by sitting down with an enormous encyclopedia on your lap cutting off your circulation in your legs. Or going to the local library on the rainiest day possible to gather information on a variety of subjects. We are now living in a world where information flies from the cloud to your fingertips at speeds measured in milliseconds. The computer has changed countless aspects of our day to day lives…and now most of us walk around with a “computer” in our pocket.
Today, roughly 64% of adult Americans own a smartphone. This is up from 35% in 2011. Think about those numbers for a moment. There are twice as many of us walking around constantly connected to the world than there were only 4 short years ago. Coupled with the increased number of smartphones out there is an explosion of apps available. The clear top two places to get apps are Google Play and Apple’s App Store, with 1.6 million and 1.5 million available apps, respectively.
