Let’s be honest, it’s what you’re actually utilizing when you turn your pocket size computer on anyway right!
Who wants to sit around and wait for anything anymore? Flip through pages for a contact or any action that requires more than “googling it.” Mobile technology affords users the luxury of instantiations information at their fingertips. Literally, anything, anywhere at any time no matter how important or pointless it may be. So, if the information is not readily available one will become understandably frustrated.
That is a term easily found at the end of almost everyone’s “contact me” page. Instant messengers, video chats, social media pages the opportunity to connect or reconnect are endless. It easier now more than ever to connect with family, friends, co-workers, etc. across the globe or in most households across the room. As glamorous as it sounds there are some drawbacks. Like that pesky “read message” at the end of an iMessage with no reply…ouch. This can easily cause someone to become annoyed. Before it wasn’t uncommon for someone to take more than 30 seconds to reply. Now it’s more like a nuisance.
Proactive at work
What is a business without productivity, a hobby? Mobile apps have revolutionized the way businesses prioritize, organize, produce and generate cash flow. Apps like Evernote help businesses and persons do just that, take notes, organize and archive. Or how about answering work emails outside of the office, video chatting with a potential client, watch the fluctuation of the stock market, etc. Mobile applications help businesses get ahead. By making it possible to stay plugged in at all times. Just remember to make time for social activities outside of work.
When was the last time that you waited in line to purchase a movie ticket or order a pizza for that matter? In fact, you can order coffee and groceries through mobile technology. How is that for black Friday/ Holiday shopping. Wait at the teller to deposit checks, that is a thing of the past. The point is, mobile applications eliminates the need to have to physically do almost all of the dreaded everyday activities that we are used to doing. Now we have a personal assistant running errands at our fingertips. In turn, freeing up time and patience to complete other activities.
