Nearly half a billion smartphones were sold worldwide in 2011 alone. 67 million iPads were purchased in its first two years in the market; that’s the largest product launch in history. A platform shift took place in 2011—for the first time, sales of smartphones and tablets eclipsed desktop and notebook sales. For the first time since the launch of cell phones, people are spending more time on mobile devices—and using mobile apps—than the desktop platform browsers. People are on the go, and they need technology that keeps up with them.
I decided to write this book because I have encountered many businesspeople who lack the knowledge and confidence to join the mobile app revolution. In these pages, you’ll find a wealth of information and step-by-step guidance to move you toward the essential launch of your business’s mobile app. I’ve also extended the value you will receive here by providing four additional bonuses on my website, www.thebookonmobileapps.com.
