How Mobile Applications Have Eased Modern Lifestyle
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” – Arthur C. Clarke. Isn’t it true? The technology we have today, is nothing short of bewitchment. As recent as two decades ago, people would have laughed at the mention of a tool that would allow them to track movement, or get groceries delivered to their doorstep, or even get accurate directions to any place across the globe at the click of a button. Luckily, some nonconformists were crazy enough to not only think, but also bring their ideas to fruition. Remember the spaceship ‘Axiom’ with all its futuristic bells and whistles, from the movie “Wall-E”? Who knows, someday it might actually take on character!
Today, whenever anyone talks about a new business or performing a certain task, our first question is, “Is there an app for it?”. Be it an app for streaming videos, fitness, or social networking, mobile apps are far from coming to a grinding halt. Let’s take a deeper look into how they’ve eased our lives:
4 Ways How Mobile Applications Are Serving Us
Here’s a fun fact: users spend 90% of their time browsing through apps in comparison to websites. It’s no wonder that approximately 300 apps are published everyday across iOS and Android platforms.
Anyone born before the noughties will remember the days when Walkman was THE gadget. Nowadays you can instantly listen to your favourite tunes by using music streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. Some of these apps even let you download the song and listen to it in offline mode. What about videos you ask? Well, don’t worry! That hasn’t been left behind either.
Gone are the days when we would fight over a TV remote with our siblings to watch our favourite movie or TV show. Cable TV has ruled the television roost since eons but with the advancement of new technology, more and more people are turning to online video streaming. “Cable TV Cord-cutting” is a real thing; it refers to cancelling pay TV subscription in the interest of web-based streaming services.
You can choose from a wide range of apps like Netflix, Hulu, Hotstar, Amazon Prime, etc. Depending upon your preferences and willingness to spend. These apps enable you to watch on the move at your convenience, without missing out on the latest episode or a new movie. You can even catch up on a live game from the comfort of your bed.
2) Social Networks
Social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have changed the landscape of global confabulation. As Mark Zuckerberg rightly said, “By giving people the power to share, we’re making the world more transparent.” There’s probably a social media button somewhere on this page as well! That’s how much we’re influenced by social media.
The spectrum of application of these platforms is boundless. From being up-to-date about the current affairs to promoting a business to staying in touch with friend, both old and new, with social media platforms, anything is possible.
Facebook is perhaps the most widely used social networking app amongst all others. Currently, it boasts of 1.86 billion users and this number keeps increasing year on year. Other popular apps are Snapchat, WhatsApp, and Instagram, each of them with their own USPs.
Every one of us desires to have a great body. Unfortunately, many of us are saddled with stressful work routines that leave us with little time to focus on being fit. Furthermore, hiring a personal trainer can burn a huge hole in the pocket. Fitness mobile apps like MyFitnessPal, Lose It, Diet Bet, and Pocket Yoga, make it painless to stick to fitness goals by enabling users to log diets, monitor calories, and track progress.
Studies have shown that people who use fitness apps regularly, remained more active compared to those who didn’t. Additionally, there are also apps that give you access to healthy recipes, help you to practice meditation, and aid in getting better sleep.
I can’t even imagine going back to those days when getting a ticket to a highly anticipated movie wasn’t guaranteed. Today, you can book movie tickets, stand-up comedy shows, and music concert tickets within seconds. Furthermore, booking an air ticket, hotel, or even an experience such as spa, has never been so easy. It eliminates the need of an agent, while reducing the costs significantly. What’s more? You receive a confirmation almost instantly.
These days, you don’t even require a physical copy of your tickets to enter a movie theatre or board an aircraft. This means, no more standing in long, serpentine queues! All you have to do is flash your e-ticket at the counter and you are in. Last minute bookings aren’t an issue either. As long as you’ve installed the app on your phone, you can book tickets anytime you wish.
Some of the best event booking apps include Eventbrite, Stubhub, and WillCall. These apps feature quick and easy payment options.
We won’t relinquish life without technology, but you can’t deny the fact that it’s a manna from heaven that has become a way of life for many. Mobile apps have taken over the present generation to the extent that we almost feel handicapped without our mobile. We have shared our views and would love to hear yours.
