    Back in the 1990s, people wondered why they needed a website. Few people wonder about that now. The same thing is starting to happen with mobile apps and websites optimized for mobile phones.

    Here are some basic benefits to having an app:

    (a) Market yourself – almost everyone has a phone in their pocket and smartphones are the future. Never before was it possible to be so close to your users 100% of the time;

    (b) Provide your customers and fans with enhanced knowledge about you and your product;

    (c) Let your brand become a useful tool and/or an entertainment device that people can keep going back to;

    (d) Generate revenue. Earn money from ads, or sell your products or services;

    (e) Having an app of your own means you will be ahead of your competitors and it is something you can keep promoting for years to come;

    (f) Apps are great advertisements. Consider how much it costs to buy a half page ad in a newspaper. Chances are a MakeMyAppNOW app costs less, plus it doesn’t disappear forever once someone turns the page. Having an app means that every time someone scrolls through their phone they will see your brand, even if they don’t open up the app.

    In the current scenario,people are more mobile friendly and they use all the services on mobile because mobily is handy as well as comfortable as per the use by the people.So I think mobile apps must be more promoted for advertising purposes as well as for sale purposes.

    I agree with you. Mobile apps are quite useful for supporting your several business activities regarding getting your emails, surfing business, storing videos and sharing information.

    The best thing about the mobile channel is that it gives companies the potential to engage with their customers in real-time, by location and complete with profile information.

    I think it's great to have a mobile app but only if it works. If you try to get to a website on a phone and the quality of it on mobile is poor, you won't visit the site as often. I know this because if a website has a poor mobile site I will just leave and may not return to the site even on a computer.

    Developing a mobile app for your business helps you reach many more customers, than with a traditional Website. Mobile search has become very popular today, especially with the younger audience. While your current customers could spread the word by talking about you to their friends, new users could find you via a generic search.

    Nowadays, mobile search has become more popular. Mobile app helps you reach more clients/ customers than with traditional websites. If you integrate major social networks with your app, it will help to increase the scope and reach of your business. If companies are not interested in developing mobile apps, another option is a creating mobile friendly website. It will work out well in their budget.

    In this kind of marketing times, yes, it is indeed great to have a mobile app for business, BUT, you must also consider that it must be attractive and helpful enough for the users to engage with it.

    Yes, mobile apps are important but not for every business, you need to see your requirement and type of website and what people are doing on your website, if it is a simple website, then it does not need to have a mobile app for your website, even your customers does not need to come back to you everytime, then also you do not need to have an app as a responsive website is enough for the same. If your customers has to come back to you everytime, then app is needed for their comfort.

    Now a days you will rarely find a person in front of a computer majority of the time most of the people are using their smartphones to check up on products and stuff since they are always on the go and it makes it easier for them to just up and browse whatever they are looking for on a small device rather than the hassle of pulling out your laptop waiting for it to turn on and then going through all of the other things in it.
