Easy and convenient should be tagline for every service that is available in the market. Last decade professionals used to use laptops for working, sending emails, net banking and online shopping. P.C could not be carried everywhere hence laptops came into existence. Laptops are the in thing now because they could be taken everywhere and work would not be hampered.
After some years laptop bags were deemed bulky and hence troublesome to be carried everywhere. Laptops also had a tendency of showing ‘battery low’ signs which were irritating. New and improved laptops with higher battery backup versions were launched in the market.
Man is not satisfied & so a smaller version was invented and called tablets. Emergency work could be done on a tablet and it was lighter and easy to carry.
More research resulted in even smaller version being made. These are phones with a difference. These phones were intelligent and hence ‘smart phones’. These smart phones help a person to call, send messages, access emails, click photos, Google information, set alarms, reminders and many more features.
These smart phones were noticed by online shopping sites and because people had their phones with them all the time some feature to incorporate shopping was introduced and this feature was called ‘mobile applications’ or apps.
Every feature that was needed in a smart phone became an app. In the beginning all major phone manufacturers like Nokia ,Apple, created games. Then slowly due to demand by customers many other apps were created.
Then came online banking, which was an instant hit. This encouraged online shopping which was convenient, easy and shopping could be done any where anytime.Apps were developed by all major shopping sites like flipkart, amazon, snapdeal.
The method of using is also described in easy language and many have started pursuing hobbies. Online shopping was promoted as shopping in the comfort of your home, but apps have taken it further, shop from anywhere at any time . In the busy world that we live this is a luxury. Apps are the new tool that has revolutionized online shopping in today’s world.
