As we,, released our own mobile app, we couldn’t help but wonder about the origin of apps.  First, what is a mobile app?  It is defined as “a computer program designed to run on computers, tablets, smart phones and other mobile devices.”  All you need to download an app is a smart phone or other mobile device with internet access. Apps began appearing in 2008 and are normally operated by the owner of the operating system. EX: Apple, Google Play, Etc., The idea behind the apps was to make information more readily available for the traveling business world so they had the ability to keep up with their email, stocks, weather, etc. As the popularity of apps increased so did the app formats and capabilities. There are over one million apps available to download to your smartphone and the field keeps growing.
