There are plenty of mobile apps for business purposes and mobile applications that are geared towards pleasure. But while you are developing your company’s customized mobile app, you would be wise to consider the ways that commerce and casual usage can co-exist and establish a mobile app for business and pleasure.

Problem-Solving Apps 

The Google Translate app allows users to overcome the common problem of language barriers by letting them translate words and phrases to and from over 50 different languages. Frequent travelers can now know how to ask for directions immediately without lugging around a foreign language dictionary. Making a mobile app that can provide answers to issues that your users face will increase the likelihood of your application getting used on a regular basis.

Time-saving Apps 

Barcode Scanner is an awesome example of a time-saving app that lets users scan a product’s barcode with their mobile device, retrieve the price and even perform price comparisons on the product. Imagine the time saved when you no longer have to hunt down a salesperson for a price check or worry about whether or not you are getting the best deal. Make sure that your mobile app has a feature or two that can save its user some extra time in their busy day.

Convenience Apps 

An example of a business app that also falls into the pleasure category is Dropbox, the digital content storage app. Dropbox allows users to be able to store videos, graphics, pictures, text documents and a host of other digital files in privately customized folders that can be accessed remotely from the Dropbox cloud service. If your mobile app can make life easier for your employees and your customers than you will be definitely be on the right track towards success.
