The numbers speak for themselves: the world is mobile and as of today, there are around 2 billion smartphone users and soon to become 3, 4, 6 billions in the next few years. We spend more time on our mobile devices than on any other technology and we mainly look for apps because we want to be entertained or because we need them in a particular moment for a specific purpose.
