Smartphones…everybody’s got one these days, whether it’s iPhone or Android. Tablets are popular, too. What do people use them for? It’s all about the apps. Social media, games, useful tools, fun stuff.
You can get in on the action. Of course, you’re not going to be competing with the likes of Pandora and Pinterest. But you can come up with a niche idea that addresses a need that people have and create an app that meets that need. It could be a tip calculator, better photo storage, a list — with illustrations — of yoga poses, podcast downloader and organizer… the list goes on.
You don’t need to be a programmer. You’re the idea person, and you hire people to create it. With the availability of programmers available for very cheap rates that you can hire on sites like Upwork, it’s not a problem. Of course, the exact amount you’ll pay your developers depends on the complexity of the app.
One thing. You should create your app so that it works on both Android smartphones and Apple iPhones. That way you maximize your customer base.
