There has been a steady decline in mobile web over last few years and apps are now ruling the mobile space. Stats from Flurry suggest that in 2014, mobile users spent 86% of their mobile using time on apps, up from 80% in 2013. Publishers also value app users more than web users, and ‘Download App’ ads are plentiful on mobile sites. Mobile users find it more convenient to use apps than mobile web and the traffic to the WAP sites has been reducing.
Recent trends show popularity of apps among mobile users, and hence it is logical for WAP site owners to ride the prevailing trends. Leading publishers across industries have developed their apps. It’s time you also have an app for your mobile web contents.
Building your own app for mobile web content is often not feasible because of technical resource constraints. Publishers, especially small and medium sized, find it difficult to switch to app from mobile web. Adiquity has the perfect solution for this – convert your mobile site to an app directly, using AppNow.
