There's an (Business) App for That

Blog Article  |  Posted by Melissa Burns  |  Nov 30, 2017



Do you remember Apple’s iPhone 3G commercial from 2009? In the video, a man scrolled through his iPhone, boasting of the different Apple applications for anything you could possibly think of. He showcased an app that tells you where you last parked your car, an app that gives you the current snow conditions on a mountain, and even an app that helps you track calories. (To view this iconic commercial, click here.)

While I’m not quite sure how I ended up on this old commercial on YouTube (and that’s not important), I am sure that there is something significant that should be taken from the clip. No, it’s not how far smartphones have come since this commercial first aired, although it is quite impressive to think about.

I am referring to the phrase “there’s an app for that.” This phrase, which was coined and trademarked by Apple, contains a more significant meaning in today’s digital world. There is quite literally an app for anything you can possibly think of, and this isn’t just in our personal lives. Our business lives have become so integrated and connected with our smart devices, that tech start-ups and colossal software companies around the world are creating an app for all our conferencing, collaborating, CRM, and document saving/sharing needs. These apps have quite literally transformed the way businesses conduct themselves, leading to greater innovation and higher efficiency.
