Cellphones have become one of the most useful inventions known to mankind. They allow us to contact our friends across the globe instantly, check our email, take photos, share memories, and of course, also navigate busy streets using GPS signaling. If you live in the modern world, you need a cellphone. It’s a survival tool unlike any other.
We all love GPS, Siri, and all the other goodies that come with owning a standard smartphone. As great as all of these perks are, they’re really only the tip of the iceberg. The real power comes from the app marketplaces, and the many different app developers who have found new ways to add convenience to everyday life.
Day after day, there are new apps that make life easier (and better) than ever before. The way we’re interacting with tech, therefore, is starting to change into something nobody would have seen coming in the past. Here are some of the most impressive ways that apps have changed the world we’re living in today…
Once known as the world’s largest online bookstore, Amazon has now evolved into something far greater. It’s become one of the world’s largest content hubs as well as the biggest business in the history of mankind. People are now using Amazon Prime accounts to stream new shows, get lightning-fast delivery of goods to their door, and even set up grocery delivery services.
The Amazon app, as well as the accompanying Kindle gear, have become huge game-changers in the world of commerce. People are even going so far as to cut cable out of their budget in favor of Prime. Amazon has basically defined our era as one where everything should be on-demand. Other apps are beginning to follow suit…
Remember when you’d actually have to call your favorite restaurant, ask if they deliver, and pay them in cash? It was a hassle, no? Part of the new “on-demand” culture can be seen with the way we’re now ordering everything. It’s no longer enough to have mail-ordered shoes, clothes, and makeup. We even want to get restaurant food right at our doors.
It’s a symptom of an even bigger trend. People really love getting everything on demand these days…
Most people dread going to the doctor and abhor having to shell out hundreds of dollars for a single visit. That may soon be a thing of the past, thanks to telemedicine apps like Lemonaid Health.
Lemonaid Health is a telemedicine app that allows you to talk to qualified doctors about common medical issues like UTIs, acne, birth control, and even erectile dysfunction—all without having to leave your home. All you need to do is connect to the doctor, tell them your symptoms, and the doctor will write a prescription that you can pick up at your local pharmacy.
This cuts down expenses for all individuals involved, and also cuts down on the headache of dealing with a doctor’s office visit.
Living Sage Plastic Surgery Network
If you think that ordering birth control via apps is already pretty insane, wait until you hear about the newest advances in telemedicine geared towards cosmetic surgery. Living Sage Plastic Surgery Network, one of the top apps for plastic surgery-related content, has also become world famous for allowing people to connect with plastic surgeons for initial consultations.
By becoming a fusion between a content hub and telemedicine hub, Living Sage has managed to make a service that seemed impossible to create as an on-demand commodity more convenient than ever. Surprisingly, people have been taking to Living Sage like ducks to water.
Clients who have used it claim that they feel better than ever about going under the knife. The platform has become so successful, even major names like New York City’s Dr. Philip Miller and New Jersey’s Gordon Kaplan have jumped on the boat.
A Whole New World?
It’s clear that TV alone is not enough to reach customers. Today’s customer loves having everything on-demand. If you’re not taking part in this trend, your business is losing out.
