No matter what industry you look at, mobile applications are becoming an increasingly popular solution for many problems businesses face. They are also being used to help ease processes which previously were time-consuming and complicated. Not only do mobile applications help with the smooth-running of many businesses these days, but they also provide a great user experience for clients and help connect businesses to the public in a way which previously could not be achieved! This a great way to build a brand name and the proof is in the pudding – the majority of the outstanding brands in each industry have at least one app to support their brand!

Here we will explore how mobile applications have benefited the construction industry in particular. By taking a look at some of the big players out there in the construction industry, we will look at how apps have helped them in their success!

 

Mitie

The company Mitie, who provide a range of specialist services, have invested in creating the app CRiTEN for their employees. This app helps the employees view their shifts and log their time at work. The app makes the booking on and off changes a simple procedure for the employees.

 

On this app, employees can also report any problems they notice, which massively facilitates this process. Without having an easy platform to perform such tasks, employees would have to report problems either via telephone, email or involving paperwork, however, by allowing an app to do this, employee time is freed up, which no doubt increases productivity for the company too!

 

ISG

To give users a glamorous and modern image of the company, ISG has developed an app (Explore ISG) which allows you to take a walking tour around projects they are currently working on. This app demonstrates their professional ability to potential clients, bringing in more business for them, and it is also a great way to keep existing clients updated on the progress of their projects.

 

Kier Group

Kier has many apps, ranging from an info pack about the company to a directory allowing people to connect with the company. ‘Kier MIRP’ which provides instant information to incident reporting within the company is another one of their apps which helps inter-company communication to flow with ease! Every process made more accessible by using an app means that employees have more time to be productive in their work.

 

Morgan Sindall Group

To help them effectively manage the company’s resources located at or en route to the property of clients, Morgan Sindall created an app which allows them to do just that! This app means that all resources are easily traced, logged and recorded, and consequentially, losses or mistakes are a lot less likely compared to using a paper-based system to keep track of this. This is an app which would be handled internally amongst employees.

 

Amey plc

The Amey App allows explicitly the Amey engineering team to log in, select their site location and log their survey reports. This allows easy access to reports should they need to be checked, and makes the process a lot easier for the engineering team to complete.

This kind of app could potentially be used for any team which would benefit from it.

 

Costain Ltd

On the Google Play Store, Costain describes their app as a ‘solution for commissioning and various business functions across sectors’. Apps can be used for pretty much any use your business can find, as Costain demonstrates here! The app also allows users to operate offline in zones with no connectivity, meaning that employees can still be productive with this app, even when they cannot connect.

 

Laing O’Rourke

Laing O’Rourke boasts a wide array of apps. One of them is an interactive app which allows people to be involved in the process of construction and express their views on it. Another allows the public to keep up to date with project information, which is a great way to boost your public image as a company. This is also great for getting your brand out there on the market.

They also have an app especially for staff to keep up to date with company information and news, and this app provides a directory of global Laing offices. This app allows the company to connect with and contact their employees on a large scale with the very minimal effort needed! It also means that employees can access information even when they are out of the office!

 

Carillion Plc

Carillion allows drivers to record their hours and vehicle pre-use check, all done through their apps. This is used instead of the existing paper-based process which is much more time-consuming! By submitting all of the information to an app, the data is easily stored and accessed, meaning this information is easy to find again if needs are, rather than rooting around through drawers for old paperwork!

Other uses Carillion have found in apps are giving employees a platform on which they can speak out about unsafe acts and conditions and one which records time their staff spend doing volunteering activities. Carillion demonstrate that the possibilities are endless!

 

Balfour Beatty Group

Balfour has apps which allow them to gather data by recording assets and locations. Having an app which records places can be beneficial when working in the construction trade, as this helps to log the site location of the user quickly. Balfour Beatty also boasts a VR app for added user experience and professionalism. This is a great way to show off what your company is capable of to potential clients!

 

So there you have it – some of the biggest players out there in the construction industry, and how they use apps in their businesses! These apps are can either be used internally to help ease processes at work and for logging data, or they can be used externally to promote the company and the support communications with clients and with the public. Whatever industry you work in, apps can be handy for helping your business progress to the next level!

Don’t know whether to build an app or a website? Since apps took off around ten years ago, the app market has swollen and there is now an app for everything imaginable! Before this, we used websites for a lot of what we now use apps for. However, apps haven’t totally replaced websites, as they both have their good points and their bad points.

To begin with, let’s clarify the difference between the two. Although both can be accessed via a mobile device, a website is accessed over the Internet and rendered in a browser. Apps are downloaded onto your mobile device, and each app normally serves one particular purpose/company etc., whereas using a browser gives the user access to any website and does not only have one specific use and function. Responsive websites are also becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to adjust to different screen sizes and layouts.

 

Here we will cover the main pros and cons for both mobile applications and websites to help you decide what you need!

The Pros of Apps

 

  • Apps are a great platform for games, especially interactive ones. Games are easy to personalise in a mobile application, and people can easily keep track of their game history and stats this way.

 

  • Lack of internet connection – many apps do not require an internet connection for usage, which means that even when there is no connection, users are able to continue using the app. This differs from websites, where users must be connected to the Internet at all times for the website to run.

 

  • A native app can interface with the device’s features and hardware, such as the camera, GPS location, and so on. Apps add personalisation for the user and create convenient ways for users to achieve their goals. For example with online banking, users previously had to open a web browser, go to the website of their bank, enter all their details and then they could proceed to their internet banking. Now, with the invention of mobile banking apps and a progression in technology, users can simply press on an app, have their fingerprint read and bam! You’re in.

 

  • Mobile applications are good for recording and storing data. Many businesses need to keep track of or store their data, and apps hold this information easily, making it ideal.

 

  • Apps can send instant and automatic updates and notifications, for example, push notifications. This means that getting messages across to user is easy, keeping you much more connected with your customers.

 

  • According to Econsultancy, 85% of consumers prefer using mobile apps to websites due to ease, convenience, and better user experience being the main points. So if customer satisfaction plays an important part in your business, an app is naturally a good investment for your company. For example, Amazon has more mobile app revenue than web revenue, showing that regular Amazon shoppers prefer to use the Amazon app rather than have to go into a web browser to purchase items.

 

The Pros of Websites

 

  • Websites display a wider range of content because any website can be accessed from one browser. This means that a user doesn’t have to go to the effort of downloading an app to access your business/company, which is especially important if you get a lot of traffic by one-off users. When individuals make one-time purchases from shops, they are highly unlikely to download an app to do this.

 

  • Websites are easily accessible, which ties in with our previous point. Unlike apps, users do not have to download and install a website, which makes it much more accessible. Having a website also means that regardless of whether a user is using a mobile phone or a computer, they will be able to access your content.

 

  • Website content is much easier to update than app content, and once an update has been made to a website, this automatically shows for everyone using the website from then on forward. However, app updates involve users having to accept updates on their mobile devices, not to mention developers having to make any changes to their app stores. Also, websites don’t need as much maintenance as an app. Apps crash quite frequently, which can potentially discourage users from using an app again!

 

  • Websites are easy to find and can be viewed on multiple platforms. Some apps are also only native to iOS or Android, meaning they are not accessible to everybody with a smartphone, whereas websites are accessible to everyone!

 

  • According to business.com, people only use around 5 apps for 84% of the time they spend on their phones, and these apps are normally ones which they use frequently and are loyal to. So if yours is not the type of business which will generate this type of audience, a website could be more advantageous as it can be accessed quickly without the need to download it. For example, if a user repeatedly shops online with the same store, they are likely to download the app for that store as it will simplify a process which they regularly undertake. However another person may enjoy shopping all over the place, so this person would be more likely to use the web, as they can have multiple tabs up of a variety of shops, all at the same time. This means that the web has a broader audience reach.

 

Developing a website AND a mobile application can sometimes be an expensive investment, and if you are on a budget you may only be able to choose one. Sometimes, choosing can be completely dependent on your specific business needs, one person’s problem could well be another’s solution! While both platforms have their pros and cons, mobile applications are more convenient and offer a better user experience to your customers!

There are some apps out there which have really hit it off since apps became a thing a decade ago! Here we list some of the most popular apps worldwide and we take a look at what makes them so successful!

 

 

  1. WhatsApp

Founded by Jan Koum and Brian Acton in 2009, WhatsApp (as I’m sure you are aware) is a communication platform for phone calls, video calls, messaging, photo-sharing and so on. WhatsApp makes global communication simple and easy, which is no doubt a leading reason for its huge success. It is a cheap option for communicating across borders, as all you need is Wifi to send messages and make calls.

As of December 2017, WhatsApp announced more than 1.5 billion monthly active users!

 

  1. Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook is heard of pretty much all over the globe! With an average of 1.45 billion people logging into Facebook on a daily basis, it is no wonder this is arguably the most famous app in the entire world.

Facebook is the ultimate social networking app, linking people together from all around the world, it has truly changed the dynamics of, and accessibility to, communication in the 21st century.

Facebook messenger, part of the Facebook company, however now downloadable in a separate app, also has over a billion daily users.

 

  1. YouTube

According to merchdope, there are 1.3 billion active YouTube users worldwide! As a video-sharing platform, you can watch pretty much anything on YouTube, ranging from music videos to make-up tutorials to funny dog videos – there is a video on every topic imaginable! Owned by Google since 2006, almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every day, and 300 hours of video are uploaded by users every minute!

 

  1. Instagram

Ok, we are starting to see a trend here now aren’t we? Pretty much all of the most popular apps are to do with communication and social interaction, which is why Instagram is also on this list. Instagram, a photo/video sharing social networking platform, is the perfect way to keep people updated on our lives through photos and videos. Many people also use Instagram as a means of promoting their businesses and so on.

According to Instagram, over 50 million people use their app on a daily basis!

 

  1. Snapchat

Snapchat is a multimedia messaging app, where one can either send instant pictures, videos or messages to other users. These photos do not permanently stay on a users Snapchat (unless the user saves the image), therefore making it the ideal app for sending little snippets of our daily lives to our friends!

It is such a successful app that Facebook tried to nab it for themselves in 2013, however, Snapchat declined their offer.

Sometimes, it can just feel impossible to get a decent nights sleep! No matter how hard we try, we end up tossing and turning all through the night and end up waking up the next day feeling groggy and tired. If you are struggling to catch a decent amount of Z’s, why not try out some sleep-aid apps – many people swear by them! Here, we’ve listed our favourite sleep apps for you to try out so that you can get that great nights sleep you’ve been waiting for!

 

Sleep Cycle

This app is an alarm clock which cleverly tracks your sleeping patterns and accordingly wakes you up whilst you’re in light sleep. This way, you wake up feeling refreshed and well-rested, rather than grumpy and exhausted, which is what can often happen when our alarms wake us up in our deep sleep. The sleep phase we wake up in is extremely important with regards to how rested we feel when waking up, and this app helps wake you up at the right time to optimise your energy!

 

Sleep Sounds

Sleep Sounds is a soothing app which helps anyone who has trouble falling asleep. By playing soothing sounds whilst you sleep, such as rain sounds, beach sounds, and so on, this app helps you sleep like a baby! So if you are craving that night of uninterrupted and peaceful sleep, why not give Sleep Sounds a go!

Sleep Well Hypnosis

For those of us who really suffer from insomnia, sometimes sleep sounds or white noise still don’t manage to get us to sleep. Rather than getting frustrated by those restless nights, why not give sleep hypnosis a go? The Sleep Well Hypnosis app boasts audio sessions from a certified hypnotherapist, which are designed to help your mind and body relax.

Calm – Meditate, Sleep, Relax

If you think there are underlying issues which are making it difficult to fall asleep, Calm could be the app for you. This app helps to tackle anxiety and stress, which can both make it very difficult to switch off and fall asleep. By teaching you the basics of meditation, as well as featuring adult bedtime stories for relaxation, breathing exercises and soothing sounds, this app is sure to help you drift off into a peaceful slumber. With almost 100, 000 downloads on Google Play, we can see just how popular this sleeping aid has become!

 

Rain Sounds – Sleep and Relax

There is something about the sound of rain which can really relax the mind and make it so much easier to fall asleep after a long day! That’s why ‘Rain Sounds – Sleep and Relax’ solely focuses on rain sounds to help you sleep. This app provides you with a range of rain sounds which you can choose from – perhaps you enjoy the peaceful pitter patter of raindrops against your window? Or maybe you find heavy, stormy rain more soothing? Well, whichever you prefer, this app has it! You can also choose to customise the sounds and add piano tracks in the background for optimum relaxation.

Sleep Time

Similar to Sleep cycle, this app detects your movements during the night and from this, determines the best time to wake you up so that you wake up feeling refreshed, rather than groggy. With a wide array of alarms to choose from, your morning will become so much easier and much more pleasant with this app. It also provides you with graphs on your sleeping patterns, you know, just for fun!

Over the years, Facebook has become a multi-billion dollar social media company since it was founded on February 4th, 2004. Since then, Facebook has grown to be arguably one of the most well-known companies worldwide. Along with its success, Facebook has merged with and acquired other companies in its lifetime, in fact too many to list here! So for today, we will focus on the most prominent and most well-known apps which Facebook has managed to get its hands on!

 

Messenger

First of all, a slightly obvious one – Facebook Messenger. It was created by Facebook so it should come as no shock that Facebook owns it. It has replaced what used to be Facebook Chat and has been improved for better and smoother user experience.

According to statistics, Messenger has an average recording of 1.3 billion active users! Not bad!

 

Whatsapp

Whatsapp, the social messaging, photo, and video-sharing platform were founded in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, both former employees of Yahoo!

In February 2014, Facebook announced that it would be buying the company WhatsApp for US$19 billion. Whatsapp have now recorded around 55 billion messages sent per day between users!

 

Instagram

Instagram, the photo, and the video-sharing social network is now also owned by Facebook! Created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, it was launched in October 2010 on iOS, and on Android in April 2012. One could also view Instagram pages on a web interface as of November 2012.

In March 2012, Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion, with plans to keep Instagram independently managed. This deal was officially closed between Facebook and Instagram on September 6, 2012.

 

Masquerade (MSQRD)

Masquerade is a face tracking and 3D face placement app. Face-changing apps became popular when Snapchat added face-changing features to their app in 2015, and it could be assumed that Facebook bought MSQRD in attempt to compete against Snapchat. Indeed, Facebook had already attempted to buy Snapchat for $3 billion back in 2013, however, Snapchat refused this offer.

 

Moves App

Facebook acquired Moves App back in 2014 and the company which owned it, ProtoGeo Oy.  ‘Moves’ is a motion-tracking app which automatically records any walking, cycling, or running you do. On top of this, it can tell you the distance you’ve walked, how many steps you’ve taken and how many calories you’ve burnt.

 

Moves use sensor and location information to not only track your body movements but also to track where you are. It means that users can look back at their day and see exactly how much exercise they took at different parts of the day, and where on the map this occurred.

How Apps Can Make Money Without Ads https://www.overpass.co.uk/how-apps-can-make-money-without-ads/ https://www.overpass.co.uk/how-apps-can-make-money-without-ads/#respond Fri, 04 May 2018 08:28:52 +0000 https://www.overpass.co.uk/?p=49742   Nobody can deny the fact that in-app ads are quite annoying for the user – it is always a pleasant relief when we download an add-free app!

Nobody can deny the fact that in-app ads are quite annoying for the user – it is always a pleasant relief when we download an add-free app! No interruptions during games, no aesthetically-displeasing banners plastered over your phone screen – it makes the app experience much more enjoyable!

 

But without ads, how are these free apps making any money?!

 

Here, we list the many ways which ad-free apps still manage to earn themselves plenty of revenue – they just annoy people less in the process! Win win for everyone!

 

In-app Purchases

Many apps charge for in-app purchases, which can often be in the form of upgrades or points. For example, game apps will often have items you can purchase to make the game easier for you, or to help you progress through levels quicker. As levels start to get trickier, users can easily become impatient and choose to pay for an item in the game which helps with game progression. This means no ads for the user, and a genius way to create some revenue with your app!

 

Monthly Subscription Fees

For example, one of the most successful apps out there today – Tinder! Tinder is a free app, anyone can use it. But to get the most out of the app and experience perks within the app, you can upgrade to Tinder Plus! This still allows users to participate without making any payments, however by limiting what people can do without a subscription and offering to provide a better experience by subscribing, with monthly fees in the range of $2.99 to $34.99, many people are enticed into paying a few dollars a month.

 

Again, no ads necessary! There will always be people out there willing to pay that little bit extra for a premium experience!

 

Use Native Ads

This is not ad-free so to speak – but it sure does makes the ads less annoying!

The definition of a native ad is “a type of advertising, mostly online, that matches the form and function of the platform upon which it appears”.

A couple of great examples of apps which use native ads are Instagram and Facebook.

They use native ads which fit into the style of the app, so you barely notice that you are even looking at ads. Rather than having pop-ups unwelcomingly show up all over the place, or banners plastered across half your phone screen, all which interrupt your usage of the app, native ads blend in with the nature of the app and therefore they are generally less irritable for the user.

This is a very smart way of advertising, as it also offers direct access to the advertisers Instagram or Facebook page, bringing that business/company more traffic and interest from the public.

 

One time purchase of the app

Of course there is also the option of having a non-free app, but ad free. However people are often hesitant to spend money on something they do not yet trust, and therefore this can deter people from trying your app to begin with. By forcing someone to pay for your app in order for them to even try it, it can put people off completely! With 94% of apps free on Google Play, and 88% of apps free on the Apple App Store, people have so many options to choose from that it is unlikely they will pay for an app straight off the bat without trying it first!  

 

Having a free app with in-app purchases or monthly subscriptions gives the user time to trust your app, and then they will feel much more comfortable parting with their money for it!

 

So there you have it! A couple of different ways of creating revenue with your app without the need for pop-up ads all over the place. Which ones do you consider the most effective?!
