Mobile Apps Soaring

Spending on mobile apps continue to soar.  As Kiplinger reports, mobile apps will be nearing $160 Billion globally by 2022, up from about $82 Billion in 2017.  This is purported proof that apps still have legs.  China is the leading market by far, followed by the Us, Japan and South Korea. Popular categories include social media, texting, games, music and video.  And, a slew of others are poised for explosive growth.  Apps for health care, education, productivity and smart homes will give coders new markets to chase.  Of course, Apple and Alphabet will rake in profits, since their app stores are the dominant places to retrieve apps.

Europe has a considerable digital bank market.  Now, according to the Kiplinger Letter, these digital banks are coming to the US.  Monzo, N26 and Revolut plan to launch soon despite difficulties faced by American counterparts.  The Europeans will encounter the same regulatory hurdles, however, and are likely to partner with traditional banks, as US-based Chime, Qapital and others have.

5G Smartphones and Education Tech

Eager to pick up a next-generation 5G smartphone? Kiplinger reports that sales start in 2019 for handsets with new radio chips that support faster 5G cellular service. The new phones will still be compatible with 4G, today’s most advanced cell network. The speedier phones will make up a tiny sliver of all phone sales at first, even in leading 5G nations, such as China, Japan, South Korea and the U.S. But in a few years 5G devices will kick-start global phone sales. By 2023, hundreds of millions of the devices will be in the hands of data-hungry consumers. One thing’s certain about the renewed competition in education tech: Schools can […]
