The mobile application market is storming into this world with heavy feet, and it would appear that they are the future of a rapidly growing world of hyperconnectivity. These small icons have the ability to carry big ideas and may just play a large role in the future of the human race. Here is a quote from Matt Galligan, (co-founder of SimpleGeo, Circa, and Socialthing,) sharing his view, ’’ In my opinion, the future of mobile is the future of everything”. Our phones have become such a large part of our day-to-day navigation, and with a continuously growing on-the-go mentality, apps are flourishing.

Applications are still very young in their development and show signs of a very impressive future. We at the Daily Steak believe that it is time for mobile applications to take a step in bettering society.
