To every cloud, there is a silver lining. Although the outbreak of COVID-19 devasted the whole world, it also brought in new opportunities for all. And there are some, who never let any opportunity go to waste. There has been a significant change in user behaviour, especially in 2020, and the app developers wish to encash on whatever comes their way. Just last year alone, mobile app downloads saw 7 percent rise, with over 218 billion downloads. With this, the nature of apps is getting highly intriguing. Take for instance Clubhouse, an audio-based social networking app, which was launched last year, is garnering tremendous lauds. Call it the market demand or the audience’s expectations, apps like Clubhouse are on a quest to be creative and give the consumers what exactly they are looking for. Or on the other hand, such apps are here to create a need. This article talks about how to build an app like Clubhouse, what makes it stand apart, features to use to create such an app, and more.
A picture speaks volumes, right? But a video showcases real emotions which are worth thousands of pictures or maybe even more. Not that we are taking away the hard work put in by the artists. But guess what, in today’s world, where people have the urge to get things done instantly, they need something that grabs their attention quickly or rather easily. Well, why wouldn’t some moving images on your mobile screen heighten your curiosity? We say mobile and not desktop because according to a study, a user spends about 71 percent of screen time on their mobile and more than 90 percent of that mobile time is spent on using the apps.
Developing impeccable software is everyone's dream destination. However, the journey that a developer takes to reach this destination defines the success rate. It is not a surprise, but most of the projects fail because they miss the deadline, there is a communication gap, the project is way out of the budget, the functionality and design aspect has gone for a toss, the software has malfunctions, or the user did not connect with it.
One of the most interesting features of technology is its power to persuade people and change their perception. We, humans, are traders by birth, and with technology at our feet, the face of the world has significantly changed. And more so, it has changed the way we value things. Take for instance this tweet by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsery. His tweet was put up on sale on Valuables by Cent, a portal that enables Twitter users to bid and buy tweets in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
Staring at your bucket list of the countries to visit which remained unachieved in 2020? It is sad, isn’t it? Not able to travel or socialize, is essentially taking away the essence of our existence. The pandemic and lockdown have chained us at home. While we are grateful that we have food, money, and shelter to survive, but staying confined in the four walls has surely taken the toll on most. As per the US Travel Association, in 2019, a total of 1.1 trillion dollars was spent by travellers across the globe. However, in March 2021, the World Travel and Tourism Council confirmed the impact of COVID-19 where this sector suffered a catastrophic loss of 3.8 trillion pounds in 2020. This was one of the major reasons for the drop in the world economy.
Growth, evolution, or success has been never by mere chance. Some combined forces work together to provide the desired outcome. The amalgamation of entities that make an app popular is the motive behind the app, how well it is built, what it offers to its audience, the number of downloads, and a few other things. However, what keeps the app in the heart of the people is the kind of impact it has on them. And mind you the impact must be coherent and remarkable.
Creating a mobile app is an art, and the one who creates it is an artist. Surely the app might benefit millions, but laying the groundwork, working on the production, crafting various aspects, and then going live – to see an app from an idea to its fruition is a mammoth task. And to build an app that caters to the mental health sector is colossal to another level. Precisely because these days mental health is a priority for all. And the stigma over asking for help has considerably reduced. When in need, people can easily turn to a therapist. But finding the right therapist is a task and will also burn a hole in their pocket. This is why most prefer downloading a mental wellness app as it seems affordable and convenient.

The hardworking sellers and artists toil day and night to create amazing products. They go through several hardships to make that product reach you at your comfort.
