8 years ago this week, Apple’s App store was born on July 9, 2008. I remember my first experience in the App store; there were so few apps that I looked at EVERY app in less than an hour. Many of the apps didn’t work properly; some crashed upon launch, most had extremely limited functionality. This brought up the question, why make an app if you have limited (and more often limited experience) IT resources? Many companies created apps for First Move Advantage or to show they were innovators. Competitors followed suit with app creation.
