Como Delivers More Than 1 Million Apps
DIY app building service Como has reached a milestone, announcing that more than 1 million apps have been created on its platform.
Along with this announcement, Como (formerly known as Conduit Mobile) has unveiled data to showcase mobile app creation trends across the United States. The data shows that more than 4,500 apps are created on a daily basis, with businesses from spas to boutiques leveraging Como to build apps and grow their mobile presence.
“Como’s dramatic growth shows the importance of app creation, especially for business owners, who need beautiful, native apps to address their customers’ needs,” said Li-at Karpel Gurwicz, vice president of marketing at Como. “Over 70 percent of apps created with Como now come from small and medium-sized businesses, and we expect this trajectory to continue as businesses increasingly recognize the strategic imperative of mobile technology. We look forward to continue working closely with our partners and publishers to reach the next major milestone.”
To coincide with the data, Como released a heatmap to further highlight mobile app trends (see image below). For example, the data shows that even though only 8 percent of Como apps created in the U.S. come from Florida, 21 percent of the country’s hotel apps originate from the state. Conversely, while Illinois only made up 4 percent of the total U.S. apps made through Como, the state makes up 11 percent of all transit apps created.
Aside from the data, it is important to note that Como recently extended its offering to local service providers through a partnership with Booker. Through the partnership, spas, clinics, salons and other local service providers can create their own dedicated booking app, which enables them to make appointment scheduling more efficient and simpler for customers.
