Do I need a mobile app if my website is mobile-responsive?

It wasn’t too long ago that store owners were asking if they really needed a website. After all, they already had a big sign in front of their shop, so how was a website going to help them?

So the new argument goes a little something like, “Do I really need an app? I already have a website.”

The short answer is yes.

The mobile revolution is creating a new buzz in businesses and the eCommerce space is no exception to this. Mobile eCommerce app for your business is changing how online shopping is done.

Over 1.2 billion people worldwide access the internet from their smartphones. That’s four times the population of the US.
