Changing the World, One App at a Time

Really? I can feel the skepticism in the air as I typed the headline above. Can one really change the world through an app? My short answer: yes.

I believe the general public considers apps or applications as just the latest fad. It came along with the iPhone and will be gone with the next technological marvel. Fair enough. Humans seem to be keen on adopting the latest fad whatever it may be. I question though just how new applications are. If we look at the concept of an app, I believe we will find some ongoing consistent themes which have been around for years.
