It’s a rapidly changing world we inhabit, with the availability of immense mobile computing and transacting capability in everyone’s pocket, purse, or backpack. Of course, internet-based retail remains relevant, but savvy retailers also know it must be supported by the development of applications for smartphones. That’s because mobile literally covers the earth, with a mobile phone subscription for every person, according to data from the United Nations.
The latest report from IdeaWorksCompany applies the rise of the mobile age to the ancillary revenue revolution. IdeaWorksCompany researched the in-path booking capabilities of the mobile applications offered by the world’s largest 25 airlines.
