Every year the number of mobile customers is growing, and the share of mobile traffic on websites is increasing. However, it’s not always convenient to open a browser to order the desired item, view the balance on a credit card, or hire a car for an upcoming trip. The good news is that mobile applications eliminate unnecessary steps.
Yes, today you can, for example, hire a car from Green Motion Stansted Airport. A hire car has become much more accessible through a smartphone. All you need to do is open the car hire app, fill out the search form, and book it. Hundreds, thousands, and millions of other applications operate on the same principle.
