It is from 2007 when Apple launches the iPhone that the world of mobile applications begins to develop and revolutionize. Previously, they were difficult to download and impractical, but since this product was released, thousands and thousands of Apps began to be available through the App Store to install on the phone.

Furthermore, with the emergence of mobile applications came a practical solution to processes and functionalities that were cumbersome to perform from a mobile website. In fact, a mobile app is not the same as a mobile website. An app is a program that we install on the device and a website is on the internet and you access it through the browser and you do not need to have any program installed to use it.

Mobile applications and advertising
