Creating and selling mobile apps is almost an industry unto itself today. There are thousands that consumers are willing to pay a dollar or two to get on their phones, and many others that they'll happily add to their phones for free. This session will take a quick look at the universe of apps that apply to selling merchandise, tickets or travel accommodations and project their development over the next few years. Then it will dive deep into examples of mobile apps that are available now. Our expert—and opinionated—speakers will demonstrate apps and explain why each one hits or misses. The app industry is young enough that standards are yet to develop, so be prepared for lively debate among our presenters as they share opinions about what they like and don't like.
