26 Crowdsourced Mobile Apps

From Crowdsourced Pizza Apps to Shopaholic Smartphone Apps

— August 6, 2014 — Tech
Crowdsourced mobile apps are gaining in popularity, as a variety of companies, start-ups and social activism entities have embraced and recognized the potential of using 'people power' to forge meaningful interactions and services.

As far as services are concerned, crowdsourced mobile apps allow users to draw on the power of people like themselves to get advice. This could range from advice on travel routes to reviews on restaurants, cafes and concerts.

Crowdsourced apps also have applications in personal activities like dating and romance; leveraging the advice or ratings of strangers adds a playful and eccentric aspect to dating.

Much of the charm and appeal of crowdsourced apps have to do with the fact that people realize that their use of the app is being influenced by other regular people rather than a company or other group that is difficult to relate to or trust.
