From Robbery-Alerting Apps to Cautionary Celiac Apps

 - Sep 25, 2016
From apps that alert police to bank robberies to platforms that help those with celiac disease figure out what to eat, the September 2016 mobile app trends demonstrate that our smartphone applications can be used for much more than fun and entertainment. Indeed, apps are increasingly becoming a valuable tool for helping people on an individual level and on a global scale.

When it comes to helping consumers deal with everyday issues, there are a number of apps that give consumers the power to take their health into their own hands. These apps include cautionary celiac apps, slumber-inducing sound apps and even cancer-detection apps.

On a larger scale, there are a number of apps that help solve issues on both the community level and the international level. As the September 2016 mobile app trends reveal, these platforms can range from senior-friendly rideshare apps that help the elderly get around town to terrorism-tracking apps that empower individuals to share information about terrorism threats.
