There is no denying the power of mobile apps according to a recent article WPP’s Sorrell hails the power of apps in the United Kingdom’s The Guardian. Indeed, the stats about apps are impressive:

* The average iOS user has downloaded approximately 60 apps per device
* Cumulative App Store downloads will soon overtake iTunes music and video downloads
* Gartner predicated 17.7 billion app downloads and $15.1 billion in app revenue

The effects that apps will have on advertising are equally noteworthy. Last week at Mobile World Congress, Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPP, a London-based advertising holding company stated, “Apps are a classic example of this shift from broadcast to multifaceted engagement,” he said. “They enable brands to connect with consumers at numerous touch points, whether at home or in the shops … It opens a lot of opportunities for our clients, but also challenges.”

Furthermore, Sorrell recognized the power of Location Based Services (LBS) applications and their future role in advertising saying, “Location targeting is the holy grail that we as advisers on behalf of our clients are looking for.” Sounds right up our alley”¦
