Building an app isn’t a cakewalk, and it would help if you had a concrete idea to fill gaps in the market to be a billion-dollar business. We have listed several app ideas that will rule 2024. Let’s move ahead.

Have you ever encountered a situation where you need some brilliant ideas but help to come up with any? Creative ideas strike us out of the blue, and a few are skeptical about executing them. Idea generation has this peculiar quality where you cannot force it. A myth about being a creative genius in the industry is that the world’s unicorns only came about because their founders experienced a rare flash of insight. And that’s not the case.

Before You Begin: A Realistic Look at Costs

When software developers do their job well, it’s hard for an end-user to imagine the many hours of planning, design, and development that went into the app. It’s supposed to feel seamless on the customer’s end, but if anyone promises they can design and build a highly usable software product for dirt cheap? I don’t believe it.

Dirt-cheap developers will not take a strategic approach that analyzes user workflows to create an optimal User Experience (UX). That requires talented staff, and an expert team charges a premium for their services.

What’s worse? Those cheap developers will likely rush the project, skip key steps, and create a sub-par product that needs to be future-proofed. In other words, if your app succeeds despite any usability problems, you’ll spend much more money fixing those technical issues. Your best bet is to find a mobile app developer that offers competitive rates while refusing to compromise on quality.

That means skipping the dirt-cheap one-person shop and aiming for a full-scale mobile app development company whose team asks probing questions, brings optimal value, and sees itself as a strategic partner that understands cross-platform development (not just a gang of coders).

We’ve published another post that details how much an app costs, so feel free to check it out. There are several factors, but this will give you a ballpark idea.

How To Come Up With A Good App Idea?

What Is eCommerce Personalization

In an HBO’s Silicon Valley episode, lovable loser Erlich Bachmann eats a bag of magic mushrooms and heads to the California Desert, seeking the creative insight he feels he needs to name a new app. Spoiler alert: His mission fails.

The truth about winning tech ideas is that the best ones usually arise from common-sense problem-solving. Hotjar is a bootstrapped startup earning over USD 29 million in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) and has never taken venture capital. Impressive, right?

What may surprise you is that Hotjar Founder David Darmanin’s first two startups failed miserably (his words). He thought the first two ideas were so good they’d sell themselves, but he was wrong. Darmanin did things differently with Hotjar, first validating the concept for a marketing technology platform, then building a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and only then refining the product based on user feedback.

That’s excellent news for the rest of us because it dispels the myth of creative genius. You don’t need to catch lightning in a bottle to find your winning app idea. Instead, try these techniques and see what app ideas they spark.

  • Browse through the app stores Like a band of Hobbits, you’re going on an adventure! It’s time to wander the app stores, enter keywords for products or concepts that intrigue you, and follow each thread. This is the “explorer” phase, where you poke around and see what you find. Keep your imagination unrestricted here. Unlock your mind to all the possibilities. There will be time to refine and critique later but keep your creative flow open.
  • Find user pain points Study the review section of any app that interests you. There’s gold here! Does someone complain that they can’t find an Android reminder app that keeps the notifications at the top of the screen as the native iOS reminder app does? That might be a winning idea.

    Or it won’t be. The Android platform limits reminder apps or some other app already does this well, and our reviewer has yet to find it. Your next step is to Google that issue to see if:

    • It’s a widespread problem that ruffled plenty of feathers.
    • If a solution already exists.
    • Whether you can improve upon any existing solutions.

    Step 3 is critical. Even if a solution does exist, you can do it better, advertise it more successfully, or create a better User Experience (UX) that soaks up most of the market share. You’ve stumbled across a great app idea if you can do any of these things.

  • Brainstorm with colleagues, family, and friends Regarding idea generation, a certain magic happens when you bounce ideas off intelligent, creative people. The key is finding someone who is an expansive thinker rather than a critic. Later, when it’s time to validate your idea, it will be time to hit up your more critical friends whose opinions you respect.

    A good critic will find the flaws in your thoughts before you spend a bunch of money pursuing them. They’ll play a valuable role, but critics could be more helpful during the idea generation phase when your mind needs to remain open to all the possibilities.

  • Search for web app ideas on social media Never before has so much consumer data been available to entrepreneurs. You can learn much by studying Facebook, Instagram posts, LinkedIn groups, and other social media sites. Look for groups and influencers related to the audience you want to serve. You can also use sentiment analysis tools like Audiense to scrape user insights off social media, giving you complete reports of what different demographics think, feel, and post en masse about a subject.

  • Browse new app ideas on Reddit, Kickstarter, Angel list, and product hunt Reddit and other internet forums like Quora can spark cool app ideas, with people openly sharing the problems they want you to come along and solve. Kickstarter, AngelList, and Product Hunt feature new software startups and platforms, and browsing those sites might unlock some inspiration.

  • Off-line networking: Attend meetups and events for founders Author and podcaster Tim Ferriss reminds his audience that they are “the average of the five closest people to them.” Connect with other tech entrepreneurs if you want to be a tech entrepreneur. They will inspire you and hold you to a higher standard. Plus, talking shop with them may spark your next big idea.

How To Validate Your App Idea?

Alright. You’ve stumbled across an idea that might be the next big thing—or even the next small thing that generates regular revenue and lets you live on your terms. Whatever the case, it’s an exciting time for you. And now? We’ll ask you to calm down, and it’s time to take a step back and ask difficult, critical questions. Two questions, in particular, should drive your analysis at this point.

Question #1: Is your app idea technologically feasible?

Here’s the story of an entrepreneurial Uber driver who developed an excellent app idea. Since most rideshare drivers work for Uber and its competitors simultaneously, they run multiple driver apps simultaneously—accepting rides as they come and shutting down the other apps. It’s a manual process and a hassle for drivers, especially when two ride requests come in simultaneously. In fact, at the time, Uber made it so that if they missed too many ride requests, they could miss out on specific bonuses.

He devised an idea for an app allowing rideshare drivers to run multiple driver apps simultaneously, automatically accepting the first ride request and shutting down the competing apps until the ride was complete. This sounded like a winning idea until he learned how APIs work.

API technology allows one app to interface with another (e.g., Expedia connects with the airlines’ APIs to aggregate fares and book tickets). Since this ridesharing driver app would need permission to interface with each competing app’s APIs, it was not technologically feasible. Uber would have no incentive to grant him access to their API since it would draw drivers away from their dominant platform. Even if Uber and the others initially gave him access to their API, they could revoke access anytime, so his business could disappear overnight.

The app idea was a bust. It may have been a good app idea regarding market demand, but it was not likely to work as a long-term business strategy. Luckily, he spoke with an honest developer who explained the issues before he spent loads of time and money on the project. The good news? Shortly afterward, he launched a different business, which remains profitable today and allows him to travel the world as a digital nomad.

This is a reminder that plenty of viable business models exist. If your current idea could be better, you need to figure it out sooner rather than later to start building the one that will set you free. As they say in Silicon Valley, “Fail fast. Fail Forward.”

Question #2: Are people willing to pay for your app?

This is a question of market demand. Unless there’s a significant demand for the product you envision, you won’t be able to cover your startup and development costs, much less turn a profit. The following steps will help you validate your idea from a market demand perspective:

  • Analyze similar apps on Crunchbase, app store reviews, G2, etc.
  • Conduct keyword research, paying attention to search volume.
  • Ask potential customers using surveys, social media polls, and Reddit forums. While these are not scientific surveys, they’ll give you a sense of the market demand.

Understanding Your Audience

You’ve undoubtedly stumbled across some poorly designed apps in your day, and you probably wondered who they had in mind when they created them. Certainly not you!

That’s the question you don’t want your users asking themselves, and you can avoid this by understanding your target audience intimately. This will inform your app’s look and feel and guide your marketing strategy, workflow design, pricing strategy, and more.

Getting to know your target audience means asking the following questions.

Who will primarily use your app?

Don’t just think about demographics (e.g., age, gender). Consider psychographics (e.g., urban hipsters who love craft beer and live music). The way people think is more indicative of their behavior than immutable characteristics like ethnicity and biological sex.

What will they use your app to accomplish?

This might seem evident until it’s not. Your users might end up using your app in ways you never intended, and that’s fine. Silicon Valley abounds with pivot stories. Instagram began as a check-in app called Burbn that integrated games like Mafia Wars, but the photo-sharing element took off. Once that happened, Instagram scrapped all the other features crowding its interface and becoming the world’s premier photo-sharing app. Pivots happen. Watch closely so you can adapt.

What makes your app idea different?

Before Facebook and Myspace, a social networking site called Friendster captured the world’s attention very briefly. People loved it. They loved it so much that boatloads of users tried to access it too quickly, and those early 2000s pre-cloud servers couldn’t handle all the traffic. Nobody wanted to wait 30 seconds for a page to load, so they dropped Friendster like a hot brick.

When Facebook came along, it took a different approach. They began with universities, launching one by one at various institutions, waiting until the hype built up from nearby schools and the students who were left out started to complain. This allowed Facebook to gate their users and buy new server space as demand grew. It also created the sense of being part of an exclusive club, unlike Myspace, which “old people” and high school students couldn’t access. Facebook continued this strategy until 2008, when it opened the platform to everyone. The rest is history.

The moral of the story is? Facebook stood out not because of its technology, per se, but because the founders adopted a strategy that ensured quick download speeds and social exclusivity to early adopters. How will your app stand out?

Marketing And Funding Your App

In addition to understanding your target audience, you’ll need to think carefully about your marketing and funding strategy. While these two concepts seem distinct, they’re related in more ways than you might think. A bootstrapped startup will likely use a product-led growth strategy, which relies on end-user, word-of-mouth recommendations to drive adoption. By contrast, a startup with USD 1 million in angel funding can employ various tactics, from influencer marketing to paid advertising.

How will you market your app?

There are many different app marketing channels; we can’t scratch the surface here. Whether you use blogs, influencer marketing, social media marketing, product-led growth, or any combination of strategies, you’ll want to take this question seriously and tailor it to your product.

The most important thing is adapting your strategy to your audience. Are you targeting sales professionals with a business-to-business app? If your target audience is not hanging out on Tumblr, Instagram could be the perfect channel.

How will you fund your app?

Every new business has startup costs. Even if you’re an experienced developer with a vivid experience in mobile app development, who can design and build an app from scratch, there are opportunity costs in doing everything yourself—and limits to what one person can accomplish.

Most app founders enter their pocketbooks and contact family and friends for their initial seed money. Once they start showing revenue, even if they aren’t making a profit, they often turn to venture capitalists for cash and guidance.

Other startups, like Hotjar and ClickFunnels, never took venture capital, and they grew slower, but the founders maintained complete control of their businesses. That has its advantages as well.

Taking or rejecting funding is a personal choice but requires serious thought. Choose the strategy that makes sense for the long-term success of your startup, and consult an attorney who understands startups before signing any paperwork with investors.

What Are Some Trending App Ideas in 2023

One good way to find a niche in the app marketplace is to look at the latest mobile app development trends. While you probably won’t go head-to-head with the big guys, you might discover an underserved niche within one of these categories. In any case, it’s an excellent place to start if you want to find simple app ideas for beginners. And some simple app ideas can grow into some of the best. Here are some apps that are in demand in 2024.

Dating apps

The singles market is lucrative. If you’ve been around, you’d know the glut of options available in the market. Dating apps have captured the world’s imagination, with revenues crossing USD 3.85 billion in 2022. Like Bumble’s “women message first” approach, the winners found a unique angle. Others target niche populations, like Nomad Soulmates, which helps location-independent globetrotters find love.

Choosing said the location could be pretty tricky, but Bumble has made significant advancements in this area. They provide “BumbleSpot,” a network of venues formally certified as secure rendezvous spots with icebreakers. Despite the various ways technology has improved, dating applications are still relatively simple. So Syncd uses personality tests based on psychology to assist users in finding matches. On some dating apps, you can look for folks with brown hair, blue eyes, and whatnot.

The potential is endless with the technology we have today. The way people portray themselves in photos and videos is frequently superficial and doesn’t give others a good idea of who they are. Again, a revolutionary app would depict a person as they are. Maybe an AI that builds true-to-life, deep fakes of our Instagram posts?

Social networking apps

Everyone knows social media is big business. While you’re not likely to become the next Facebook (Facebook seems to have that #1 position on lock for the foreseeable future), plenty of niche social networking sites have made a name for themselves. Nextdoor, for instance, targets people who want to connect with their neighbors to sell items and solve local problems.

Social networking apps have gone a notch up with novel ideas launching in the market. ‘Twitch,’ for instance, is a live-streaming gaming platform where creators can communicate in real-time with their viewers. While the audience observes and participates, players can record themselves playing well-known games like Fortnite and Minecraft.

Similarly, with apps like ‘TikTok.’ users can create content to their liking and monetize their skills.

Quiz apps

Quiz apps are a category within mobile gaming that has gained popularity lately, with niche apps like Newsmeister, which tests your knowledge of current events. Others have come up with a clever twist on the quiz format. For example, the Psych! The app will have you coming up with fake answers to trivia questions and seeing if your friends can tell them apart from real solutions.

Food delivery apps

We’re lazy creatures, and that’s why so many of us are willing to spend $20 to get Taco Bell delivered straight to our door. Food delivery apps like UberEats dominate that market, but many smaller apps have added something unique. MealDrop, for instance, connects hungry customers with local chefs for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Taxi booking apps

If you travel worldwide, you’ll find Uber in almost every major city. If you look deeper, you’ll also find local challengers to Uber that often do it cheaper.

Travel apps

You probably think of airfare and car rental services like Kayak and Expedia when you think of travel apps, but there are many other ways to target this industry. For example, XE Currency Converter makes it easy to see what something costs in your currency, and PackPoint puts your packing list on your phone.

Betting apps

Betting apps like 22Bet and MyBookie tap into the USD 262 billion markets for gambling. Before jumping into this heavily regulated field, understand your local and regional gambling laws.

Fitness apps

Have you heard of Covid-15? That’s the 15 extra pounds many Americans have put on since Covid started (around 6.8 kg for the rest of the world). Many are trying to lose that excess weight, and fitness apps like MyFitnessPal (which counts calories) and JEFIT (ideal for tracking weight-lifting workouts) are helping people reach their goals.

Video editing apps

You’ve probably heard of the big names in video editing, like Apple’s iMovie (for iOS) and Adobe’s cross-platform Premier Rush. Still, plenty of small video editing apps have unique benefits—like Filmmaker Pro, which is touted for its greenscreen feature.

Photo editing apps

As with video editing, many big players like Photoshop are on the market, but many others let you play with special effects. FaceApp became famous overnight because it allowed users to swap gender, change their ages, and play with different hairstyles.

Ticket booking apps

Airfare aggregators usually come to mind when considering ticket booking apps, but this is a much broader category. For example, the Peek app allows you to book tours from your iPhone while on vacation.

Cryptocurrency apps

An entire industry has sprouted surrounding cryptocurrency trade, and apps like Robinhood and Coinbase have made solid profits. Each has its business model, with some making money off commissions and others making money off membership fees.

Personal finance apps

The personal finance app market is wide. Tracking investments is one area of focus you can do with Robinhood, as mentioned above, or any of its competitors. However, you can also record your expenses and make a budget with apps like YNAB (which stands for You Need a Budget).

News apps

All the primary news services offer apps to keep their readers informed, but there’s an entire industry for news aggregator apps that take a different approach. The AllSides app, for instance, uses an algorithm to assess an article’s political slant. That way, users can understand what the culture-makers say across the political spectrum.

Video communication apps

We’re all familiar with Zoom and FaceTime, but there are countless video communication apps, each with its features. You could add a unique set of features that captures a niche. Remember, there was a pre-pandemic time when Zoom didn’t dominate the market. They came along and offered a better solution than Skype, and their timing couldn’t have been better.

Video streaming apps

Netflix and Hulu may have cornered the market on popular shows and movies, but smaller apps like Curiosity Stream, which features only documentaries, have found their niche.

To-Do apps

Getting organized is a massive industry, and many apps take different approaches to getting things done. There’s a popular methodology called Getting Things Done (GTD), and many apps like OmniFocus have built their entire business out of the philosophy created by David Alan. You may have a winning app idea if you devise your take on task management.

Book reading apps

Kindle and iBooks are the only players in town regarding book reading apps; other apps offer unique features. Oodles, for instance, offers over 50,000 free eBooks in many different languages.

Grocery shopping apps

A whole industry of apps is built around grocery shopping, from delivery services like Instacart to coupon-finding apps like Flipp. Can you offer a unique take on the USD 11.7 trillion grocery industry?

Events apps

We’re all familiar with apps like Ticketmaster and Eventbrite, which help you find and book concert tickets and other events. You should realize there are smaller niches within the event space, like 10Times, which allows you to find events and expos. This uniquely serves marketing professionals, helping them discover their place in a crowded field.

Job search apps

LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and Indeed have apps that help you find jobs—but what about smaller, more niche sites? Many apps target specific industries (like creative professionals) or job seekers in particular locations. While it’s hard to take on the big guys, you may stumble across a niche with which one specific industry falls in love.

EV charging station finder apps

When a customer purchases an electric vehicle, it cannot be maintained traditionally. You’ll need some apps to find charging stations, particularly a charging station finder app. An EV Charging Station Finder App will display the location of charging stations in your area. The app will provide information such as the plugs and the stations’ support.

These apps allow you to find the charging station’s ratings, real-time availability, photos, and descriptions. Users can also discover and add EV charging points. Users can also enable notifications to send an alert when a charging station is nearby.

NFT marketplace development apps

The non-fungible token industry has been booming. The popularity of the NFT marketplace development is already a reason for the growth of the influencer community, as is the introduction of new gaming communities and the rise in the popularity of digital art. NFTs have numerous applications, enabling individuals to create a lifetime’s revenue streams. With NFTs’ increasing popularity, creating an NFT marketplace is the key to launching a future-proof business today.

Blockchain-based money transfer apps

Western Union and MoneyGram have long dominated the remittance (money transfer) industry. However, new players and startups attempt to make the scenario competitive by providing various money transfer services. Companies still adopt digital currency and blockchain technology to enable remittance services like Bitcoin.

Companies are attempting to solve various issues with this service, including high transfer costs, limited money distribution methods, limited brand options, limited ways to deal with money, etc. The cryptocurrency market is still new to reaching the migrant population masses, but it holds enormous potential in the future.

Bike servicing apps

People are getting used to the on-demand delivery sector. A bike service app will allow your users to book bike services and repairs online through the app. The industry is growing rapidly and is highly promising in the market.

Home services apps

Home service apps are a must-have for any house that has installed and repaired household products. Previously, we had to call someone for assistance, which took more time and energy.

You can now access thousands of home services thanks to technological advancements and mobile applications. Numerous mobile app development companies create mobile applications for a variety of industries.

Payment apps

More than two billion people use mobile payments worldwide, with millions more joining the ranks yearly. With mobile payment adoption expected to reach 4.8 billion by 2025, leaders in a specific country or region could see significant revenue growth, especially since many apps are heavily integrated into the provider’s other financial services. The most recent annual increase was 900 million new mobile payment app users worldwide in 2020. This was due to the coronavirus pandemic, which caused vendors and customers to spend less cash in stores.

AR apps

The mobile augmented reality (AR) industry is anticipated to reach a value of around 17 billion dollars in 2022 before exceeding 36 billion dollars by 2026. The market comprises visualization software, ads, and digital commodities like Glassdoor, and in-app purchases for augmented reality applications.

Augmented reality solves various business challenges in multiple industries, including retail, business, gaming, healthcare, and even the military. You need to monitor these technologies to predict where the industry is headed.

Meditation and wellness apps

The revenue in the Meditation and Wellness Apps segment is projected to reach US$3.71bn in 2022. The coronavirus pandemic has boosted downloads of mental wellness apps, particularly those focused on meditation, anxiety relief, and sleep aids. This is one of the most sort after apps in the market. Now is a perfect time if you’re considering jumping on the bandwagon.

Food planner apps

Meal planning apps are a digital trend that isn’t going away anytime soon—and for a good reason. They enable users to select specific meal plans and recipes, create shopping lists, and track nutritional data from the convenience of a mobile device. Many meal planning apps provide a free version or trial period; some offer upgraded plans with valuable features such as a calendar or grocery list. Continue reading to find the best meal planning app for your lifestyle and health goals while considering cost and usability.

Train tracking apps

Railways are one of the world’s most popular modes of transportation. In addition to it, it is the cheapest way of traveling anywhere. Every day, millions of travelers benefit from excellent service. Because of technological advancements, every industry seeks new ways to stay in touch with its customers. People seek the best phone apps to help them with their jobs.

Voice translation apps

Every interaction begins and ends with communication. You want to buy something, so you inquire about the cost. You want to make a business proposal and have a business meeting. Communication is the key to success; we must all be on the same page and speak the same language. Intelligent voice translation technologies now support modern communication, erasing language differences. A solid voice translation solution promotes business growth and supports business processes at all levels.

Language apps

The language learning app sector evolved from desktop courses in the mid-2000s, which offered classes via CDs, desktop apps, or the web. The development of language learning apps for mobile devices resulted in the gamification of the sector, with prizes for completing a course, flashcards, health bars, and other gaming features to make language learning more informal and enjoyable. This could be your chance to develop innovative ideas in the market.

Reserve parking apps

Among the thousands of wonders bestowed upon the world by the IT industry, one of the unique solutions is on-demand car parking mobile app development. The benefits of smart parking management apps have been demonstrated throughout the world. According to IoT Analytics research, more than 11% of public parking spaces worldwide are now smart. As a result, the software development community is now reaping the benefits.

Karaoke apps

According to Market Research Future’s (MRFR) Comprehensive Research Report, Karaoke Market Size, Share, Industry Information by Type, Application, and Region, the market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 2.41% to USD 6,127.8 Million by 2030. Karaoke is a popular form of entertainment where a vocalist uses a karaoke machine and a microphone to perform prerecorded music. The karaoke industry is expanding at a breakneck pace.

Split expenses apps

Bill-splitting apps are mobile applications that help you keep track of shared expenses such as rent, groceries, restaurant bills, travel expenses, and so on. Users download the app to their phones and create a group to share their expenses. The bill-sharing app automatically calculates and distributes everyone’s share of the costs.

Users can easily track who owes what to whom and keep track of settlements. Using a bill-splitting app is a convenient and cost-effective way to handle expenses with your roommates, friends, family, and coworkers.

Coupons selling apps

Customers enjoy getting a ‘deal.’ Completing a transaction with a discount or incentive is a good and reassuring feeling. But this has given rise to the growing coupon industry. Why not try this app idea in the market?

Tenant finder apps

Finding a place to rent or finding the right tenants for a place is gruesome, to say the least. What comes to the rescue are the landlord apps that assist in listing apartments for rent, tracking time, screening applicants, monitoring utilities, posting bookkeeping entries, scheduling showings, electronic document signing, virtual lease management, and site inspections other things.

These apps manage everything from currency conversion and hour tracking to renter payments and maintenance contractor services for landlords, as well as smart apartment management, using only your Android or Apple smartphone.

Home security apps

The past year, from COVID-19 issues to social unrest, has raised consumer awareness about personal safety, making safety top-of-mind and the need for personal safety solutions even more prevalent. Furthermore, as schools closed, events were canceled, and remote work increased, consumers spent more time at home.

The pandemic catalyzed the increase in the need and popularity of mobile safety solutions.

Period tracker/birth control apps

Birth control apps, also known as cycle tracking apps, menstrual cycle tracking apps, family planning apps, and fertility apps, are intended for menstruating women who want to keep track of their cycle and fertility. The femtech market is expected to reach $50 billion by 2025; try making the most of it.

Find househelp apps

We live in an era where the internet is used for everything from booking a taxi to ordering food or groceries and scheduling laundry to be delivered to the customer’s door. The maid service app can provide the best housekeeping and cleaning services solution, assisting in establishing a thriving home-services industry.

Finding The Right Development Partner

Choosing the right software development partner to build your app is more than technical skills. This may sound counterintuitive if you’ve never seen a development team at work, but there’s much more to software than coding. Focusing solely on coding is like hiring the strongest bricklayer to build your house—without hiring an architect or looking at blueprints.

At Net Solutions, we have a team of Business Analysts who will help you understand your user workflow, Designers who specialize in User Experience, and Project Managers who work with you to translate your vision and interface with our technical team.

That’s the absolute minimum you should look for in a development partner, but we recommend going a step beyond those requirements. Whether you work with Net Solutions or another talented team, choose partners who communicate clearly and aren’t afraid to ask tough questions.

Is your vision feasible? Does it need some tweaks? Does it make sense to build everything you’re looking for into the first version of the app, or should you take a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) approach—saving money and allowing you to base future feature development on customer feedback? Finding an honest, straightforward team that understands the big picture puts you well on your way toward building a successful app.

Net Solutions has spent the past 20 years helping tech entrepreneurs follow their dreams, building award-winning apps for iOS and Android devices and web-based platforms that have turned startups into multi-million dollar companies. You can scroll through our customer success stories, including our work for international brands like Nike, Unilever, American Golf, and the Harvard Business Review.

American Golf, for example, saw stupendous success and results from their collaboration with Net Solutions. They had an increase in traffic (also greater visits to the physical store), higher conversion rates, centralized event management at physical stores, improved order management, better fulfillment coordination, and faster internal reporting. Moreover, the major takeaway has been that established retailers can integrate their brick-and-mortar sales efforts with the eCommerce strategy, excelling at both.

Contact Net Solutions today, and we’ll help you bring your vision to life.
