Big Industry Moves from Desktop to Mobile

As we’re encroaching on nearly 5 billion mobile phone users worldwide – each of whom spend an average of 5 hours a day on their mobiles – it’s no surprise that industries are putting all of their efforts into developing mobile apps and sites as opposed to desktop ones. There are so many things we can do with our mobiles, from ordering taxis or food for dinner, to booking flights and finding that special someone. It’s been predicted that the days where we won’t even use a desktop isn’t so far away. Here we check out what industries have been making the big shift from desktop to mobile.

Online Casinos

Since the first online casino opened in 1994, more and more world-renowned brands are opening up shop online. With advancements in technology, online casinos are colourful, made with high-quality graphics, and full of freebies and bonuses. In the past couple of years we’ve started seeing a huge influx of online casino mobile apps in the Google Play and App Stores. And why not? Their successes on desktop apps only show potential for success with mobile apps – and with fun offers like a mobile casino bonus, such as free spins or money, punters will tapping into these cash pools from the convenience of their mobile.

Ebanking for the Future

Although PayPal was introduced as one of the first online-only payment service almost 20 years ago, it’s taken a while for banking and ecommerce to really advance much beyond that. But in recent years we’ve seen a shift of improved mobile sites, apps and banking from well-known banking institutions. On top of that, the introduction of the bitcoin and other e-currencies has pushed the need for betting mobile banking. Volatile markets and e-commerce require users to have 24/7 access to their banking needs, meaning better mobile banking experiences for us all.


Our favorite games have slowly been shifting to mobile apps for years. Improved technology means better graphics, quicker response times, less bugs and crashing and more fun for us on the go. When Pokemon GO was released in July 2016, the mobile gaming world shifted again and the stakes became higher. Cheap virtual reality (VR) converters for your mobile phone have made VR more accessible to everyone and breakthroughs in augmented reality (AR) are just around the corner. We anticipate even more of our favorite games, classic and neo-classic, to make the switch to mobile gaming. Perhaps we can say goodbye to our desktops, but our classic game consoles? We’re not sure we’ll ever be ready for that.

Anything Can Be Found Online

Amazon has long dominated the online shopping market – and without the need to have a physical store – but other top retailers have jumped on the bandwagon. Now, online-only retail sites are a dime a dozen and many are focusing on mobile apps and keeping desktop sites to limited use. App-only industries have expanded past retail to service apps, like booking taxis, finding parking spots in the city, getting a dog-walker and even online dating. Almost anything that can be booked or bought online can be booked or bought on your mobile. And if there isn’t an app for your favorite cosplay outfits yet, there’s sure to be one tomorrow – or maybe the day after.
