Smart phones and tablets provide a rich and easy-to-use interface that is always available because users always have their phones within reach! Consumers have a unique relationship with their phone it has quite literally become their interface to the online world. A recent survey showed that more than half of smartphone users considered it their most important possession. And when your products are controlled by a smartphone, they benefit from this association.
Most hardware products in the home as well as in industry are still controlled using buttons, screens, or dedicated remote controls. Each requires a detailed manual, because each user-interface is different. Adding even the simplest of new features requires costly hardware changes; and manufacturers don't have access to the kinds of usage metrics that are now standard in mobile applications and on the web.
As soon as you add mobile control to a product, you gain the flexibility and agility to quickly deploy new features as well as to leverage the connectivity of the phone. You also join one of the hottest and largest growth markets in the world mobile apps and connected devices. Consumers have demonstrated a huge demand for such apps in every other aspect of their lives and your product is no exception.
