Numerous companies still do not have a mobile strategy or offer only a responsive version of their website. Even if good intention is there, efforts are still insufficient to satisfy the web surfers since it is only a content re-adaptation. However, the user seeks a totally different mobile experience. Sometimes, decision-makers find it challenging to get into a mobile app development. Hence, we invite you to list the three myths that prevent you from taking action.
Myth n°1: Chatbots will substitute mobile apps
Although the media has been devoting more and more attention to chatbots over the recent months, the reality is quite different. Indeed, if mobile apps are still at the pimply adolescent stage, the bots are only in their infancy. They have not even learned to stand on their own.
