Following milestone, Como releases comprehensive new data showcasing mobile app creation across America

NEW YORK, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Como™, the world's leading do-it-yourself app creation platform, has reached the one million app milestone and released new data showcasing mobile app creation trends across the United States. Today, over 4,500 apps are created daily as businesses ranging from spas, bars, boutiques, and online shops turn to Como to develop mobile apps in order to grow their mobile presence to maximize their profitability and compete in today's market.   

"Como's dramatic growth shows the importance of app creation, especially for business owners, who need beautiful, native apps to address their customers' needs," said Li-at Karpel Gurwicz, Vice President of Marketing at Como. "Over seventy percent of apps created with Como now come from small and medium-sized businesses, and we expect this trajectory to continue as businesses increasingly recognize the strategic imperative of mobile technology. We look forward to continue working closely with our partners and publishers to reach the next major milestone."  

In recognition of the numbers and in response to the resulting data pool, Como has published an informative heatmap highlighting some notable insights regarding mobile app creation in the U.S. market. According to the data, certain industries are far ahead of their state's mobile curve and are leading the way in mobile app adoption. For example, while 8% of the apps created in the U.S. come from Florida, 21% of the country's hotel apps originate from the Sunshine State.

Como recently extended its offerings to local service providers through a partnership with Booker, a cloud-based software provider that helps businesses automate their marketing and streamline back-office operations. With the new Como-powered Booker Customer App, spas, clinics, salons, and other services can have their own dedicated booking app, enabling them to make appointment scheduling more efficient.
