Mobile application development in the private sector is a hot market – brands are embracing mobile apps as a way to connect with their customers in new ways. Granicus' Government and the Mobile Advantage white paper states that "In 2014 there will be more mobile subscriptions than people on earth. So, while that covers just about everybody, the real question is what are people doing with mobile internet access?" Government agencies are also starting to take advantage of mobile apps as a means to better connect with their constituency. Many agencies across the country have built mobile apps to serve various needs. Some of the most widely endorsed apps are designed to provide a quick solution to address a number of typical issues affecting governments today such as: enabling community participation, increasing efficiency in document management and improved transparency in the government process.
