Bundleware/Co-software - another business model for mobile apps

By chdchan ·
Tags: Cloud, Mobility
To those developers having offered their apps for free, a more lucrative business model can be bundleware. E.g. where apps are bundled with mobile devices (phones/tabs) or other software packages such as those for x86 platforms. For the latter scenario, the apps may be companion software to their x86 counterparts, possibly sharing same data on cloud and/or synchronizing each other system on different platforms. And the additional possibility is an android VM or emulator like Bluestacks will eventually able to share the same storage and data with their host system when the inter-platform boundary/barrier may start to blur and dissolve. By then android apps can actually become more popular co-software of the x86 architecture.

With a communication server, a mobile app as CEOware can poll for others' available time slots for a meeting, broadcast agenda and make group appointment requests. Also the CEO can post important subjects for voting or requests for advice by members of the management board and have results fed back in no time.
