GeneralApps appetite for Mobile biz belly-up ? PinprofessionalBillWoodruff18-Aug-14 3:06 
Reading this article: "Smartphone owners’ appetite for new apps wanes" By Daniel Thomas in London and Tim Bradshaw in San Francisco, August 17, 2014 6:25 pm : [^] ...
 
I thought there were some prime hypotheticals missing, like:
 
1. most device/OS mobile app stores applications are crap: trivial, silly, useless ... even scams ? cf. "The Windows Store is a Cesspool of Scams — Why Doesn’t Microsoft Care?" Howtogeek.com's recent assault on the Windows App Store: [^].
 
2. there is a limit in what apps for small form-factor devices can usefully provide their users ? ... a limit related to the simple physicality mismatch of user and device ?
 
Of course, an obvious hypothetical is that Financial Times technology coverage is crap.
