It was not until mid way through the first decade of the Twenty First Century that words like mobile applications and web applications and web portals came into common parlance. Mobile applications are not only portals or doorways through the web. They are portals and doorways through many of the problems and conflicts that arise on a daily basis. Mobile applications can include everything from games to devices on which someone can immediately text a taxi cab without having the number.
