Small Business App Features
If your app is installed onto a phone this means an icon with your logo is added to their phone too. The average user looks at their phone 150 times a day so consciously or subconsciously, your logo, business name and brand will get ingrained into their psyche. Guaranteeing that they will never forget your business again!
