To succeed in the app creation and development field, you have to create something that people want. The best app in the world will flop if nobody wants to download it. The best way to ensure that people want your app is to find an “evergreen” niche and solve a problem that people in that niche are having. Another way to say this is to provide a service that people in that niche want.
Travel is the epitome of the “evergreen” niche in today’s economy. Not only do we love our vacations, but many people travel regularly as a part of their job or business. Here are some great free travel apps.
