– call me! – txt me! – fb me! – tweet me!- email me!
People always have so much on their minds and remembering to call someone can become quite a challenge so a product needs to be designed that can be slid into everyone’s everyday life to eliminate forgotten contact arrangements and frustrating forgetfulness to call someone

Not including games are there really only 4 classes of apps?
1. Fixed content apps
A fixed body of content is displayed in the app. The style of presentation is often very compelling. For example:
The knot app
2. Task apps
The app connects to a service either on the phone or in the network that enables it to do something. For example:
A spirit level app
A webcam viewer app eg: my webcam
3. Social apps
The users supply the content. For example:
A twitter client
A photo sharing app
4. Combinations of 1,2,3
A combination of classes 1,2 and 3 above. For example; a GPS app that enables you and friends to meet at a Pizza place nearby.
