A History of:San Francisco Mobile App Development

San Francisco has always been a landmark city for cultural advancement. From the gold rushes of the 1800s to the dot-com boom in the early 2000s, San Francisco has consistently been a forward-thinking city driven by creativity, grit and striving for the next innovation in business and technology.

Since the mid-2000s, startups and new companies began to emerge out of the success of companies like Yelp, OpenTable, and SalesForce. This created a startup boom that led to breakout companies like Github, Square, and Twitch. No matter the industry, San Francisco quickly became the go-to place to start your company. Despite cities like Seattle and Austin becoming the technology hubs of the future, San Francisco is still the leading city in the tech market.

Since the early days of app development, the Bay Area has been raising the bar. And why shouldn’t they? Some of the world’s biggest mobile companies were founded in San Francisco and the Bay Area. AirBnb was started from a simple MVP (minimum viable product) model and grew to be a $37 billion company. Still, Airbnb only the second most valuable startup in the country, falling well short of the top dog.

Uber is currently the most valuable U.S. startup, by a long shot, with a valuation of $68 billion, more than double Airbnb. Lyft was valued at $15.1 billion as of June 2018 and has raised a total of $5.1 billion in funding life to date.

San Francisco Mobile App Development: Transforming Transportation

Uber and Lyft are leading the mobile transportation apps that have been a contributing factor to San Francisco’s mobile tech growth. These apps are consistently among the top 25 downloaded free apps on the App Store and in the Google Play Store. Ride service apps have completely changed the way people travel in urban areas and are inspiring other San Francisco mobile app development companies to build alternatives to owning a car.

These two apps, in particular, were some of the first on the market and continue to be reign over their competition due to name recognition, constantly evolving app design, and expanding service options.

Some less well-known transportation startups have major potential as well to disrupt the current kings. Getaround is one such app. The car-sharing company is taking the Uber mobile model and applying it to short-term car rentals. The peer-to-peer services make it easy for users to rent cars from other users in a safe and painless fashion, with Getaround providing insurance and streamlining payment. The app has launched in SF, Berkeley, Boston, and is coming soon to NYC and other US cities.


Building Productive SaaS Applications inSan Francisco

A great deal of productivity software these days is software as a service (Saas). These services and productivity tools ease the painfully slow processes of our workflow and allow companies to work more efficiently. Many of the world’s most used productivity apps have been created in the Bay Area.

Buffer is a social productivity tool that makes a world of difference for a multitude of companies from San Francisco to Shanghai. The SaaS app is the best way to schedule all your social media posts from one easy platform. Integration with all platforms, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and built-in analytics and video uploader make Buffer the end-all-be-all social tool.

Dropbox is a file-hosting service that offers cloud storage for businesses and individuals. As of 2018, Dropbox had over 500 million users worldwide. Dropbox also has one of the top rated and downloaded (and well designed) productivity apps on the App Store.
