Mobile is the Way to Go for the Modern World

mobileSometimes, you just don’t want to go out—and that’s OK. We’re more connected to our friends, our jobs, and the world around us. As a result, time is a more precious commodity than ever. So why would you limit yourself to having to drive to a specific place at a specific time to do what you want when you could enjoy it from the comfort of your couch or favorite coffee shop?

Netbooks, tablets, and smart phones have taken over the world and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, they’re only getting better and offering users more options to enjoy what they love. Having to stay at the house or the bar to watch the match or game with your friends is a thing of the past.

Whether it’s catching the new Game of Thrones, watching your favorite team, or playing your favorite game with friends from around the world, all of this can now be accessed on the go from the palm of your hand. And if you can’t get hold of your favorite channel, show, or social pastime on your tablet yet, you will soon.

The new HBO Now streaming service lets viewers cut the cord with cable and get all their favorite shows when and where they want. And it all happens without requiring 100 channels you don’t even watch on your TV at home. It includes new comedies like Silicon Valley, suspenseful documentaries like The Jinx, and of course the worldwide phenomenon of Game of Thrones (Team Arya all the way.) If all you want is to catch the new True Detective, why do you still need to pay for the Oprah Channel?

ESPN seems like it will soon be following suit much to the chagrin of cable providers, as reported by Washington Post. No longer will fans be required to sit at home or pack into a loud and cramped sports bar to cheer for their favorite team. They’ll be able to support their squad on the bus, in the waiting room, or the bathroom of their wife’s parents’ house (if one is so inclined).

The same goes for gaming. The arcade has long been dead, but with the advances in technology and social interaction, the gaming hall seems to be going the way of the dinosaur as well. More and more fans find themselves skipping the cramped confines of the bingo hall, for example, to play with friends online, where they can do so at their own comfort and leisure in the environment of their choosing.

And not only is it easier to join the game when and where you want, you can be rewarded for it, too.

Mobile functionality now allows companies to reward its customers for enjoying the links they love at their own convenience. Just look at the perks available through games like Clash of Clans or Candy Crush Saga. One specific online company taking advantage of this win-win situation is Betfair, where numerous benefits exists for all tiers of players. New users may receive a specific sign-up bonus (depending on when they join the platform) while long-time players have the option to receive loyalty rewards.

Whether it’s through a mobile app or online, companies are now able to connect with the consumer on a more personal and convenient level and provide promotions and incentives unavailable through the traditional brick-and-mortar environment.

And you know you’re going to also need a snack when enjoying all these forms of entertainment. So why spend the gas and the time to drive 10 minutes to get tacos, wait half an hour for food, then drive another 15 minutes to the rec hall to enjoy your game (which you’ll be late for) then have to drive home or get an Uber? Thanks to the mobile options available, you could be doing all of these things literally anywhere else, probably somewhere you actually want to be and order your food through the Taco Bell app and get some free grub for your trouble. Even McDonald’s is getting in on the game by rewarding its customers for doing nothing but taking advantage of a better option.

The mobile future is now and the future wants to hook you up for making your own life easier. Why fight the future?
