With millions of apps available, you’d think all the cool app ideas had already been created. But the truth is there’s still plenty of room for innovators like you to make a difference with your own amazing app.
Once you’re certain you want to create an app, the next step is figuring out exactly what kind.
Decide your target audience, who you really want to help. Think about their needs and what problems of theirs you can solve. With a little brainstorming, you’ll no doubt have many great ideas.
Looking for some additional inspiration to get you started? Check out this list of cool app ideas and see what you other innovations you can come up with.
1. Instant Checkout
We’re all grateful for the self-checkout and the “15 items or less” lanes when we’re in a hurry at the grocery store. But an app that lets you checkout your items while you’re buying them would speed up the process a lot more.
You could scan your goods as you’re buying them and instantly pay for them through PayPal or whichever connected banking feature you have set up.
2. Real-time Translator
Turn your mobile phone into a miniature United Nations Assembly translator. Imagine how cool it would be to have a real-time conversation with someone in a different language.
There’s been great progress through features like Google Translate, but bridging the gap even further and allowing for instant communication would be revolutionary. You could travel even more confidently throughout the world, or even in your own neighborhood.
Connect with new friends, order different foods, and have exciting cultural experiences all with the help of your mobile phone.
3. Parking Finder
If you’ve ever driven in a frustrating circle trying to find a parking spot, you’ve already thought of this app. Wouldn’t it be amazing to know where spaces are in real time?
This app would alert the user of any available space, how much it cost, and any relevant traffic laws or restrictions. You’d save time and frustration (and gas).
It would also be great if this app were connected to a payment system so you could refill your meter if necessary from wherever you are.
4. Conscientious Consumer
Companies are increasingly taking political stands and aligning themselves with or against issues that you may care about. But with all the noise of an endless news cycle, it’s hard to know exactly what they value.
If you’re the kind of consumer who cares about a brand’s political affiliation or what causes they’ve donated money to, it’d be great to be able to access that information in one convenient place.
Let your purchasing power be your voice and add transparency to a clutter commercial space.
5. Social Network Optimizer
Do you struggle knowing how to make sure your content is optimized for a particular social media platform? What works for Facebook doesn’t necessarily work for LinkedIn.
An app that allowed you to enter seed content and make suggestions based on the platforms you want to share it on would help you get the most out of your posts and save time in the process. Hashtag and keyword assistance, picture tagging, and a scheduler for ideal post times based on the platform would be welcomed features.
