THE TECH SAVYS PODCAST delves into the question of how smartphone apps have become more integrated into our daily lives and explores the history of smartphone apps.


THE TECH SAVYS PODCAST relates to IST 110 because apps connect all three topics of the class: handling information, helping us communicate with other people, and implementing technologies like APIs.

THE TECH SAVYS PODCAST discusses an important topic because tens of millions of adults walk around daily with a smartphone full of apps. The history of smartphone apps is important because over the last 5 years, the number of apps on the Apple App Store has nearly quintupled! Our peers at Penn State relate to this topic because they fit the demographic of smartphone users.
