There Really Might Not Be An App For That

Not every problem requires an app.
Not every solution is in a website.
In the new tech age where businesses rifle of the latest solutions to seemingly impossible problems and become overnight successes, think Instagram, UBER,watsi.org and others. It is easy to believe that almost every problem has an app solution waiting to be discovered.
But sometimes that is not the case. Sometimes what a problem needs is for us to go down to the community, to interact with the community to find “solutions.”
Not a singular uniform “solution” that works with the push of a button and fixes everything. But solutions that require community presence to solve them.
So the next time you encounter a problem, don’t think about creating an app first. Rather think about an app-less solution, because not every problem can be solved with an app.
