VTV.vn - Never before have mobile phone users had such an easy life.

Statistics show there are about 15 thousand applications that cater to all kinds of needs in Vietnam.

People can now do things like grocery shopping, organise their schedules, and hail cabs, all from their phones. Let's find out more in the following story.

Nine years ago, Apple launched the App Store in 2008 featuring 500 apps. Today, that number has risen to 2.1 million.

According to experts, the utility app trend will be increasingly effective for the development of artificial intelligence, which will free up time for humans to pursue creative and more interesting work.
