)-- Apps are quickly transforming the digital world. To better inform e-commerce publishers and entrepreneurs, the fulfillment company Karol Media engaged app developer, Michael O’Boyle of O’Boyle + Associates, with an e-news blog interview that reveals an inside look into the making of an app.

Karol provides storage, packaging, distribution fulfillment business solutions to e-commerce, other business, non-profits, and associations for over 36 years.
Excerpted from the Making of an App story:
O’Boyle: “The challenge with Big Data technologies like this is distilling the dizzying amount of data into snack sized, actionable, information. This is my favorite kind of problem to solve. ‘Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.’ I think the saying fits --- but the breadth and depth of Big Data precludes learning all the necessary fishing skills.
“I say ‘Teach an app to fish’ and let the ‘man’ focus on eating and other things computers can't do. The apps that interest me most right now are those doing their best to disappear, or at least shrink to a size appropriate to their function. The best design, like Carson the butler, is humble enough to know when to speak up and when to dissolve into the wallpaper. GPS and other sensors are helping apps that find the right moments to interject.”
