    Hi! Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this.
    I think the excellent benefit of having a mobile app are promotions. When your customers download your app and you have told you developer about the discounts and promotions, your mobile customers will be able to see that in the app and be able to come to your establishment to redeem it.
    I think this is worth reading the post and it is very useful for everyone who wants to expand their business with the help of mobile application.
    Thanks for such a nice post
