This creates an environment where the net result of innovation can be multiplied when compared to in-house R&D for such app created solutions. Just as Google has developed their own official suite of app’s within the Android market or Google Play store, this only represents a tiny fraction of the entire app universe that exists on a store like Google Play.
While financial services app stores from within trading platforms are nowhere near the scale of their smart-phone app constituents (when comparing a Google Play or iOS universe), the excitement is nonetheless building for this growing segment, and as a means to power platforms.
