Back in the days of yore, when Ye Olde Worlde Widee Webe came out, there was very little interaction. You visited a web site, read everything that interested you, looked at the visit counter (because those were important back then) and then probably clicked a link on the page to go somewhere else. That was the extent of the interactivity of a web site.
But we’re in a different age now. Interactivity is assumed, especially in mobile apps. Apple will reject your app if does nothing more than act as a brochure or business card. One can’t blame them, really. It’s hard enough to make an app stand out amongst the three million other apps on the App Store; the last thing they want is that number increasing and the problem compounding because of a bunch of apps that don’t do anything.
As we always say, fundamentally your app should be about solving a problem. Simply showing off your company or product is a problem best solved elsewhere. Find a way to use the inherent interactive nature of a mobile app to solve a problem, and you’re golden!
