Premiering Thursday, January 7th at 10pm ET, Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution will look at this worldwide phenomenon in mobile technology. These applications, or apps, that we download on our mobile phones, are taking over the world and our lives. This one hour television special on CNBC, reported on by Scott Wapner, looks at how the industry is changing the way we live.

Mobile apps have offered us a new way to accomplish tasks and be entertained anywhere we go. They are both very popular and profitable. The Apple iPhone store generates approximately $200 million a month in sales. CNBC’s Planet of the Apps will look at the history of the app movement, how apps have changed our lives, introduce us to some of the creators and explore how big a business they are.

Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution will include:

  • Actor Greg Grunberg, one of the stars of NBC’s Heroes, introducing a mobile coupon app that he created, Yowza!!
  • Apple started out with only 11 apps for its iPhone and now features over 100 thousand apps.
  • What is your favorite app? With apps for almost anything, many are now considered essential.
  • What is Apple’s competition?
  • Can individual developers create a profit?

I have personally seen how having a smartphone with apps can change your life, and would have trouble going back to life without them. It is like always having your laptop in your pocket wherever you go. When I go out I can read the news or a book, research anything, check the weather, play games, watch videos, find a restaurant, check on movies and theater times and so much more, all from one little gadget, my iPhone. It is revolutionary and I am looking forward to watching Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution on CNBC on January 7th, 2010.
