Today marks the Fourth of July, a national day in the USA that commemorates independence from the Brits and the powerful country that it became. But who made this country so great? It was the men and women of great ideas that fostered a land of prosperity and freedom where you could be your own boss and make something of yourself as the American Dream prophesizes. Lewis and Clarke, Al Capone, Muhammad Ali and the Wright brothers come to mind and this makes me wonder: what type of apps would these people have used, had the smartphone had existed? Though it may seem a tad silly to even ask this question, we have come a long way in making our simple, every day life events easier thanks to smartphones. These historic figures needed to do it all the old fashioned way.
