Add MVM to your Mobile Home Screen

2 minute read

We’re all interested in reducing the time and effort to get to where we need to go in this day and age. Technology has enabled us to get to places, physically and virtually, in less time than ever before (barring any traffic, obviously). We see it everywhere, from quicker transportation to more powerful computers, and more prevalent than ever, with the introduction and usage of mobile applications (a.k.a. Apps).

Mobile phone usage has sky-rocketed in the last decade or so, since the dawn of the smartphone and has only grown stronger and stronger as the years pass by. Our data suggests that almost 70% of users are accessing Malta Virtual Mall (MVM) via their mobile device. We are not alone, with the National Statistics Office reporting in their news release titled “Internet Usage by Households: 2019” that in 2019 “83.3 per cent of those between 16 and 74 accessed the internet away from home or work via their mobile or smartphone“. These are huge numbers, which is why it is important that online shops and businesses in general embrace mobile technology and applications.

We are currently looking into doing just that. Our aim is to bring MVM to your mobile phone via an app for easy access to all the awesome features we’ve developed and are continuing to develop.

Until then, however, we’ve created some walkthrough videos so that you are able to add MVM to the Home screen of your Android or iOS devices.
