This global change also stands out in Turkey.  Recently, the major players of different industries in Turkey have integrated other industries in their applications and are moving into Super Apps.

Applications fulfilling all the needs

Today, we spend approximately 3 hours a day on applications on our smart phones.  Time spent has increased by approximately 25% as a result of social distancing and the restrictions that have become part of our lives due to the pandemic.  We use various applications on our mobile phones, such as those for mobile banking, digital wallets, e-commerce and public transportation.  So, what would it be like if we could make all these transactions through one single application? 

Super Apps provide integration of several transactions, including payment and ID management, using a single application.  More importantly, Super Apps can customise these services based on our needs.
