As the name of the app, an on-demand service app appears when end users have a new demand and the service provider can solve this at the same time. There are some popular demands as an online marketplace, transportation, food/grocery delivery, healthcare…
For instance, Uber– a very popular mobile app for calling a taxi online is one of the on-demand apps in the transportation group. When this application appeared, it solved the problems of quickly calling the taxi, check the cost, check the driver’s information, booking a taxi without using cash.
