CITY VIEWS: WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO PAY FOR SMARTPHONE APPS?

ALAN NELSON | THREADNEEDLE
“At the moment, I have a Blackberry provided by my company, which doesn’t have any apps on it. All I have on it at the moment is a few games. I’m going to wait until my contract is reviewed in January and then see if I get an iPad.”

NICK BOOT | VIELIFE HEALTHCARE
“Yes, I have bought applications before. I’ve got a lot, a whole range, and they are mainly ones that help me to do my job better. I’ve got ones like Sales Force and a programme that allows me to do conversions quickly.”

NIGEL HOLLAND | ARTHUR J GALLAGHERS
“I have bought some apps in the past, so I suppose so, yes. It’s just like everything else really: if you want something a lot, you’ll pay for. And if you don’t, then you won’t.”
