But not only will you be making life easier for yourself, downloading these apps will also help support and empower workers during a time of economic instability. Now more than ever, we see the importance of essential workers that include delivery men, healthcare professionals, and various frontliners. The innovation of these apps is two-fold, one on an economic level and another on a social level, where all of us must try to make the best than we can of circumstances that surround this new and never-before-seen kind of normal.
