It's not that apps aren't still the major force in this generation of computing. It's just that there are a lot of bad apps glutting the market and making the whole ecosystem look tired … And making things like bots look interesting. The age of apps is far from over, the age of bad apps is.
This "glut" of bad apps is what makes something like Ulysses all the more extraordinary.
