Apps are everywhere. In less than two years, the app craze has taken over. These small applications “ or apps “ that fit on our mobile phone do everything from helping us accomplish mundane tasks to keeping us entertained while we wait for the bus.

CNBC is airing a program this week that will take a look at mobile apps and how they are changing the way we work and live.  It ‘s called ‘Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution ‘ and is due to air on Thursday night at 10PM Pacific / 1:00AM Eastern.

Here ‘s a little more detail from the CNBC site:

Apps are popular and profitable. Studies estimate, the Apple iPhone apps store alone generates about $200 million a month in sales. Innovative and often addictive apps are changing the way we work and live.

Welcome to Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution. In this hour we ‘ll look at how apps have changed our lives, meet some of the creators behind them, and figure out just how big a business they really are.

CNBC ‘s Planet of the Apps: A Hand-held Revolution takes a look at how the industry is changing the way we live.

I ‘ll definitely be tuning in for this one.  I ‘m very keen to see how well they ‘ll cover the various mobile platforms and the subject in general, and which individual apps / developers they may spotlight.
