In the 1980s, tech’s glory alone wowed audiences. Digital realities were a new landscape, and they found acceptance because (being the emotional beings humans are) we were fascinated, pleased, and intrigued by the possibilities.

You have one unread message, your order is waiting for you at the point of issue, your tweet is liked by the person for whom you wrote it – all this good news is brought by push notifications.

First impression matters! Visitors reaching a website or an app judge whether they can trust the company behind it based on the initial appearance of the app/website.
Our brain is wired to make snap judgements. It takes only 1/10th of a second to form a first impression about a person, and apps and websites are no different.
