It’s been more than three decades when a mobile phone was introduced and ever since it has successfully managed to connect people all over the world. Mobile phone technologies have gone through many changes, and now we have smartphones. Today, in order to gain a place in the personal space of customers, entrepreneurs and stakeholders are shifting away from desktop perspective and are inclining towards mobile technology. Nowadays, for any marketing initiative, mobile technology is being given the top most priority by businesses all because people now are spending more time on their Smartphone than a desktop computer.
Those enterprises who have already managed to deliver unique and effective mobile application for their business are thriving with increased profitability. According to Google’s statistics, people’s interest in mobile app in UK alone has gone up 80 percent since 2010. As far as the rest of the world is concerned, the stats show 60 percent rise in mobile apps, and the forecast states that it will still grow to 80 percent in the next 12 months. This is only people’s mobile app interest statistics; however, according to the research undertook by ABI market intelligence company, there are over 29 billion mobile apps downloaded and used in 2011. The interesting fact here is that most of the mobile apps belong to Android and iOS; however, with the entry of the innovative Windows Phone 8 mobile platform, the usage is going to rise tremendously.
Considering the fact that smartphones are going to be the future technology market for businesses, mobile app developers all across the world have changed their attitude towards application development. The mobile app developers who thrived with their proficiency have now started to explore into the depths of the multiple mobile platform as well as cross-platform app development. Most of the software development companies that were focused on providing custom development solutions are now shifted towards mobile app development because of profitable aspects. In addition, these development companies can also cater for the needs of a mobile website that helps businesses achieve better prospects.
Mobile app developers always felt the need for right tools that would enable them to cater for specific mobile solutions on a discrete platform. However, this need is also sufficed by various mobile operating system developers, offering them different tools and SDK (Software Development Kit). In addition, some companies also released a mobile development framework such as PhoneGap, Appcelerator, Sencha, Mosync, etc. that enables mobile app developers to cater for cross-platform mobile solution
