What is mobile app development?
This is the process of creating applications for mobile devices on a software platform. Ideally, developers will deliver true, mobile apps that stand on their own – and are not just warmed-over Web pages. The most successful mobile applications make full use of mobile device features, such as integrating the microphone, camera, or GPS.
Mobile app development presents specific challenges: not just different operating systems and devices, but also display sizes and on-device features. End users today expect elegant and easy-to-use mobile apps. Otherwise, the app will be deleted. This often means that mobile apps need to be updated every 2-4 weeks, versus annually for many traditional desktop apps. Getting a new app to run flawlessly on all devices within that schedule requires a powerful platform.
