Application Development

Mobile application development is similar to web application development and has its roots in more traditional software development one critical difference however is that mobile applications are often written specifically to take advantage of the unique features a particular mobile device offers.

In the future, it’s expected that a majority of mobile application development efforts will focus on creating browser-based applications that are device-agnostie. Browser-based applications are simply websites that are built for mobile browsers. Such sites are built to load quickly over a cellular network and have finger-friendly navigation.

The simplest mobile apps take PC-based applications and port them to a mobile device. As mobile apps become more robust, this technique is somewhat lacking. A more sophisticated approach involves developing specifically for the mobile environment, taking advantage of both its limitations and advantages. For example, apps that use location-based features are inherently built from the ground up with an eye to mobile given that the user does not have the same concept of location on a PC.
