Modern mobile devices have more resources in terms of memory, CPU, and storage than some of the early super computers did. This power can be harnessed in multiple ways, and today many application developers are looking for ways to take advantage of this mobile power either from a web application running on the mobile platform or through running a native mobile application.
With the release of the iPhone in mid-2007, people’s perceptions of how mobile applications should behave and interact with the user were drastically changed. As a mobile application developer, you were no longer limited to a tiny browser window that could not properly display advanced HTML and style sheet markup. Now, Android Development is contending with iPhone application development due to the popularity of the Android open-source platform allowing all wireless device manufacturers to use Google’s software.
Companies now turn to development companies to develop mobile applications that help increase companies productivity through customer relationship management (CRM) and supply chain management.
Today, many cell phone and tablet manufacturers are following Apple’s lead, with Google creating a consortium to support Android app development, and recently Microsoft’s Windows 7 Phone platform adding onto the mobile device market. The end result is that consumers will benefit from this competition and be able to enjoy powerful, rich applications that can finally take advantage of the resources on their mobile devices.
