Bangalore: When mobile phones were first launched, who knew that they would one day be a part and parcel of our lives? Gone are those days when the usage of mobile phones was limited only to making and receiving calls. Hardly anyone knew the possibility of sending and receiving messages too. Recently, there has been a great change entering the mobile arena.



The ever increasing demand for smartphone has opened many avenues in the field of mobile development. These days’ smartphones come with varied operating systems which facilitates many exciting features. One of them are the Mobile Applications which have changed the way people live, converse, search information, social networking and even listen to their favorite radio station. The stiff competition among mobile phone companies has lead to the availability of smartphones with different types of applications.



Varied Platform for Mobile App Development



There are many platforms such as the Blackberry from RIM, the iOS from Apple, Android from Google and various others available in the market today. However, the number of mobile platforms has made app development a difficult task.



Most of the applications that we have today are not compatible with all the platforms. Applications that were developed for the Android platform will not work on the iOS platform. An app developer should choose the right platform where he/she will not only make millions but also deliver the best app.



Varied Categories of Apps



We now have apps from various horizons and comprises of utility apps, internet apps, business apps and social networking. They are based on the requirements of the end user.



Mobile app development is not only about designing and developing an app. It also involves ensuring that the app is secured. We are so absorbed with the functionality of the app and most of the time we forget to check if the app can resist threats.
