Thoughts on the “democratization of apps” and the future of mobile apps
by Roy Smith, VP Marketing, appMobi
This month the iPhone juggernaut celebrated its fifth birthday and there seems to be no sign of a slowdown to smartphones overtaking the mobile market. Birthdays and anniversaries are always a good time to reflect on the past and the future so let’s take stock of the present and future of mobile apps.
Writing cross platform mobile application
Writing mobile applications for multiple platforms is a real issue in these days of massive fragmentation. Suppose you have been asked to create a mobile application that customers could discover in an application store such as the Android Market or the Apple iOS App store, but also reach through the mobile Web. That sounds like several jobs at first. Perhaps you might think that this project will require at least one team for each native application platform, and then another one for the mobile website. Thanks to hybrid mobile applications, that may no longer be the case.
The Future of Mobile Applications
HTML5 is rapidly becoming the predominant mobile application development technology. It solves the problems of market fragmentation that are a hallmark of the mobile marketplace’s early stages of development. In the future, HTML5 calls will be available to websites to allow them to act as native applications themselves and install from Web-based application stores. Ultimately, there is a very good chance that the mobile applications of the future will be written purely using Web technology.
