Gone are the days when a mobile was considered to be a luxury. Like
the refrigerator, the mobile has now become a necessity. As technology
evolved the features of the mobile phone started improving.
There are some people who get confused between Mobile Web Development and Mobile Application Development. The accessibility of any web site on the internet through the mobile phone is because of Mobile Web Development. On the other hand the excellent features of the mobile to handle different aspects like video and voice recording, daily reminder, clock alarm pertain to Mobile Application Development. It is mainly because of the Mobile Application Development that the working of the mobile and the capacity of the mobile to handle various tasks has increased many times. The world of the Mobile Application Development started much earlier to Mobile Web Development. The Mobile Application Development may not need any internet connection but the Mobile Web Development is totally dependent on the internet.
Earlier the prime purpose served by the mobile phones was only telecommunication. People carrying the mobile phones could only talk with each other. Later, the mobile application of sending and receiving text messages which is also known as SMS was introduced. SMS is still one of the most popular mobile applications.
As technology evolved the mobile phone was designed to access the internet and then Mobile Web Development came into limelight. The mobile web development is now gaining so much popularity that there are many mobile phones in the market that allow the user to access the internet. Once the mobile phone user has accesses to the internet he/she can perform a number of tasks that are possible through the internet.
