Sharing Mobile App Development Knowledge and Awareness With You

by Karl P. Mobile App Developer

Mobile app development can be described as the process of making handheld portable devices as useful as computers are. The foundation for this development is to boost the internet experience for the mobile user who lacks a computer. Nowadays the demand for handheld internet devices is growing fast across the world. Users can now log onto their portable devices and perform the tasks they normally do via their desktop or laptop PCs thanks to the bubbly mobile evolution. Information technology trends are clever these days. A few years back cellular phones, better known as cell phones, were merely used for communication. They were tremendous substitutes for landline telephones.


Today mobile phones appear to be the centre of everything. The fact that individuals and businesses cannot do without them makes mobile app development a practical IT (Information Technology) discovery. It appears that the smartphone is particularly getting all the attention that the computer once got. Desktop computers are heavy and impractical choices for mobile workers. Laptops and notebooks are portable but bulkier than any existing cell phone. It is no wonder that the mobile web audience is growing fast and now there is a generation that wants to do everything on a mobile development platforms.


What does this mean for mobile app development companies? It means their developers are embracing the new culture and developing websites with it in mind. Their main focus is on the user experience when designing mobile applications. They want to create apps that shorten user navigations when they want to find something different or something they did during their last surfing session. While it may be easy to create an application, constructing a good user experience is not straightforward. Upcoming mobile apps programmers have to know how to confront the screen size constraint they are not accustomed to when developing desktop apps. Besides having smaller screens, cell phones and other portable internet access gadgets have smaller keyboards and touch screens.


One may wonder how developers deal with bandwidth and memory constraints. It is not a secret that various handheld portable devices lack abundant memory compared to computers. To avoid running out of memory, developers avoid loading full-resolution images onto the cell phone. Instead they load smaller-resolution icons. In addition to bandwidth and memory, these experts have to create their apps within other parameters such as the low battery life. Moreover, they have to decide if they want to offer a location based (native) or a web-based mobile application development services. Many users may be more interested in location-based apps that are downloaded onto their devices rather than web-based apps that operate via something like the mobile OS WebKit system.


The latter is often cheaper and less complicated than the former. How to synchronize and cache data on the handheld device is another challenge faced by mobile coders. Experienced developers synchronize and cache data from the server side rather than the mobile side to avoid corrupting it. Furthermore they strive to keep the inexperienced user in mind when designing and loading new features onto the smartphones. These gadgets are smaller than the computers the users are familiar with. They also have touch screens. So there is likelihood that some first time users will make input errors. A reputable and reliable mobile app development team creates a flexible and tolerant platform.
