Mobile Apps Development

Mobile application development

The development of mobile applications is the set of processes and procedures involved in writing software for small wireless computing devices, such as smart phones or tablets.

Analytics as a competitive advantage

In this handbook we detail the use cases of the analytical solutions and provide advice for companies that want to take advantage of the power of data analysis to transform their business.

The development of mobile applications is similar to the development of web applications, and has its roots in the development of more traditional software. A fundamental difference, however, is that mobile apps are often written specifically to take advantage of the unique features offered by a particular mobile device.

One way to ensure that applications show optimal performance on a given device is to develop the application (app) natively on that device. This means that, at a very low level, the code is written specifically for the processor of a particular device. When an app needs to run on several operating systems, however, there is little - if any - code that can be reused from the initial development. The application must be essentially rewritten for each specific device.

In the future, it is expected that most mobile application development efforts will focus on the creation of browser-based applications that are agnostic to the device. Browser-based applications are simply websites created for mobile browsers. These sites are built to load quickly through a cellular network and have easy to use navigation with your fingers.
