Smart Mobile Application Development
Smart mobile application development is the complete process of creating software applications that run on a mobile device. A typical mobile application uses a network connection to work with remote computing resources. Therefore, the mobile development process involves:
- Creating installable software bundles (codes, binaries, assets, etc.).
- Implementing backend services such as accessing data with APIs.
- Testing applications at targeting devices.
Mobile applications and smart device platforms
There are two most powerful platforms in the modern smartphone market. One is Apple Inc.’s iOS platform. The iOS platform powers the famous line of Apple’s iPhone smartphones. The other is Google’s Android. The Android operating system is used by Google devices and many other OEMs to make their smartphones and other smart devices. Use
While building applications, however, there are some similarities between the two platforms while developing for iOS. Although Apple uses iOS exclusively for its own devices, Google makes Android available to other companies as long as they fulfill specific requirements, such as adding some Google applications to the devices they send. Do Developers can target both of these platforms to create apps for hundreds of millions of devices.
Alternatives to mobile apps
There are four major development approaches to building mobile applications.
- Native mobile applications
- Cross-platform native mobile applications
- Hybrid mobile applications
- Progressive web applications
Both of them have advantages and disadvantages for developing mobile applications. When choosing the right development approach for your projects, developers consider the required user experience, computing resources, and the app’s required local features, development budgets, time targets, and resources available to maintain the app.
