Achieving a given target is not so hard but achieving a moving target, definitely is. Establishing a market space in this tight technology is even harder. Since the market is so much moving towards the end user’s pick and simultaneously beating up with the competition amongst the similar or high end products, it has become next to impossible to create or come up with a hit product. The nature and the shape of the market are always morphing, as the number of people who own and use cell phones continues to grow tremendously.
Earlier, the technologists used to come up with a rudimentary idea they want to develop and then that was projected as a growing need for the end user, these have become the stories of the past.
Now, the users have become smart. Everyone wants to surround themselves by the latest technology. Everyone wants what others have or something better than that. However the focus of the developers has always had been the same, making the life of the user simpler. The gap between the developers and users has shrunken to minimal. The users want everything in their hands, from banking to shopping and from social networking to booking everything
that can be booked online.
This has obviously created a pressure on the future of the mobile development. The mobile developers has to look upon everything for instance, the dimension of the phone, placements of the keys, hardware to use, processing speed, memory, screen resolution, the battery, development cost and much more. The developers have to look upon the target audience before coming up with any innovative design, app or software. It is not just about manufacturing a handset; it’s about creating a part of one’s daily life.
Undoubtedly, the future of the mobile and the app development is very bright. But then the developers should have to have a step ahead in terms of technology. As the data and stats speak for the business, the mobile application industry will grow tremendously to match the demand and keep up with ever-evolving technologies.
We can see a growing trend in the movement from native apps to Web Apps. Where native apps are engineered according to the platform, the web apps are cross platform based. The web apps are written in web technologies like HTML5 and CSS3, hosted on a web server and then run across multiple platforms and devices.
The future is not only bright for consumers but also bright for those working in the technology and application development fields. Since the market
has not matured and we don’t have any major players or brands to run the mobile application market, so everyone who can create an app can
showcase him. Hence there are a lot of opportunities in the Mobile Application Development and it is to be considered one of the most promising careers in the market.
