<ul><li><p>Mobile Apps Development Interfacing Platforms and Devices </p><p>Todays evolutionary world makes it vital for the enterprises to keep their environment in tune with the </p><p>changing technology landscape. With technology becoming more open from the interoperability </p><p>perspective, enterprises use technology as a critical business enabler. Mobile phones which were initially </p><p>developed for easy communication when on the move have today evolved into devices that offer </p><p>communications in various forms from text messaging, email, Internet access, and Blue-tooth </p><p>communications to business applications, gaming and photography and other general computing </p><p>capabilities. </p><p>With the development of smartphones the days of monolithic applications left behind. Technology has </p><p>surged ahead today with software applications as modular components. The spectrum of new devices </p><p>made available in the market paves way for customers to look forward to new applications that can be </p><p>loaded on these devices to meet their ever-changing demands. The new technology landscape being a </p><p>vibrant space full of opportunities, creating simple and effective applications while maintaining the need </p><p>for safe and secure data access, mobile apps development has now become a challenge for the mobile </p><p>application developer. </p><p>Wikipedia defines mobile application development as - the process by which application software is </p><p>developed for low-power handheld devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital </p><p>assistants or mobile phones". These applications which can either be pre-installed on phones during </p><p>manufacture or can be downloaded by customers from various mobile software distribution platforms, </p><p>or delivered as web applications to provide an "application-like" experience within a Web browser. </p><p> However, with the exponential growth of the mobile market, and the availability of next-generation </p><p>technology based platforms, the end-users today look for mobile applications with more processing </p><p>power, flexibility, reliability, security and ability to integrate with other applications. </p><p>The leading service providers and IT giants have developed software tools and process to help the </p><p>application development teams to develop cost-effective applications that can enhance e-commerce </p><p>solutions. However, being focused on mobile apps development, the developers with an in-depth </p><p>domain understanding work on areas such as Location-Based Services (LBS), Mobile Media Streaming, </p><p>social networking, messaging &amp; syncing, mobile ad engines, Mobile VoIP and Gaming. </p><p>The mobile applications developed by the leaders in the sector enhances the mobile ecosystem </p><p>functioning by effectively performing the tasks such as </p><p>;catid=8&amp;title=Mobile-App-Companies--Their-Trends</p></li><li><p> Developing mobile applications for various platforms along with quality analysis testing </p><p> Conceptualizing mobile applications and eliciting requirements of user interface design, </p><p>prototype etc. </p><p> Interfacing mobile applications between platforms and devices </p><p> Developing server-side and infrastructure, including for location &amp; mapping services </p><p> Integrating third-party components and carrier for SMS, MMS, billing systems </p><p> Coordinating with carriers and device manufacturers for testing and certification </p><p> Launching and distributing mobile applications </p><p> providing carrier catalogs </p><p>Besides these tasks, the mobile application development teams while working through with various layers </p><p>of the mobile device, either directly or in collaboration with third-party providers also ensure maintenance </p><p>and product support services leading to enhanced customer satisfaction. </p><p>Related Links: advisory services, product engineering </p><p></p></li></ul>
