The Competitive Mobile Application Development Industry
Mobile Application Developers are starting to become one of the most in-demand individuals in the high-tech market as many corporations/companies/individuals are all rushing to develop the next great mobile application or mobile app which will assist in their business. The smartphone application developers are getting flooded with requests to develop mobile applications that they often have to turn down the mobile application development request because they do not have the resources to support the demand for all the mobile applications which companies and individuals are requesting. While this can be considered a good thing for the mobile application industry, it is also putting a lot of pressure on developers wether they are iPhone application developer or Android application developer to continue to roll out quality mobile applications at a quick rate in order to tailor to the other incoming mobile application requests which are coming in.
One concern which many mobile app developers have is that if they turn down a mobile application development request, then the client will go to another mobile application development firm and the first firm which the client initially went to will lose business because they did not have the resources or support system required to take on the mobile app development request. For that reason, many mobile application development firms are doing everything they can to hire quality mobile application developers onto their team and individual mobile application developers are doing their best to complete mobile application development projects without any delays so they can move onto the next mobile application request which is in line. Although this puts a lot of pressure on mobile application developer and mobile application development firms, it is a good type of pressure because the incoming requests/demand for mobile application development means that the mobile application industry is thriving and the mobile application developers or employees that work at mobile application development firms have stable jobs which will pay good and there will be less concern about losing their job because there is not enough work.
After recently talking to a mobile application developer, he stated the following: “Our company is constantly interviewing and hiring new mobile application developers and then assigning teams of mobile application developers to take on projects. It is a fun environment to work in because there are so many different mobile application developers which the company hires so we all are learning from each other in this growing mobile app industry. Yes, I will admit that there are times when our mobile app development team feels pressure to complete a mobile application by the deadline but we all truly enjoy our jobs and feel very secure in the mobile application industry so we learn to take the pressure and focus it in a positive way rather than in a negative light. Whenever I see the company hire more mobile application developers and not let go of our current mobile app developers, it makes me feel confident that I am in a growing mobile application development company and we have a bright future ahead of ourselves”
The future is certainly bright for the mobile application development industry, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms but at the same time, mobile app developers and mobile application development firms must remember not to get lazy or fall behind in this competitive mobile application development industry or they can easily lose ground to another mobile application development company who has more resources or more ability to develop quality mobile applications. The mobile application industry is considered a very cut-throat industry and mobile application developer and mobile application development firms must do everything in their power to ensure they remain on top of their competition in order to survive in the mobile application industry.nsert this block of code into your page
Facebook to Introduce New Mobile Application Store
Many mobile application development firms will be excited to hear the news that Facebook will be offering a similar type of mobile application store where users can download and use mobile applications just like they would at other popular mobile application marketplaces such as Apple’s iTunes mobile app marketplace or Google’s Android mobile app marketplace. Facebook recently announced that they will be rolling out an mobile app store where any mobile application developers can grow their mobile applications and users can learn about them. One mobile application expert recently said that the new Facebook mobile app store will be a great new avenue for experienced and new mobile application developers to learn how to develop and grow mobile applications and also an open marketplace for the mobile application developers or mobile application development firms to post them for other users to download.
Facebook have over 900 million users so the benefits and avenue which the new Facebook mobile application store will to mobile application developers and mobile application development firms will be at new levels. Even though mobile application marketplaces such as Apple’s iTunes mobile application marketplace or Google’s Android mobile application marketplace have a large number of users, they are not even close to the 900 million users which are on Facebook. For mobile application developers and mobile application development firms to have the opportunity to post a mobile app on a marketplace where 900 million users can potentially view and download, it simply amazing.
One mobile application developer which we recently interviewed stated the following about the new Facebook mobile application marketplace: “When I heard about the news that Facebook will be introducing a new mobile application marketplace, it was so excited and intrigued about what the future will hold for the mobile app industry and mobile application development. We have already been growing and picking up pace at an all time high but when we combine mobile applications with a powerhouse social media giant like Facebook, the effects it will have for both social media and mobile applications will be endless. Facebook is giving mobile app developers and mobile app development firms an arena where they can post mobile applications and learn how to grow upon the mobile applications to make them better, tie that in with social media and the ability for users to give feedback and this is a win-win situation for the entire mobile application development industry, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms”
Although it is impossible to predict how successful the mobile application marketplace will be, if the past few years is any indication, then it is safe to assume that it will be a large hit for mobile application user a, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms. The ability for mobile applications to reach 900 million users from around the world is something which has never been done before and mobile application developers, mobile application development firms and the entire mobile application industry should be very thankful that Facebook has decided to roll out a mobile application marketplace for all types of mobile application developers and mobile application development firms.
Mobile Applications for Ticket Exchange
During a recent Sports Conference held in California, one topic which came up was mobile applications and mobile ticketing applications for sporting events rather than the old fashion paper tickets which are printed out. The topic was very interesting to a lot of individuals in the conference and a lot of them seemed to agree that mobile ticketing applications is the way the future is heading and there will soon be a time where all ticketing will be via mobile Smartphone’s rather than printed paper tickets. The benefits of developing mobile app which can be used to represent an actual ticket to a sporting event has many benefits and since the rate of Smartphone users are increasing at an all time rate, this idea may soon become a reality sooner than later. Many mobile application developers have been aware of mobile ticketing in mobile applications for awhile now but not until recently have they started really studying this new concept and the most effective way to develop a mobile application to perform various functionalities needed with mobile ticketing.
A few benefits which mobile application developments firms believe that mobile ticketing applications will have compared to paper-printed tickets is that mobile ticketing applications will save a lot of paper and ink which is currently being used to print tickets to sporting events; the ability to have all the information stored on a mobile device via a mobile application is much more convenient than carrying around a piece of paper which can easily get lost or get ruined if water touches the ticket and causes ink damage. Most people are very responsible with the mobile device so it is safe to assume that if the ticket to a sporting event is on a mobile device, then the chances of it getting lost are less than if it was a paper ticket. Another benefit of having a mobile application which can store tickets is that a user can easily sell/exchange/transfer the ticket from himself/herself to another individual in a very easy manner. With paper tickets, if someone wants to sell/exchange/transfer his/her ticket to someone else, then most likely they need to meet up with that person and then make the exchange/transfer/sale happen. But if users were to use mobile applications for ticket exchanges/sales/transfers, then a user simply needs to click a button and the ticket will get transferred/exchanged/sold to another individual anywhere in the world he/she may be and there will be no hassle needed to meet up with the individual. Wireless ticket exchange is expected to be a major concept in the future and mobile applications will certainly be in the forefront of this new concept.
Mobile application developers can also consider adding extra features to mobile applications which support mobile ticketing such as the ability for the user to view a seating chart of the arena/stadium he or she is currently at, find assistance in finding their seat which the ticket is correlated to, find the nearest bathroom, food stand related to where their seat location is and so forth. The possibilities are endless for mobile application developers and mobile app development firms if they decide to expand and create a mobile application which is not only a mobile ticketing applications but a completely Sports Experience mobile application which also supports tickets. Some mobile application developers, mobile application “experts” and mobile application development firms are predicting that wireless ticketing integrated with mobile apps will really start taking off by the year 2014 but only time will tell.
Mobile Applications have become such an important part of the lives of many individuals in the United States and the demand and popularity of mobile applications will continue to grow going into the future. Mobile Applications have expanded to the point where they are being used by all different industries and all different types of peoples from all around the world are able to benefit and live a better lifestyle due to mobile applications. Mobile Ticketing and mobile applications which can support ticket exchange is yet another example of the impact which mobile applications and mobile application developers are having on different industries; and although it is premature to say that mobile ticketing applications will be a success in the future; if the past is an indication, then mobile applications which support tickets and ticket exchange will be a great success.
Mobiles Applications & 3-D Technology
With new technology continuously being introduced the marketplace, mobile app development firms need to consistently stay on top of the new technological developments that are happening to ensure they do not fall behind in the competitive mobile app development industry. One specific technology which has been catching the attention of many mobile application developers recently has been the innovation of 3-D graphics, specifically 3-D on television screens and mobile Smartphones. 3-D has become popular in the past 3 years with the introduction of 3-D movies in the movie theaters and now it has caught on to where television sets and even some mobile Smartphones for iPhone and android, are able to support the 3-D technology. With this new crazy for 3-D, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms need to ensure they are educated enough to be able to start the development of mobile applications in 3-D when the time comes.
Some mobile application development firms have already developed mobile applications which can support/run on 3-D but it has not caught on popularity (and many Smartphones are unable to support it) to the point where many application developers are developing a lot of mobile applications which are in 3-D. One category in the mobile application world which will benefit greatly from 3-D technology will be mobile gaming applications. Mobile gaming applications usually use a lot of graphics and visual images to enhance the game-play and experience so by implementing 3-D technology to the mobile gaming application, it will take the user experience the a new level. Users will then be able to experience playing a mobile gaming application where he/she is in a race car and is competing against other drivers in a 3-D track; or a user will play a fighting mobile application game where the sword/weapons actually seem as though they are reaching out and attacking you when specific buttons are pushed. Mobile Applications will truly be taken to another level once mobile application developers, mobile app experts and mobile application development firms can master the concept of 3-D technology in mobile applications.
Many developers are starting to experiment with 3-D technology in “mock mobile applications” which they create until they can fully master the technology. One concern which many mobile application developers have is that they do not want to be put in a situation where a client/company will come to them requesting to develop a ground breaking mobile application but they (the mobile application developers or mobile application development firm) do not have the experience or resources to take on such a project. For that reason, mobile application developers and mobile app development firms are always ensuring they are 5 steps ahead of the game so if a request for a groundbreaking mobile application comes along, the mobile app developers or mobile app development firm will be fully prepared to take on the mobile application development project and have the opportunity to potentially develop a groundbreaking mobile application which the world has not seen yet.
As technology and new innovations continue to be released into the marketplace, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms need to constantly be aware and educated on the new developments to ensure that they do not fall behind in the competitive market of mobile application development. The mobile app development industry is growing at an amazing pace and the competition between mobile application developers/mobile app development firms is very fierce; any advantage a mobile app developers can have over another mobile apps developers or mobile apps development firm will be beneficial in closing deals and increasing their chances of surviving in the mobile application industry. Although it is impossible to predict what the future will hold, if things continue to go the way they have been for the mobile application industry, then mobile app developers and mobile application development firms certainly have a bright future ahead for themselves.
Mobile Application Developers Getting Overloaded with Work
With the increasing popularity and demand for mobile applications, one “issue” which has been coming up for mobile application developers and mobile application development firms is that they have so many projects they are working on and so many mobile app project in-coming requests that all of the resources are starting to become fully tied up that mobile application development firms or mobile app developers have to actually turn down some projects because they do not have the bandwidth to support all of the incoming mobile app development project for android, apple or others, requests from various individuals or companies. Many mobile application development “experts” predicted that this would happen to the mobile app development industry because of the fact that the mobile application industry is fairly new and there is yet to be an influx of mobile application developers around; in fact, it is very hard to find a quality mobile application developer or mobile application development firm.
Even though it is a good thing that the high demand for mobile applications and mobile app development from developers or mobile application development firms are keeping resources busy and incoming profits for these developers/companies at a high, it also brings on stress and work overload which can often make mobile app developers feel tired from working around the clock with any break to meet all the deadlines for the mobile app development projects for iPhone and other platforms.
Even though one easy solution is to just hire more mobile application developers (or other resources) to assist on the mobile application development, since there are not a lot of quality mobile application developers around, there is no choice but to keep the quality mobile app developers around and not hire other “mobile app developers” who think they know how to do mobile application development when they may not. One mobile application developer recently stated that: “I am constantly working on mobile application projects to meet the deadlines the clients have set forth. Yes, it is very stressful but at the same time, I know the mobile application industry is in high demand and is growing at a very alarming rate so I feel fortunate to be working in mobile application development and being one of the first few to develop mobile applications. With every mobile application development project I do, I am learning more and more about the mobile application development industry and it makes me more assured I made the right decision to becoming a mobile application developer”
For the meantime, it seems that all mobile application developers and mobile application development firms will be tied up constantly with mobile application development projects but at the same time, they should all be very happy to be in a thriving industry which has not been effected by the recession in anyway. While a lot of other industries have been suffering and jobs have be cut short, the mobile application industry (specifically the mobile application development industry) has be growing every week and the demand for mobile application developer are growing more and more. The mobile application development industry has a bright future ahead of itself and anyone who is willing to put in hard work and understand they may be overloaded with work but at the same time, be in one of the most growing industries, then the mobile application development industry might be the one for them to join. No one knows can predict the future but all inductions point to the mobile application industry to continue thriving for years to come.
Mobile Application Developers Optimistic and Excited for Blackberry 10 Platform
Although not a lot is yet known about the newly introduced Blackberry 10 Platform, many mobile application developers and mobile application development firms are raving about the new platform and are very excited to start mobile application development for Blackberry 10. In the past few years, many mobile application developers, mobile application development firms and mobile app “experts” have claimed that Blackberry has dropped a lot and taken a back seat to the iPhone and Android platform development and even though all statistics show that to be true, Blackberry still has a strong presence outside of the United States (specifically countries like India) and the demand for Blackberry platforms is not as extinct as it may seem to be in the United States.
Many mobile application developers, mobile app development firms and mobile app “Experts” believe that the new Blackberry 10 platform is exactly what Blackberry needs to stay afloat in the competitive mobile application industry and still remain as a valid contender in the United States. Fortunately for Blackberry, there new Blackberry 10 platform has generated enough buzz to get mobile application developers and mobile app development firms excited about developing mobile applications for the Blackberry Platform and tapping into another segment of the mobile application industry which many mobile app “Experts” believe has been neglected in the past few years – the Blackberry App Store. While Apple and Android have been picking up momentum with the introduction of their new Smartphones and growing mobile application marketplaces, Blackberry has slowly seen a decline in popularity/demand for their mobile app marketplace but the Blackberry 10 platform maybe just what is needed to re-energize the once popular mobile application marketplace.
One mobile application developer which we recently interviewed stated the following with regards to the new Blackberry 10 platform: “In my opinion, the release of the new Blackberry 10 platform is a do or die for Blackberry; if they succeed and many people hop aboard the Blackberry bandwagon again then they still have a chance for success but if they fail and people do not adopt to the new Blackberry platform then it is safe to say that RIM and Blackberry is in major trouble and the chances for them to remain competitive remain very low. Mobile Applications are what will drive Blackberry and the need to establish a solid mobile application marketplace should be the first priority for Blackberry”. While other mobile app developers, mobile application development firms and mobile app “Experts” do not believe that it is do-or-die for Blackberry, they all do agree that Blackberry needs to something fast in order to remain competitive in the cut-throat mobile application and Smartphone industry.
While it is no surprise how quickly Apple and Google were able to capture the Smartphone/Mobile Application development market share in such a fast time, what was surprising is how quickly Blackberry fell behind and did very little to remain competitive until the release of their new Blackberry 10 Platform; hopefully for Blackberry it is not too late for them and they will still be able to remain competitive and have a chance to succeed against the two top superpowers in the Smartphone Application Industry: Google and Apple. As always, only time will tell but Blackberry certainly has something to be optimistic about going into the future.
Will New iPhone have an Impact on the Mobile Application Industry?
With the rumors of a new iPhone 5 to be introduced later this year, many smartphone application development firms, business phone application developers and mobile application forums have been buzzing about what new feature the new iPhone will have and what type of impact it will have with mobile applications and Apple’s’ iTunes Mobile Application Marketplace. While most mobile application developers do not believe a major change in mobile application development will occur with the new iPhone, there are some mobile application developer and mobile application development firms that believe that minor improvements in the new iPhone will have an impact on how mobile applications are developed and used. Apple has been pretty strict on keeping information about the new iPhone confidential so right now all mobile application developers, mobile application development firms and individuals who write on mobile app development firms can do is speculate on what changes/improvements there will be with the new iPhone and how it will impact mobile applications.
One change which some developers believe will happen is the possibility that the new iPhone will have a larger screen which will allow it to have better resolution on the screen. The change in more precise crispy resolution will mean that mobile application developers and mobile app development firms will need to develop their mobile applications to support the higher resolution screen in order to take full advantage of the features which the iPhone will offer. While resolution change is not considered a major mobile application development overhaul, it still takes time and something which mobile application developers need to consider not only for pre-existing mobile applications but also for new mobile applications which they will be releasing into the mobile app marketplace. One other possibility (although many mobile application developers and mobile application development firms believe it is a slim one) is that the new iPhone will be able to support 3-D images on its screen. Having the ability to have 3-D images shown on the iPhone screen will be a huge step for Smartphone technology but even a larger step for mobile application development as mobile app developers and mobile application development firms will have to completely learn a new technology and develop mobile applications to support 3-D imaging on Smartphones.
An obvious change which all mobile application developers and mobile app development firms we spoke to agreed upon is that the release of the new iPhone will lead to the increase of more mobile applications into various mobile application marketplaces. Whenever there has been a release of a new iPhone, Apple has seen an increase in sales and number of iPhone sold and many mobile application developers, mobile application “experts” believe that the release of the new iPhone will once again top the sales of previous iPhone models which will in turn lead to a higher demand for mobile applications and mobile application development. One mobile application developer who was recently interviewed stated the following with regards to the increase of demand for mobile applications with the release of the new iPhone: “I firmly believe that when the new iPhone is release later this year, Apple mobile application industry will experience a fresh new large wave of demand and popularity for mobile applications, specifically mobile gaming applications and the number of mobile application downloads will increase to a number never before seen in the mobile application industry. As scary as it may seem, the mobile app industry and mobile app development is still in its early stages of growth and it will continue to grow for at least the next ten years until a new groundbreaking technology or device (such as the Smartphone) is introduced into the market where the average individual can purchase the device and use it”
With each new technology or Smartphone that is released, it is safe to assume that it will continue to build upon the already stable and growing mobile application marketplace and the momentum will continue to pick up at a new level never experienced before. Even though it is impossible to predict the future, evidence from the past few years are showing that the mobile application development ball is rolling and picking up momentum with each passing day and each new Smartphone that enters the marketplace. Mobile Application developer and mobile app development firms certainly have a bright future ahead of themselves but at the same time, they need to remain onto of the new technology/features that are being released in Smartphones to ensure that they do not fall behind and lose business with other mobile application developers/mobile application development firms who will surely fight to beat out their competition in this aggressive mobile application industry.

Shortage of Quality Mobile Application Developers
The mobile application industry is getting so large that many mobile application development firms are now actively seeking to hire new mobile application developers to assist with their mobile application development and various other mobile/tablet development projects that they are getting requests for. While this is certainly a good thing for mobile application development firms, mobile application developers and the mobile application industry; it is also bringing a lot of stress to these mobile application development firms because they are unsure if they can find quality/experienced mobile application developers who they can hire to work on mobile app projects for their clients.
One major issue which hiring new mobile application developers is their experience level. Since the mobile application industry is still a fairly young industry, there are not a lot of experienced mobile application developers that can be found and hired as easily as software developers or hardware engineers. For the reason, many mobile application development firms need to ensure that they are doing a proper background check and hiring mobile app developers who have been trained and worked on previous mobile application projects before getting thrown into the a client’s project which potentially can have a lot of value in it. One mobile application development firm recently stated that the only way to know if an individual is a quality mobile application developer is to have him develop a few sample mobile applications or work on an actually pre-existing mobile application and see if the mobile app developer can add more functionalities to it or remove certain features from the mobile application.
Another issue which many mobile application development firms are facing when looking for mobile application developers is finding them; since the mobile application industry is fairly new, there are not a large number of mobile application developers ready for hire and the demand for mobile application developers are so high, there is a good chance that if there is an unemployed mobile application developers on the market, it will not be long until he or she finds a position at a mobile application development firm. One mobile application developer recently stated: “It is unbelievable the demand for mobile application developers and how easy it is for them to find a job. At the same time there are not a lot of mobile application developers out there so their value is at an all time high right now. If any mobile application developer can get a job at a major corporation or an up and coming start-up, then they will def have a step ahead in the game and have the opportunity to leverage this industry in their favor”
Although it is impossible to predict what the future holds, it is clear to see that the mobile app development industry is growing and will continue to expand into the future. The demand and need for mobile application developers are at an all time high and that trend is not expected to slow down anytime in the near future. One of the best industries for college students to get into right now is the mobile application development industry and if they can start a career in mobile application development, then it is safe to say that they have a very good chance of having a bright future ahead of themselves. Quality mobile application developers are out there, it is a matter of filtering out the poor ones and finding the good ones.
Are all Mobile Applications the Same?
Mobile Applications have become so popular that they can be found everywhere; many times when there is a commercial on television they will advertise about a mobile application or anytime there is an up and coming company (or even an established company), chances are that the company has a mobile application. With the rise and popularity for mobile apps for android and other platforms, one question which recently came up during a mobile app convention in San Francisco, California was: Is there (or will there be) a difference between mobile applications, tablet applications and other applications which one can download onto their computer?
After discussing this question with a group of mobile application developers and mobile application “experts”, the answer which everyone seemed to agree upon is that there is no major difference between mobile applications, tablet application and computer applications since the core functionalities and features for the application on various platforms will all be the same. Yes there may be some slight changes in the User Interface for the tablet application compared to the mobile application or for the computer application compared to the tablet application but the differences will not be major or anything where the user needs to completely re-learn the functionalities /features of the application. Another area where there may be a slight difference (more towards the development side) is with the screen resolution. Since Smartphones, Tablet PCs and Computers all have different screen resolutions, the application needs to be tailored to fit each type of screen resolution depending on the device which the application is running on. It is still possible to run a mobile application on a tablet PC but the picture/screen quality will not be as clear as if the user was using a tablet application specifically for his/her tablet.
One mobile application developer brought up an interested idea/concept that in the future, it would not surprise him if a whole new niche of applications start being rolling out known as Automobile Applications or some type of applications which are designed/tailored specifically for automobiles and different types of vehicles. This mobile application developer believed that these “Automobile Applications” would show the User Interface on the actual windshield of the car or on the side mirrors. The entire application would be touch screen (pressing on the glass) and the user would be able to move the application screen on the windshield if desired. These types of applications would help with finding specific locations/destinations, GPS, Communicating with individuals while still keeping both hands on the wheel, and many more possibilities. Yes, it is true that a majority of mobile applications currently have these features mentioned (above) but it will be different when the application is running on a larger screen (windshield or window) and the individual does not have to hold the device (Smartphone) while driving to access the application.
The possibilities for applications (specifically mobile applications) are endless and this is only the beginning of the mobile application industry. The demand and popularity for mobile applications are rising every day and the craze for mobile applications does not seem to be dying down anytime soon. As long as there are incoming requests for new applications, mobile application developers and smartphone app development firms will remain active and busy developing mobile applications for all types of users. It is impossible to predict the future but it can be a fairly accurate statement to say that the mobile application industry will be going strong for the next few years.
