Is It Necessary To Create Mobile App For All Platforms?

It is a mobile world. Tech savvy people would feel I am too out dated and probably I need to wipe the dust over my reminiscence. But when I say that we have the world in the mobile now – a reshuffle of words and I am famous among them again! And now every entrepreneur wants to have his business penetration right into the hands of the people. Literally.

So developing mobile app is the complimentary requirement in every project no matter what nature it is in. But what remains an important open discussion is it really so necessary to create a mobile app for every platform?

Multi Platform Mobile App

My answer for this is going to be NO, we really do not require to create an app for every platform in the mobile world. We are engulfed with more than 50 Operating Systems that are available or are been used today. Also if we take the top five mostly used apps still it does not make sense to create an app for them.

There are various parameters that one should consider while choosing a platform. But before we get into those let us get acquainted with the types of apps that are working its way in the market today. We are surrounded by free apps, paid apps and in-app purchase apps that are making up the whole colony. And they technically slot into apps made in HTML5 and the native app. Which to select would be an entire new topic that I would like to pen down some other time.

Back on track, platform is not related any specific device mostly(there are exceptions), so if you create an app it should float seamlessly for all those devices that are sincerely using that OS. Take into consideration; we have Android currently used on a large scale in the Asian subcontinent (Android and iOS have around 88% of the market tapped today). And android is been widely used rather manipulated by the many smartphone manufactures today.
Let’s say if you are having an app that has to talk with the hardware and works on various interdependencies. So if you wish to scavenge out exactly what is going to be your app’s performance in the market then going for Android is not a good choice, go for iOS. Why so? Read on

  • Apple has its own OS i.e. iOS that is completely dedicated to only the models by Job’s brainchild only.
  • Even if there are variations Apple has very less fluctuations in their hardware dependencies so there is less to worry for the developer.
  • Also if you require high end specifications they are tactfully been plowed in their phones.

The next important thing that one needs to consider is the region where you target to market your app more. If you are having your major hold in the US and UK then you are having the maximum of Apple users while the Asian continent are loyal to Google’s open source OS more. Go with the business penetration you wish to create in the particular region.

The next context to be checked out is the need of a cross platform app. I would advise you that if you have a content based app or with least or no OS diffusion then you could go for creating a cross platform as it just acts as layer over the web which can sustain in all platforms to a large extent. It just is a wrapper that works fine for those who wish to generate mobile user influence without the pinch to the pocket.

Doing proper analysis and going by the results would not only help you get a good experience in the app world but also help you create a long lasting foundation. Following the bigwigs would test you first and teach you afterwards. But its better if that is stark opposite right? Would like to know your views.

iPad 3 App Developer in Los Angeles, Southern California, USA


There has been a lot rumors surrounding the release and functionality of Apple’s new tablet, the iPad 3. While no one really knows what to expect from Apple, the mobile app development industry can always expect the unexpected from the very secretive company.

While there is a lot of speculation regarding new functionality on the iPad 3, one thing is for certain. Competition in the mobile device market is fierce, so innovation is critical — even from Apple. Without innovation the demand for new devices wanes. Current Android tablets from Samsung and HTC have better resolution than the iPad 2, and Apple will need to raise the bar with its iPad 3 screen design to continue to dominate the tablet market.

As a future iPad 3 developer I see four key features that will cause most of the buzz and success for the new iPad 3 device. Of course, these new features have yet to be announced by Apple, but speculation is running high that most — if not all — will be on the new iPad 3.

The top four rumored new features include: Retina Display, Quad Core processor, Siri and a new camera. If Apple includes these four rumored features into the iPad 3, they will certainly maintain — and probably expand — their lead over competing Android Tablets. In my professional opinion Siri for Android will never happen.

Apple, over the course of its history, has always done the unexpected, so Apple fans have come to expect more of the same with the iPad 3. While the planning of future IOS devices extends years into the future, it will be interesting to see what happens in to Apple without its leader, Steve Jobs, at the top.

As long as Apple continues to keep new features for its mobile devices under wraps, rumors will persist as to the functionality of new Apple devices even before they are announced. IPad developers have come to expect this from Apple, and the better ones have learned to incorporate the features of the new Apple iPhones, iPods and iPads into the new mobile apps they design.

Android and iPhone App Developer

Just a year or two ago, it seemed the only kind of mobile platform with a market to sell to was the iPhone. But today, if you’re building a mobile app, you can’t afford to ignore the Android (and maybe even Blackberry) market, too.

If you’re building a brand new app, you’re probably wondering if it’s smart to build a multi-platform app. But what are the considerations for doing that? Is it simple to develop for two, or even three platforms at once?

Well, yes and no.

The heart of the matter is that the devices and the development environments for each are [Read more...]
