writing, showed that Android is now the primary OS used by nearly 40 percent of businesses and it is
currently on the rise. Windows, on the other hand, have dropped to 36.07 percent and both are

Smartphones do many of the same tasks that computers can do.
The portability aspect of Smartphones are just one reason why mobile phones have had an increased presence in the workplace and another. is the advancements in mobile UI is another reason. The simplicity of mobile UI is a big reason why mobile

Mobile phones are now the dominant method. People interact with the Internet. Mobile phones are eaten around the world. It’s not surprising, then, that mobile app development is becoming critical Enterprise IT skills.
Mobile-dominant reality poses a big challenge for enterprise IT because most shops have continued to

What is mobile app development?
Mobile application development is becoming a more and more popular medium of software creation.
and is software intended to utilize the unique features and hardware of mobile devices. Desktop PC

The same goes for mobile applications but the hardware variances in this instance are much
More minimal, mobile apps must be designed to show optimum performance. Solving the Issue
Performance on any given device is ultimately dependent on developing an app natively on that device.
This means designing the code specifically for the hardware on a particular device.
What types of mobile apps have in nature?
the most popular operating systems, iOS and Android, have done an excellent job in standardizing the
types of mobile app development available
Native Apps: These are apps created for a specific platform (iOS or Android) using the software

- ionic framework
- sencha touch 2
- React Native
- JQUERY MOBILE
- ADOBE AIR
- KENDO UIWhat is Software Development kit?
Mobile app development requires access to software development kits (SDKs) that provide an
environment through which programmers can design and test code in a simulated mobile environment.
Creating an app does not require full use of these kits as, for example, mobile games can be created
entirely using Unity and then the Android SDK is used to simply ensure its deliverability on mobile
devices. Developing apps for iOS requires a paid iOS Developer license, whereas the Android SDK is
freely available to users.
