Update: Development of MobiOne has been discontinued. Read the End of Life Notice for more information.
You may have noticed over the last couple of years that the mobile app world is changing at a wickedly fast pace.
Those of you who are developing mobile and web apps are in a constant state of updating and adjusting your applications to include the latest technologies, the newest phone sizes, and security concerns. And those of you who are trying to break into the mobile app arena are discovering how an over abundance of amazing technological advancements quickly become a pain in the you-know-what when you're trying to incorporate the lot of them into your app.
What's more, those of us providing app builder software are stuck in the middle of this battle, trying to keep up with the latest trends, decide the future of those trends, and meet high customer demands wherein half of those customers are hard-core developers and the other half are have no idea what API even is. Throw in the speculation of latest features and rumors of new directions from mobile phone makers, and what you get is a chaotic battle of balance for all parties.
We've done a lot of research on what these trends currently are and have compiled a list of what we feel are the top 5 trends in mobile development. These 5 trends represent the vast majority of the new apps breaching into today's market, and we feel strongly that these trends also have the strongest staying power.
We're looking forward to seeing how these trends transcend time. With the plethora of new technology coming out on what seems like a daily basis, we're curious how you feel about these trends.
What technologies are you using in your apps? Are you moving your apps to the Cloud? Do you think we'll see NFC available in iPhones anytime soon?
I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts, opinions, and concerns about these trends.
For those of you curious about what's new in our app builder, MobiOne Studio, I am happy to report that an upcoming release of MobiOne Studio 2.5 is imminent. A production release is already available for tinkering by clicking here.
