iPhone app development and iBusiness apps: the ultimate reinforcement kit!

 


Visitors: 158

“Why is iPhone app development raving hot to developers, enterprises, small businesses, and in a nutshell—to all revenue-seekers?” This may sound a sort of a leading question, but it’s far from being one. This mania around iPhone application development needs no corroboration; it’s unmissable. Here’s a scoop to that effect, “the market for mobile application development services, including application creation, management, distribution and extension services, has reached $US 20.5 billion vs. $US 6.8 billion in app downloads in 2011? A huge chunk of these downloads (close to 46%) are iPhone apps, reinforcing the huge growth in iPhone application development, which has seen the iPhone app market go up 83% from November 2010 to November 2011.

If this sounds crazy enough, 2012 predictions herald another smashing year for iPhone revelers. If you have been following the iPhone-app-curve, you might well have come upon this intriguing bit: iPhone business apps account for close to two-thirds of app sales. If iPhone apps are big, ibusiness apps are mammoth.

There are no parallels even to challenge this dominance on the outside, with every third Business App download being an iPhone app. That when Android is puffed up to the seams with multi-genre apps and is widely considered the most viable development platform, commercially. iPhone Business Apps: Making better sense of your business There is something very unique to iPhone application development that puts iPhone business apps in a league of its own. For one, iPhone developers have always made a clean break with ‘cramming’. While apps aimed at business users continue to cram features and functionalities designed for the PC into a mobile phone, iPhone business apps keep away from all doodads. Many business app developers are fundamentally misunderstanding the mobile user experience by producing “shrink to fit" versions of solutions designed for the PC.

The mobile experience isn't about accessing several gigabytes of data; it's about quickly accessing the information you need, when you need it. According to Microsoft Tag, of the 4+ billion cell phones in the world 1.08 billion are smartphones and more than 50% of local searches are done on mobile devices. 22% of all searches in 2012 will be mobile and it is predicted that in 2014 mobile internet usage will overtake desktop usage.

Research claims that more than 11% of Americans owned a tablet device as of August 2011 and iPad users have downloaded 3 billion apps since its release in 2010. The iPhone took two years to accomplish that same feat. Plain and simple: apart from having mobile friendly sites and web applications, business owners will continue deriving all-round benefits from iPhone application development in 2012.
