With the exploding popularity of smartphones and tablets, mobile App development is becoming a very popular medium of software creation. Mobile applications draw much of their roots from traditional software development but written to utilise the unique features and hardware of mobile devices.
Apps are much like desktop software in that they are designed to use a wide range of programming languages and frameworks and can take on a wide range of shapes in some of the following ways:
Native apps: These are created for specific platforms (iOS / Android) using the software development tools and languages supported by those operating systems.
Hybrid apps: These type of apps require the creation of a container developed in the native system that make it possible to embed an HTML5 app within it, allowing the app to take advantage of the diverse and unique elements of each native system.
Mobile application development is in a constant state of change and this trend will continue ongoing, especially as new devices are invented and launched in the market.
