MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT
With the exploding popularity of smartphones and tablets, mobile application development is becoming a more and more popular medium of software creation. The creation of mobile applications draws much of its roots from traditional software development. The end result, however, is software intended to utilize the unique features and hardware of mobile devices.
With desktop PC software development, programmers must create an application that can operate on a minimum set of hardware. The same goes for mobile applications, though the hardware variances in this instance are much more minimal. At the same time, the hardware on smartphones and tablets are nowhere near to the caliber of laptops and PCs, which means mobile apps must be designed to show optimum performance. For example, a gaming app would be limited in its graphical elements due to the limited graphics processors of mobile devices.
