Mobile Applications

Mobile Apps are where many development projects are focusing on.
However, given the limitations of the mobile environment,
careful thought needs to be put into what makes sense to be in a mobile app.

Web or Native
One important thing to understand is that given the two major players, Google and Apple, each phone system is very different. One approach is to create Native applications that take advantage of each platforms strengths and weaknesses.

However, each phone needs it’s own set of source code, which can be hard to maintain.

One solution is to create Mobile Web Apps.  This provides a common source code, but the experience for each users are not as clean.

The Hightower Group recommends a cover discovery process to be conducted
before digging to deeply into a Mobile Application.
There are so many questions that need to be answered.

Is the App for Employees? Customers? The general public?
Is the App limited in it’s functionality or does it do many things?
Are you going to sell this product or provide it for free?

These are just some of the questions that need to be explored.
