What is Mobile Development?

07 March 2013

Wi-Fi, 3G and now 4G have enabled people to access the internet on the go. This is complemented by the huge popularity of mobile devices - tablets as well as smart phones. The importance of the mobile internet, therefore, cannot be underestimated.

It is very frustrating to access a website on a mobile phone only to find out there is no mobile version of it. Not only does this cause problems with the speed of the website, but it is very likely that your screen will be too small to view all of the website without having to zoom in and scroll across. The main aim of mobile development is to solve problems such as this and to improve the overall experience for the mobile user.

Mobile devices and mobile internet are now quick enough for mobile versions of websites to load just as quickly as normal websites do on a PC. Hence, there is no excuse for companies to not have a mobile web presence as well as their regular website. Mobile website development helps to provide this presence.

Along with mobile website development, there is mobile application development. Mobile applications are commonly known as ‘apps’, such as the ones you would download from Apple’s App Store. These assist mobile users in experiencing certain services they may require while on the go. NatWest, for example, have a mobile banking app. Rather than having customers do their banking through a mobile web browser, account holders can download an application which makes the whole process much quicker and more streamlined.

Mobile development is all about making mobile services just as good as the full-blown PC versions, while also making sure they are optimised for the best possible performance on mobile devices.
