What is Mobile Application Development?

Mobile Application Development is the set of processes and procedures involved in writing software for small, wireless computing devices & handheld devices such as smartphones, tablets, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA’s) or Enterprise Digital Assistants.

These applications can be pre-installed on phones during manufacturing platforms, or delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing (e.g. JavaScript) to provide an “application-like” experience within a Web browser.

The three main operating systems that are employed for mobile application development are Android, Windows & iOS.

What are the technical skillsets & qualifications you require to work in this vertical?

Mobile User Interface Designing
The most important aspect of mobile app development is to build an excellent user interface (UI). The UI of any software (or application) is responsible for the interaction between the user and the software. Some primary elements of UI designing are:
• Positioning of components where the user is likely to expect them.
• Making use of colors.
• Fast loading and operation of the application.
• Activity Indicators.
• General help and basic tips.

Backend Computing
Backend computing may include:
• Database Management
• Security
• Interaction with Hardware
• Memory allocation implementation

Programming
Another important skill required to develop mobile applications is the knowledge of programming. Programming as a whole, might include several things:
• Getting hands on some commonly used programming languages like C, C++ and Java.
• Getting familiar with mobile platform Application Programming Interfaces (API) like Apple iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian.
• Learning web development languages like HTML 5 and CSS.
• Using cross platform mobile suites like Antenna and AMP (Accounting-Management-Promotion)

Business Expertise
Business expertise is a must to stand in the competition. A lot of people may not realize this but business skills also play a critical role in this field. An example of such a skill could be that a mobile application developer should know how to build an application for optimizing it’s visibility in the list of the available applications of the same category.
