Noticed a couple of news items on BBC News which make for interesting reading if you are interested in mobile applications. The first item I saw was on the market for mobile apps.
The market for mobile applications, or apps, will become “as big as the internet”, peaking at 10 million apps in 2020, a leading online store says.
But it is not all good news…
However, GetJar say, the developer community will decline drastically as each developer makes less money.
This is certainly apparent in the iTunes App Store where expensive useful apps, are virtually immediately undercut by similar low cost or even free apps.
But it doesn’t seem to be putting people off with the following news:
Symbian, the operating system on nearly half the world’s smartphones, is to become involved in the development of mobile applications, or apps.
So who’s creating these mobile apps and what are they creating?
