I was trying to demo few of my iPhone applications and the features of my iPad and iPhone to one of my guest the past week, who was accompanied by my close friend Mr.Harikrishnan, Director Operations, Blazedream Technologies, Chennai.
He was amazed to see the very interactive and advanced iPhone and iPad gadgets for the first time and guest was little surprised too. I had to say, that the future is going to be “Mobile Devices” and “Mobile applications” because of features!!!.
Strongly, there are many superior features in Gadgets than the Laptop and desktop computers for the simple reasons. The Data access on the move, Wireless Internet, Interactive, GPS, Location Notification, Video calls, Accelerometers and Wireless Print and so on…… Typically I like to give an example of my own app. Even with computers, it is very difficult to make an ID card or make set of ID Cards, because one need a layout, database fields, label fields, positioning etc. But with my ICE, In Case of Emergency mobile application, it is a childs play to create ID Cards on mobile for whole of family and friends. App link is here.
This is one of the greatest example, why I should say, iPhone device is more superior than the Desktop and PC’s ! !!. Well, coming to the topic mobile applications and linking it web applications, it makes a close sense of relationship…read further to know why?
The Web Designing & Developing company Blazedream Technologies, based in Chennai is one of the best web developing company located in chennai, well as they have 12 years of experience in executing very complex web services and web applications! and animated interactive flash web applications comprising .Net and PHP platforms, the focus is shifting to mobile applications division to cope up the future demand of mobile application versions of all of their deliveries.
Well, during the demo, I had to disclose the secret that there will be a possibility of an additional 30 ~ 40% of business leads from existing and new customers for customisation, developing and delivery of mobile compatible application products & deliveries.
Immediate devices such as for iOS, Android, Windows Mobile 7 and Blackberry based Handhelds are waiting for mobile version of every web service and web information application information available for download and access!
The type/Method of mobile applications should be classified in 4 ways.
1) Off Line applications
2) Online Applications depending on OS SDK and API’s
3) Online Applications depending on Web browsers installed on devices basically called mobile version of any website or a web services.
4) Webkit based Mobile applications
Each of above type have their own advantages and disadvantages, depends on the nature and complexity of the application, also matching the budget constraints and time for deliveries, availability of resources, etc.! But making app using OS recommended SDK’s could make the app 100% efficient in terms of usability & loading speed. Further updates and new releases of original web model, makes mandatory for IT department to outsource the mobile application versions to be updated instantly features are synced upto date with web model!
It is for the developers to Convey and Convince the customers about the type of application and features and future of mobile application! Also it is a challenge for customers to understand the nature of gadget, understand the devices and mobile operating system to define the immediate development and releases.
