Shared High Level Mobile App Requirements

Mobile apps and app developers have followed a similar line to that of downloaded
music, with some killer being created but sitting aside a lot of filler. This structure still
bodes well for the app market if it follows along similar lines to that of music

download
and as we’ve seen from
iPhone and Android apps

rocketing sales, this seems likely.

With the recent news that sales of eBooks, smart phones and tablets have surpassed that
of laptops, PC s and notebooks it all certainly looks good for apps. So wha
t can we
expect to see in the future of the app market? A recent survey by tech trend site gigaOM
has suggested that the US mobile applications market will grow from $6.8bn in 2011 to a
huge $25bn by 2015


now it doesn’t take too many algebraic equations
to translate this
into layman’s terms.

Other figures show that mobile advert spending increased by 32 per cent in the UK in
2008
-

2009 and the trend continued in 2010. The change has begun and is centred on the
fact that investment in mobile applications a
nd advertisement is not to be left to the
daring few, but has become a channel most serious businesses have to utilise for
marketing. The case for this has been added to further, with the coming of web enabled
tablets.

Figures in the US from gigaOM suggest

that 38 per cent of companies are using more
business mobile applications

in the work place and 30 per cent more social media
marketing. This is predicted as set to continue for the next half decade with 43 per cent of
businesses saying they will incorpor
ate mobile technologies and apps more in the future.

There are a number of different opinions among app developers on where mobile
applications are going. Most believe that the future of applications is mobile, and with the
sales of mobile devices passing
that of fixed, heavier ones this makes sense.

So the question for us is what will our App need to do?

By all means interject as needed…
