How The Mobile Cloud Can Boost App DevelopmentMarch 7, 2011 No Comments
With the advent of mobile cloud computing, increasing effort has been put into developing platforms that simplify the development of cloud-based mobile applications. Creating apps for the mobile cloud is significantly different than developing apps for a native smartphone platform like the iPhone or Android. But over the long run, the mobile cloud computing model may prove more profitable for app developers, and open the field to a larger number of developers.
Current mobile development platforms
In case of the current native platforms, developers need to be knowledgeable about the platform-centric APIs and development tools provided by the platform vendors, in this case Apple and Google. Objective- C is the main development language being used for writing iPhone apps that are being offered in Apple‘s App Store. This may not be difficult for experienced C programmers, but Objective-C requires significant programming capabilities and may pose a steep learning curve for newcomers. Android developers use Java, C or C++ as the main programming languages for app development.CLOUD COMPUTING, Featured Articles, MOBILE
