Nine App Development Trends That Are Defining the State of Mobility

The state of mobility, generally speaking, is awfully healthy. As many new companies get started and plunge into their markets, they're looking at a "mobile-first" IT strategy that at times sets up a mobile app before even doing a Website. Then there must be a strategy for how employees use mobile devices for company business: Will they be allowed to use their smartphones, tablets and laptops, or will the company provide some or all of the equipment? All of this portends well for mobile app developers, mobility management companies, integrators and device makers. However, it all hinges upon how good those mobile apps are and how important they become to users. They have to be easy to understand and use, and they must work 100 percent of the time. There's too much competition out there for an app to stumble. In this eWEEK slide show, we look at Appcelerator and IDC's recent "2015 Mobile Trends Report," which surveyed 5,778 developers to get their take on the state of mobility. Here's a look at the top developer trends that are defining the state of mobility.
