The demands on the part of the the present generation of end-users of mobile phones have ushered in innovations in the technological field. With demands arising on the lines of more processing power, flexibility, reliability, security and ability to integrate  with other applications, has made organizations and the IT professionals work harder to develop cost-effective mobile applications.

Mobile applications are  user ready applications or  customized applications that are run on mobile devices through its in-built operating systems.  Such present day technology based mobile  devices with the ability to install/uninstall applications and manage its memory, data storage space and power are known as‘Smartphones’. Further the  adaptation of technological innovations into
the business world has seen smartphones and tablet computers becoming a necessity for  business intelligence.

Understanding the requirements of the next generation the developers need to focus on areas  such as Location-Based Services (LBS), Mobile Media Streaming, social networking, messaging and synching with various social networking sites,  mobile voIP and gaming facilities.

IT service providers with a strong presence in the mobile ecosystem will understand the important aspects and will be able to develop mobile applications for various platforms. The project execution engineers conceptualizes the mobile applications based on UI design, prototype and wireframes, facilitate porting applications between platforms and devices, develop applications for server-side as well as for location and mapping service. It also facilitates  integration of third party components and coordinating with device manufacturers and carriers.

With the rise in the number of smartphone and PDA users, the demand for application development is also on the rise. The increasing demand has led to the mobile application development to include offshore developers and  majority of these applications  being developed by third party application developers from distant corners of the world.  The telecom providers also  reap in the benefits of the such applications. The offshore agencies provide facilities for developing mobile applications for most of the high-end mobiles and various platforms.

A well developed mobile application would provide its  users with  functional values and retain customers through applications for business purpose too.
