An Overview on Mobile App Development

Mobile app development is a process of developing mobile applications for mobile devices. These are used for enterprise’s digital assistance, personal digital assistance and mobile phones. These apps could be installed by the manufacturers. So, the users of mole phones get those apps preinstalled at time of purchasing.

These apps could be offered to the users as web applications. At the time of developing software, the mobile app developers need to consider hardware specification, configurations and screen size. Higher demand of mobile app software, increases the job creation and profitability opportunity. Designing the user interface is one of the most important functionalities of the app developer. Designing the UI includes input, mobility, constraints, screen and context as the outline of design. The user of the phone will interact with the phone. The UI considers the components of software and hardware.

The user input systems help the user to manipulate system and the output shows the effect of manipulation by the users. The constraints of the UI design include limited form factors and attention. This can be simplifying with an example, the mobile screen size for the hand of users. Mobile UI context cues signal from the activity of user, like searching a location through mobile app.

Window’s UI automation:

This is used to test the Microsoft software. This is generally preinstalled in the Windows 7 and can be installed from the official site of Microsoft.

Blackberry simulator

A larger numbers of blackberry emulators are available to test the actual blackberry software. This helps to test trackwheel, software, keyboard and screen of the mobile device.
