Have you recently checked your mobile phone? Did you notice that your wallpaper is now being animated? Or have you noticed that your brother's mobile phone has a game file that your mobile device does not have? Or probably, your mobile phone does not have a security option to better protect you and your personal files while the others are vastly protected.
All of these features are what we commonly refer to as mobile applications. And these mobile applications are created by mobile application developers. Mobile application developers are also programmers whose main working environment is the mobile device. Unlike the desktop programmers, the mobile application programmers need to delimit themselves with what the mobile device can only accommodate. This means that prior to developing any application for the mobile device they need to study in detail the limitations of it such as memory capacity, display accommodation, and a lot more. The careful analysis of the restrictions that the mobile device possesses will empower the application developer to create a fully efficient mobile application.
The mobile application developers are the ones responsible in the way the mobile device has evolved and developed and majority of the things that they do are software based. This means to say that whatever the mobile industry holds, part of that future is controlled by the application developer. However, being a mobile application developer, it is necessary that you understand how to battle with the limitations of the mobile device so that you can maximize the potentials of the application that you are trying to develop.
