Mobile application development is the process of making software for smartphones and digital assistants, most commonly for Android and iOS. The software can be preinstalled on the device, downloaded from a mobile app store, or accessed through a mobile web browser. The programming and markup languages used for this kind of software development include Java, Swift, C#, and HTML5.
Mobile app development is rapidly growing. From retail, telecommunications, and e-commerce to insurance, healthcare, and government, organizations across industries must meet user expectations for real-time, convenient ways to conduct transactions and access information. Today, mobile devices—and the mobile applications that unlock their value—are the most popular way for people and businesses to connect to the internet. To stay relevant, responsive, and successful, organizations need to develop the mobile applications that their customers, partners, and employees demand.
