When talking about Apple or the iPhone usually quite complicated because they are generated different reactions among technology enthusiasts. But beyond what you can feel every one as a geek, you can not deny that the Apple tablet has caused a revolution . And I do not refer specifically to the use of the device, but the change caused in the market for software and hardware for the future.
Many companies never even dreamed of electronic tablets manufactured now, and Many developers spend much of their day creating applications for this device class. Not surprisingly, the iPhone already has 100 000 specific apps
, when the original gadget has not even served two years. This clearly demonstrates the power of attraction that has generated the Cupertino firm hand of the tablet, because it opened a new door to the world of software developers. This does not mean that all applications developed for the iPhone are masterpieces, but we’ve seen some really very good. In addition, developers are inclined to insert their apps IOS because they know they can get to a wider audience quickly . Android is a great operating system, but some bad moves in the release of Honeycomb prevented the initial success has expected, and this is reflected in the amount of apps available for the software (only 1,000). Today for today it is clear that the attraction between iPhone developers and not end so easily. Chances are that the number of available apps continue to grow unchecked , so that soon we will see new records.
The last time the apps for smartphones and electronic tablets have become a boom . Today we can say that there are applications for any task you can think of, and more and more developers enter the scene of the software for the latest gadgets.
But it seems that the current trend is just a sample of the explosion that apps will see the market in some years. According to a study by IDC
, a major research firm, to be discharged annually 2015 183 000 000 000 Applications
dedicated to smart phones and tablets. A number of interesting, right? If we compare this figure with that obtained in 2010 (10,700 million), means that we have just seen the tip of the iceberg. But what is striking about this situation is that another research firm, ABC Research , said that by 2016 be discharged “only” 44 billion apps . Who will be right? Why are there so much difference in the estimates
According to IDC the real mass market apps will come when developers see their products a profitable business model . Experts suggest that when the developers include a means of payment within applications, as well as advertising and other e-commerce options, will cause the real boom will lead to the bestial figure above. While they are only forecasts are to be taken into account in the future. It seems to be on stage “sweet” for developers who want to try their luck in the world of apps for smartphones and electronic tablets
