There are different aspects with respect to which mobile phones vary from each other. These can be the attributes, operating systems, or screen sizes. Cross-platforms are going to be required by developers, and such platforms must have the abilities to help developers to make such apps. Thus, more apps will be available for users, which will have more work done by the developers. The application of such apps will require the creation of new apps every time some new device gets released, which is a huge problem for companies that develop apps. And, such a problem can be solved easily with the help of cloud computing.
The problems faced by app development, as well as mobile computing, have many solutions. The apps, along with the data, can be stored on servers, using mobile cloud, instead of mobile phones. In this way, the users will be able to access apps, as well as the data, quite easily, using mobile cloud via mobile phones. Tools like HTML5 or MEAPs can be used by developers in the development of apps in order to get the solution to work.
Utilization of mobile along with IoT for development of mobile apps
It is often difficult to create an app with the capability of operating on different devices. There are ways to overcome this issue, as well.
3) Hybrid apps
Development of hybrid apps for mobile devices allows the reduction of the total effort that is invested into the development of the apps. In this case, developers of apps can take the benefit of the physical attributes that mobile phones can have. This method is quite unique, as it allows a combination of native abilities of the phones with HTML5’s architectural ability. This kind of app development is cloud-based, and this downloadable application can operate majority of the interfaces of the users in browsers embedded in mobile gadgets. Developers are thus saved from having to write codes of apps for each operating system. Most of the top companies now develop app with the use of this approach.
2) Using MEAPs for Mobile App
Even though mobile apps can operate on the mobile cloud, supporting them for their operation on multiple gadgets is also important. This much necessary support will ensure that the apps can run on appliances with various attributes. Such devices come from various manufacturers of mobile phones. MEAPs can make it easy to provide support for the apps that are cloud-based. Most of the top companies that develop apps have started using MEAPs, which is an IoT mechanism, which is a group of a wide range of products as well as services, to enable the development of apps. The platforms of MEAPs can perform specific tasks for the mobile devices, as they permit to the mobile device from cloud to adjust on device’s screen, which further allows the conversion of data to an interface that’s more user-friendly. The complete authentication mechanism of MEAPs establishes connection to the mobile device, which proves to be useful for the users of mobile phones since memories can be easily erased if the device is lost.
1)Using HTML5 for Developing Mobile Apps
It is possible for app developers to overcome the common problem of app development by using HTML5 for the creation of cloud apps. As a result, developers will be able to make apps that will be able to function on multiple gadgets easily. HTML5 allows developers to decide upon the end gadget, with the use of the apps. This is an IOT tool which can allow real-time query solving, and to ascertain that the mobile device receives data with a fixed set of definite scope.
