Studies: Developers Failing at Mobile App Privacy, Security. Studies: Developers Failing at Mobile App Privacy, Security Two new research studies paint a bleak picture of mobile app privacy and security, putting the blame on developers in both cases.
In one, the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN) faulted many aspects of mobile app privacy considerations, citing unclear policies on the use of personal information, hard-to-find privacy information, excessive requested permissions and more. A look at the key trends in application development. Having recently attended Enterprise Apps World, I thought I would share my key takeaways from the show.
It's clear that most organisations are looking at the implications of going mobile and are considering how enterprise apps will work within their mobile strategy. IT teams are working to increase the productivity of their developers to build enterprise apps faster and more cost effectively, ensuring that they are multi-channel and that they are built for mobile. As a result, agile development is now a reality and as an industry we have started to move away from the old 'waterfall' development days when very big projects included long delivery times. Now businesses are looking for rapid response to change and incremental releases as well as a time-boxed development approach. Creating a Mobile Development Strategy for 2015. Now that 2015 is underway, it’s imperative to consider your mobile strategy framework for a prosperous year and beyond.
We will be discussing some key points to consider as you plan your strategy for the year ahead, and how they can help you usher in a successful future. These topics include: The rise of visual development environments Bimodal IT Cloud-based mobile development The HTML5 vs. native debate Take Advantage of Visual Development Environments Most enterprises can’t hire mobile developers fast enough, so their backlog of mobile apps continues to grow. Embrace Bimodal IT The trend of business analysts increasingly taking on the role of developer is in accordance with the principles of a bimodal IT strategy. On the cusp of the next wave of mobile monetization. As the mobile market matures, money is shifting from app sales to sales through apps.
That's good for developers. As Apple nears a $1 trillion market cap, it's easy to assume the Cupertino company has won. After all, just a few months after it introduced the Swift programming language, 20% of mobile developers were using it. Such growth, according to Redmonk analyst Stephen O'Grady, is "unprecedented" and suggests an iOS dominance that iOS market share doesn't. But according to a VisionMobile's new survey of over 8,000 developers, the platform wars between iOS and Android have ended in a stalemate. It has been Apple's world for the past decade, but the future...? Survey says Mobile App Developers have much interest in Android compare to iPad. The apple and android operating system platforms are in a light for the mobile application development.
They are superior in a market of smartphone devices. An android is the top most platform utilized by more than 50% users worldwide. An iOS stand by second position. An Android platform is the first preference of mobile application developers. A report indicates the percentage of interest developers show in the iPad applications. The other chart was released having demographics and statistics upon the iPhone, Android, and Apple iPad devices. The other graphical representation arrives with the statistics of all other types of mobile operating systems. It is now clear that, the attention of mobile application developers is drastically shifting towards the Android devices. HTML5 vs native: Harry Coder and the mudblood mobile app princes.
HTML5 has offered salvation from the tyranny of apps for years, yet most mobile developers resolutely refuse to embrace the web.
Despite HTML’s familiarity and promise of cross-device compatibility, native’s superior tooling and performance have convinced a generation of developers to go all in on native. If only this were true. The reality of “native” app development today is that virtually all apps include at least some HTML, if only for web views. There’s just no such thing as a pure native app.
We are all mudbloods, in other words. Yet, developers don’t fret over the future of the open web, they just want their apps to make money. Mobile Apps: HTML5, Native or Both? “L’ergonomie d’une App mobile en html5 ne sera jamais à la hauteur d’une App native” On peut désormais réaliser des Apps mobiles portables entre iOS et Android.
En revanche, l’usage de html5 ne permettra jamais d’atteindre le niveau d’ergonomie que l’on obtient avec du code natif. C’est le constat de Jean-Marc Durand, co-dirigeant de IsiApps, qui interviendra sur ce thème lors du salon Mobility for Business, des 15 et 16 octobre. Opinion: Going native to go cross-platform. (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Charles Schug) We’d all love to be able to cut our workload by half, two-thirds or even more.
The problem is, less effort often means a compromise on quality. For instance, developing applications for multiple platforms and devices using the same code across all environments often results in an app that is not optimised for the operating system, has less functionality, and delivers poorer performance. Although the developer Holy Grail is to “write once, deploy anywhere,” the app wrap ― additional coding ― needed to develop native apps poses too great a challenge for there to be any silver bullet. However, there are new technologies, hybrid development tools and importantly, open source frameworks that certainly help relieve the development burden. App developer trends Q1 2015 - VisionMobile. Our 8th Developer Economics survey has once again achieved an industry-leading scale, including responses from more than 8,000 app developers and 143 countries.
Their collective insight shows us an app economy that’s beginning to mature. Platform mindshare and priorities are fairly stable and developers are increasingly turning to cross-platform technologies to deal with the multi-platform reality. Tool adoption is gradually increasing and a shift in focus towards enterprise app development is underway.
