Getting Started With iOS Development

When Steve Jobs took the stage in Moscone West in January of 2007, he not only introduced the world to the iPhone. Many would argue that he also introduced the future of personal computing. Apple took a full-fledged functioning, 100% wireless computer and put it in our pockets, and simultaneously changed the way the world works, plays and communicates.

Though other operating systems like Google’s Android have since emerged to have greater market share due to a fragmented hardware/software model, Apple has created a product that consumers and developers both clearly see as being more valuable. Apple’s approach to integrating software with its hardware devices creates a powerful user experience combination that Android struggles to recreate on handsets from dozens of third party manufacturers.

So if you’re wanting to create the next great mobile app for consumers, iOS is a great platform to begin.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve likely had a front row seat as mobile devices have proliferated right before your eyes. They’re everywhere. And while a laptop was enough to make you “mobile” just a few short years ago, now it’s more likely that you have a laptop, a tablet, and a smartphone and now use all three as a part of your workflow.

Now, consider Morgan Stanley’s report that mobile traffic will surpass desktop traffic in 2014. That’s right. Mobile traffic, defined as those who access the internet from a smartphone or tablet device, will surpass all internet traffic accessed from a desktop or laptop computer this year.

In light of this fact, it begs the question as to why there are still prominent internet sites out there that offer miserable experiences on mobile devices. Even sites that would seem to cater to a more technical demographic make for awful browsing on mobile.
