The use of mobile Internet technology is already widespread, with more than 1.1 billion people currently using smartphones and tablets. The rapid and enthusiastic adoption of these devices has demonstrated that mobile Internet technology is far more than just another way to go online and browse. Equipped with Internet-enabled mobile computing devices and apps for almost any task, people increasingly go about their daily routines using new ways to understand, perceive, and interact with the world. In a remarkably short time, mobile Internet capability has become a feature in the lives of millions of people, who have developed a stronger attachment to their smartphones and tablets than to any previous computer technology.
New mobile software and apps offer a wide range of capabilities, effectively placing the capabilities of an array of gadgets (including PCs) in a mobile package that provides voice calling, Internet access, navigation, gaming, health monitoring, payment processing, and cloud access. We estimate that for the applications we have sized, the mobile Internet could generate annual economic impact of $3.7ï¿½trillion to $10.8ï¿½trillion globally by 2025. This value would come from three main sources: improved delivery of services, productivity increases in select work categories, and the value from Internet use for the new Internet users who are likely to be added in 2025, assuming that they will use wireless access either all or part of the time.
Our Mobile competencies started in 2002 with Microsoft Windows CE based software development. We released our first Windows CE Visual Basic software for Sales agents in New York. Ever since, we pioneered in the development of Mobile Applications. Today, as mobile applications increasingly complex, we pioneered in delivering Mobile Computing architectures with Cloud Computing.
Aside from our general expertise in iOS, Android and Windows Mobile Phone platforms, we have particularly deep experience in the following areas:
Mobile phones have penetrated every geographical landscape including areas with limited bandwidths and intermittent network coverage. The reach of mobile phone has grown exponentially, and even remote areas with limited network coverage and capacity are great metros for mobile phones. We have also seen the exponential growth in the creation of mobile applications that require high graphics, interactivity and consistent communication. Such features have a direct correlation with a need for higher levels of mobile data and at times, require larger bandwidth dedication.
As expected, this has resulted in major bottlenecks in network infrastructure, not the least in developing countries which do not have the same networking capabilities and instead serve a larger user base. Hence, creating mobile applications which address these network constraints by geographies will be a key to a successful adoption. In a scenario, where wholesale network changes are not forthcoming, user needs are not going down, mobile phone capabilities are ever increasing and developers are catering by creating highly interactive applications, the only way out is to inculcate certain design principles that could alleviate the problem of low bandwidth and intermittent network coverage.
We pioneered in Mobile Applications Designs for Limited Connectivity.
Mobile is the most rapidly expanding technology of today's technical world. Its introduction and collaboration with internet and cloud has revolutionized the way communication and business commence throughout the globe. This has led to Mobile Technologies becoming a whole new industry. As Mobile devices become the most effective source of information dispatch and consumption, interacting with a mobile device to gather or share this information, or perform any utility tasks has come out to be the prime focus of developers and designers.
Mobile interface design becomes challenging due to smaller/ varied screen sizes & resolutions, battery limitations, frequently changing connectivity, absence of physical mouse and keyboard and presence of a large variety of mobile platforms.
Our UI design starts with understanding the user goal, i.e. having an insight into what the user wants to achieve. The focus is not on the functional aspects of the application, but the final state that the user desires. These goals are then thought over to formulate application functionality and features.
The next important point our mobile strategists make sure is application be smooth, tidy, swift, predictable and fault-tolerant.
Our success mantra is application of various UI design patterns, specialized in our research labs, that , when used judiciously, they bring reusability, consistency in the platform, ease of access to the user and ease of implementation to the engineering team.
