The term “Mobile Apps” has many meanings, but in essence it is software that operates on some form of mobile device. This could be something as simple as an application that searches the internet for the nearest restaurant to your current location through to a fully integrated mobile workforce application that sends data to and from staff that work away from the office, with the data they collect electronically automatically interfacing with databases or other back office systems. Again the emphasis is to provide more efficient ways of doing things.
Today, there are numerous mobile development platforms like Windows , iPhone (iOS), Android, and Blackberry to name a few, and whilst new applications appear all the time in the consumer market, many businesses are still to appreciate the full potential of Mobile Information Technology.
