Just like IoT devices, mobile apps should be instrumented to send usage, feedback, error and engagement telemetry to analytic systems.
Mobile Strategies for Business
Cross-platform tools allow developers to repurpose existing skills to accelerate native, multi-platform mobile development.
New WebViews with the same performance as mobile browsers mean web skills are finally viable for building fast, cross-platform hybrid apps.
A mobile app must be its own fortress and never assume platforms are encrypted, authenticated, use VPN or require a PIN for security.
Intermittent wireless connectivity requires mobile apps to follow sync patterns using pre-fetched data via APIs and offline local storage.
Replace heavyweight, desktop focused, bandwidth eating, Web 1.0 sites with lightweight Mobile Web apps using responsive web design.
The use of remote pixel projection technology to view Win32 apps on mobile devices should be considered nothing more than an interim workaround.
Replace wasteful, server round-trip Web 1.0 sites built with Cold Fusion, CGI, ASP, Servlets, Perl and Livewire with AJAX empowered web apps.
Migrate Web 1.0 Intranet apps built for Netscape + Internet Explorer 3 to HTML5, CSS3 & ECMAScript5 for modern browsers.
