    Mobile app development is the process of creating a mobile application. A mobile app is a software application that can be accessed via a personal computer or handheld device, such as an iPhone, Android phone, or iPad.

    There are many different types of apps available today, including social media apps (like Facebook and Instagram), navigation apps (like Google Maps and Waze), health-related apps (like Fitbit and Nike+ Run Club), entertainmentapps (like Netflix and HBO GO), shopping apps (Like Amazon Prime Now and Instacart).

    Developing these types of applications requires skills in both programming languages – like Java for Android Apps or Objective C for iOS Apps– as well as user interface design. In order to create an effective user experience, it's also important to have knowledge about various marketing channels – like paid advertising campaigns or viral content – that can help grow your app's reach.

    Steps of app development are a vast topic, and it's worth starting with the basics. In general terms, the whole process of creating a digital solution is software development, at the end of which we get a fully working product that launches and works on mobile devices. Then the software is uploaded to the official store, which corresponds to the platform, and after that, any user can take advantage of the fruits of the developers labor.

    The main difference between this approach and web development is that the result is a mobile product created, taking into account the peculiarities of the platform on which it will be launched. In addition, applications require installation on the device, and otherwise, you will not be able to launch them in any way. Meanwhile, a derivative of web development is a website that will be accessible from any browser on any device, be it a tablet, smartphone, desktop PC, and much more.
