Thinking About Developing And Designing A #Mobile App?

In today's modern world, if you're a performing artist, tech entrepreneur or online marketer, you're going to have to explore the question, "should I look into having a mobile app?" As smartphones continue to dominate the landscape, the need for mobile applications continue to grow.

So you have your website or blog, which I assume you've optimized for mobile web viewing, right? How do you determine if you even need a mobile app? There are many variables that may apply here but let's simplify this and say you have a product or service that can help your audience/customers. I think most persons considering a mobile app are looking to explore mobile app monetization or how I can make money with my new mobile application?

If you have 30 minutes to spare in your day, check out this Google I/O 2011 Briefing [start from 2:30]. Granted the presenter is kind of a sleeper but if you can get through it, you will come away knowledgeable and with a better idea of what direction you need to take before moving forward.

Grab a coffee, water or Sapphire and tonic, sit back and explore the possibilities of not just building a mobile app but possibly building a business.

Congratulations, you made it through the presentation!

Thanks to the people at you can now explore some mobile designs and what solution is right for your entrepreneurial aspirations. Bottom line, even though apps are smaller than designing a full blown desktop application there are many things to consider.

Congratulations, you made it through the Slideshare!

Let's say you're a developer or someone that knows HTML, Javascript or CSS [maybe all 3]. PhoneGap is a great solution because its free, an open source framework and uses standardized web API's for the platforms that matter to you.

Congratulations, you found an open source framework!

Finally, from our friends at Google, a video showing us how mobile apps are changing our world in 5 distinct scenarios.

Who knows you might be the next person to develop an gps pizza app that doesn't require an exact address for delivery?
