How Much Does a Mobile App Cost? | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Mobility

How much does it cost to make an app is almost as popular a question as it is confusing. No one tries to learn the exact costs of, say, making a movie: people realize that there's an overwhelming amount of variables involved on which they depend. But almost every day a new inquiry is posted on a tech forum, Quora, or Reddit, as to how much it'd take to build a mobile business app. Such calculation, in many ways, is even harder to make. Is there a way to tackle the question properly? First we want you to understand that any exact figures couldn't possibly be given straight away, without the details, and that all the so-called online app development cost calculators are, essentially, just marketing baits. That said, there is still some info you can analyze to get a frame of reference; to get a rough idea about a budget you can squeeze an app in. Here's what you should ... (more)

Mobile Expert Interview Series: SAP's Jack Chawla

SAP's Jack Chawla I had the privilege to interview Jack Chawla, who is Senior Director, Technology Marketing with SAP's Mobile Business Unit last week via email.

The Mobile App Development Differentiator: User Experience – Part 1

The delineation between great mobile apps and bad ones is becoming easier and easier to see as the mobile app ecosystem edges closer and closer to maturity.  What makes a great mobile app? Simply put, it's a great experience for the user. The best apps in the current marketplace are those that can engage the user beyond a mere day or two, and become the go-to destination on their smartphones for an extended period of time. In this two part post, I will discuss a real life case of how a great user experience leads to app success and explain the steps that developers can follow to enhance their own apps' user experience. For developers, extended use of an app is the holy grail. Whereas mobile app discovery poses an enormous challenge - one that developers are still struggling to overcome - it's really only half the battle. If a developer can not only get the user to ...

Tweaking Timeouts

I have a weakness for a particular Android game that shall remain nameless (to protect the innocent, of course). It frequently complains that I have "a poor network connection." Even when I'm one hop from a fiber ring. Interestingly enough, it is almost always the case that this notification (and poor responsiveness on the part of the game) occurs during an "episode" in which hundreds of thousands of users are all active. At the same time. Yes, I found that telling, too. Needless to say, I am almost certain I do not have "poor network" performance and really, unless they're performing some network latency tests on round trip time under the covers (which I seriously doubt) or doing some mathematically deduction based on TCP window sizes, there's no way an Android game developer is going to be able to tell me I have "poor network" performance. I will grant that it cou... (more)

One Simple Step Can Make Your APIs More Secure

APIs - application programming interfaces -- are an old technology that has become today's hottest method for getting critical data to mobile apps. APIs are good for business. APIs drove $2 billion in business for Expedia by securely exposing valuable content to its affiliate network. But there are hidden dangers to using APIs. APIs share many of the same threats that plague the web, but APIs have unique risk profile that must be managed. It is a mistake to think we can secure APIs the same way we secure the web. But there are some really simple things that anyone implementing an API can do, right now, that will minimize the risk of APIs. Here's one I've pulled from a new eBooklet by Scott Morrison of CA Technologies called Five Simple Strategies for Securing Your APIs. The tip? Turn on SSL for your API and keep it on. Most of us surf the web every day with no SSL... (more)

Why Customers are Unhappy with Your Mobile Apps

How quickly do things change in the world of mobility? Just last year, CA Technologies conducted a worldwide survey that told an entirely different story from the one we are hearing today. 2013’s Enterprise Mobility – It’s All About the Apps was a call to action for enterprise IT to keep up with customers mobility demands and employee’s desire for BYOD. If last year was about keeping up with customers’ mobile application demands, this year that issue has all but disappeared. Our 2014 survey respondents released an average of six customer-facing apps last year, and 71 percent of organizations surveyed are now providing mobile apps to their customers. So what’s the problem? Our latest research report, Mobility: Why Your Customers Aren’t Satisfied and What to Do About It, is a wakeup call. The survey reveals shockingly low end user satisfaction with enterprises’ mobili... (more)
