  1. 1. Mobile Apps & Widgets Intro to MobileTechnology: Section 2
  2. 2. Mobile Apps  Mobile devices are becoming more sophisticated, creating opportunities for mobile apps to extend functionality beyond that which the original manufacturer intended.  “Games” category dominates 1/3 of the app market
  3. 3. Stores that sell Apps  Apple App Store  Google Play  Blackberry AppWorld  Nokia Store  Amazon Appstore  Microsoft Windows Phone Store  Best app stores ranked by ABIresearch (Jan 2013) based on market share and monetization 1. Apple – 50 billion downloads 2. Google – 48 billion DL 3. Microsoft – 500,000 DL
  4. 4. Differences betweenApp Stores  Not all app stores have the same applications and not all apps are available on every platform  Example: LotteryHUB is available on the iOS and Android platforms, so it can be found in (but not limited to) the App Store and Google Play Store Available Platform(s) Available Apps App Store iOS 850,000 Google Play Android 800,000 BlackberryWorld Blackberry OS 120,000 Windows Phone Store Windows Phone 145,000
  5. 5. Apps vs.Widgets  Apps are 3rd party software programs. Apps only run when activated  Widgets are small applications that continuously run a specific function  Ex: clocks, calendars, weather forecasts etc.
  6. 6. Widgets…Why &Where Widget Benefits:  Add Functionality to an existing application  Create rich user experience and seamless communication channels  Provide faster access to information  Save time with live updates Widgets on:  Desktop – self-contained applications like games or clocks  Application – enhance functionality of an existing app  Web – monitor external events by extracting data like flight times or stock prices
  7. 7. Apps for the fully developed  Creating a mobile app accessible by multiple device platforms can consume large amounts of time and money – Unless one is readily available   However, the greater functionality and engagement opportunity can easily outweigh the production cost  Once created mobile apps are relatively inexpensive to update and modify  Widgets can be added to mobile apps with simple code insertion
