How cloud computing is transforming mobile app development
Smartphones come in a variety of makes. There are multiple screen sizes, OSs and hardware-software features available in these smartphones. No doubt, the variety gives people with options to choose what they like, but on the other hand, the same variety presents challenges to mobile app developers to come up with an app that works equally on different smartphones in a single ecosystem.
Take the example of Android smartphones which are manufactured by hundreds of companies all over the world. For mobile app developers, it has always been difficult to devise an app that works glitch-free on the entire Android ecosystem, but thank god we have the cross-platform mobile app development technologies and cloud at place.
Many businesses and mobile app developers are adopting the idea of storing their apps and date on the cloud, in place of mobile devices themselves. When the app and data are stored in the cloud, they can be accessed via mobile devices, but here, mobile devices do not need to store data inside them.
Understanding the cloud computing
Based on the internet, cloud computing is the technology where information / data can be computed, stored and shared online. You can choose from a variety of sources and implement them in an app. When applying the mobile cloud computing, things turn out to be easier for both mobile app developers and users. The storing and processing of data happen outside users’ devices, and only the results are shown in the screens of users. It removes the need of customizing an app – from beginning to ending – for different devices, in a single ecosystem.
The cloud computing has emerged as substantial technology allowing mobile app developers to create and provide excellent UX for app users. Many businesses and developers use these technologies nowadays because of their simplicity and improved deployment capabilities. Also, the cloud technology helps developers keep the cost of a mobile app project low. The cloud computing also offers developers with the desired scalability and helps in integrating data analytics and other complicated technologies.
As mentioned above, many app developers are already using cloud computing in the development of apps to attain desired scalability. It happens because cloud technologies come with server less nature to scale up or down whenever and wherever necessary.
Modern cloud computing have turned quit reliable when it comes to privacy of data and safety of the implemented solutions. No doubt the future of app development belongs to the cloud computing and many app developers have started to deploy it in their app projects.
