iPhone App Development Evolution: from the Very Beginning


Everybody remembers 2007 – the year when iPhone have worked up a mobile market. That was a “clean” mobile platform with no third-party applications on it. And the reason for it was simple – only few mobile web development tools and actual absence of iPhone programming language. Instead of it developers used JavaScript which was too slow and didn’t have desired functions. And on March 6, 2008 Apple have released much better decision for iPhone developers and the name of it iPhone Software Development Kit. From this moment the history of third-party app developments on iPhone platform begins.

The First Stage. Growing Variety of Apps

Once the app developers got an opportunity to speak with iPhone on the common language it was marked by appearing a wide range of applications. GPS, camera and acoustic options – none of iPhone features was neglected. From regular smart phone the iPhone became a real portable computer!

The Second Stage. Race to the Top

With growing variety of iPhone applications the increasing competition between app developers took its place. The reason for it were big shares of revenue – according to Apple policy 70% of the app price goes to its developer (or owner) and 30% – to the Apple’s pockets. This kind of competition has produced a new wave of innovative approaches in app development process and as a consequence of this – a lot of innovative and leading-edge applications.

The Third Stage. Augmented Reality

The overlaying of digital data on the real world has been named an Augmented Reality. And this is the nowadays reality! A new wave of apps hit the market and still boggles users’ imagination. The conception of augmented reality consists in the iPhone facility to remember figures and objects and to detect it in future. And that is really awesome!

The Forth Stage. Growth Capacity

There is no matter how many apps for iPhone exist for nowadays. Every next app may become a game-changing exactly as augmented reality apps did. That’s why iPhone app development has a really huge potential for growth and developers should be ready for really big revenues in the very near future.

Speaking in general words, maybe it’s not actually the right time to talk about the history of the iPhone developmnt or as we are talking here – evolution. This platform is too young so surely it will change greatly if we think about the period of for instance 10 years. Nowadays field of high-tech is rapidly changable – every day something revolutionary is being invented especially when it comes to mobile software.
