iPhone application development for fun, business and everything
Apple still lays hold of a big proportion of US smartphone market. Comscore.com informed that Apple had 41.7% market share for its smartphones at the ending of September this year. Even if iPhone’s market share has been slipping year on year and was estimated just as 11.7% over the world, but its charms has not faded out so far. The recently launched two new iPhone smartphones further boosted Apple’ customer base.
So what encourages people to buy an iPhone? Apart from shiny packing, sophisticated hardware & software and super features, the credit of its popularity somehow goes to those programmers who have built a giant empire of apps for iPhone. The App Store has more than 1.3 million apps, and unlike Android apps, iPhone apps are approved to store only if they meet Apple’s strict quality standards.
