It goes without saying that the popularity of the iPhone and iPad has changed the course of the entire mobile industry. These gadgets are being embraced by both the consumer and the business market, and are accompanied by thousands upon thousands of applications that include games, social, and productivity-based apps, among a slew of other types.
Businesses and organizations sometimes want to develop their very own applications suited for iOS that are used for their own specific business purposes. These businesses can do so by using free and easy-to-use tools and controls such as NucliOS. These platforms allow users to create highly-visual native apps that operate on both iPhone and iPad.
These options are also attractive because they do not require extensive knowledge to use. In the past, businesses needed skilled developers to create such apps, but this is no longer necessary because of the capabilities of iOS controls like NucliOS.
Looking ahead, Apple products like the iPhone and iPad are expected to become synonymous with the corporate landscape, greatly influencing how firms develop mobile applications. According to Gartner, Mac notebooks and desktops will also gain momentum in sales throughout the non-corporate business world as well.
"Although iPhones and iPads are already accepted by enterprise IT in addition to Microsoft, Apple's Mac systems for laptops/notebooks and desktops are not commonly accepted by IT," said David Mitchell Smith, vice president and fellow at Gartner.
Ken Dulaney, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, explained that mobility in general has been greatly impacting corporate strategies. As a result, firms are realizing that they must support multiple platforms as long as the “bring-your-own-device” trend continues to gain steam.
Organizations that will be supporting iOS devices for the foreseeable future will be happy knowing that they can create native applications for these popular devices with innovative iOS controls, making it possible to create apps unique to their own demands and workforce.
