Amid the buzz circumventing Apple, there is a change in iPhone apps development trends. These trends seem to shift towards business-use cases according to a study by iPhoneAppQuotes.com.
Previously there was a 50/50 split between business and consumer applications. This trend has changed and now there is 70/30 which is in favor of business applications. The users are demanding for applications mostly from medical, education, business and book categories in the iPhone application store. Gregg Weiss, founder of iPhoneAppQuotes.com, Royal Palm Beach, FL said, “The key finding here is that business apps are dominating app development quote requests, which makes total sense.” He also said “iPhone apps are just another extension of a business’s reach, both from the branding, sales and marketing perspectives, as well as the ability to sell their products and services,”
The smart phone application market is being dominated by iPhone applications. The Apple apps store offers to iPhone users more than 65,000 applications along with some of the most important functionalities of any phone. The trend reflects that both individual users as well as businesses want to go for iPhone application development Australia either to push their business growth through brand identity creation or to elevate their profits.
Even during the time when economy has been unfriendly, the mobile apps development market seems to survive through the troubling times as businesses and entrepreneurs have unmoving faith in it. During the first quarter of the last year to the second quarter there was 30 percent growth of business applications over consumer applications. However, there was a drop in number of requests for gaming applications and the same trend was viewed for music applications. IphoneAppQuotes reported that the inclusion of new categories such as new weather, sports and photography applications had also reached a stand still during the year 2009.
