Today’s customer is a different breed altogether. He wishes God for more apps than angels to wade through his humdrum life with its mundane chores. With Apps for everything that could be conceived, it wouldn’t be blasphemous to say that Apps are the elves of the twenty first century for the networked customer, ready to do whatever he wishes for.
He wants innovation although he isn’t willing to pay for it. Gone are the days when choice meant everything. In today’s Apps Yug, he is willing to forsake choice for simplicity. While the leading platform companies such as Adobe, Apple, Google are in a blood feud for dominance, with every player trying to create unique APIs and runtimes with nothing short of an audacious ambition to control the entire content of the Web, today’s networked customer couldn’t have asked for more.
What does this mean for developers?
In this blood feud for dominance built over ubiquity, Application developers are the Apostles who bring the customers to embrace the omnipresent platforms supported by the companies. These are indeed, exciting times for developers as more customers are moving away from the browsers and reclining towards hand-held devices with social features. With the growing adoption rates towards OS-based features such as location, multi-touch UI in these hand-held devices, infinite possibilities are emerging for developers to build Apps combining these whole new exciting features.
