Mobile Development Trends for 2014

The line between who is and who is not a developer is getting blurrier by the day. In fact, demand for mobile applications is reaching a point where end users are running out of patience waiting for developers to create those apps.

To address that specific issue, Modo Labs has released Kurogo Mobile Campus Solution 2.0, which now provides end users with the ability to create their own mobile computing applications.

Modo Labs CEO Stewart Elliot says that while Kurogo Mobile Campus Solution was initially designed to provide a platform to allow developers to build mobile applications, the company is now extending the mobile application development to end users.

viz20140428-02Based on Modo Optimized Middleware that supports both HTML5 and native mobile application development, Elliot says Kurogo Mobile Campus Solution gives organizations the option of either letting end users develop applications on their own or work closely with professional developers.

To that end, Kurogo Mobile Campus 2.0 provides a console that gives both developers and non-developers a simplified interface to manage the application lifecycle. As a result, any type of user can access data sources, modules, layouts, navigation and themes, resulting in data integrations being accomplished without any coding required.

Citizen developers of all types are taking more control over the application development process with each passing day. Because end users are generally closer to the business process they are trying to manifest in an application, it makes sense for them to be a more integral part of the application development process.

Clearly, mobile computing is one of the hottest areas for developing applications and there is obviously no shortage of mobile application development platforms. But when you start to sort out the ones that allow both developers and end users to build applications, either in isolation or collaboratively, the number of platforms that provide those capabilities gets pretty small in hurry.

Just because you can make your own mobile app doesn't mean that you don't want t invest in hiring a pro, the app stores are filled with millions of apps. Most of these are not able to be found even when typing in the apps specific name. App developers can be the difference between your app being functional and your app being downloaded.
