Next The Mobile Revolution...Starting with the Apple App Store-2 Next

When iOS and the Apple App store were launched five years ago, there was really only one smartphone that developers needed to worry about – the iPhone1. Since then, the mobile landscape evolved every year and we now have six iOS-family versions, ranging from the different versions of the iPhones, iPads (2,3,4, Mini) and iPods, all with different screen resolutions.

With each new version, complexity, fragmentation and compliance needs have increased. Now, applications that work on the iPhone may not work on the iPad, so it’s important to test apps across ALL devices and versions to account for the growing complexity and to avoid major bugs.

Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to the world on January 10th, 2007. In the five years since the initial launch, the iOS operating systems – phone and tablets – have redefined the entire world of mobile computing. In fact, Apple recently reached its 50 billionth download, while Google is behind at 48 billion. Today, mobile continues to develop rapidly and the Apple App store grows, reshapes and changes every single day.

Here are five ways that the Apple App store has influenced mobile computing over the past five years, as identified by Perfecto Mobile.
