Mobile application development is a term used to denote the act or process by which application software is developed for mobile devices, such as assistants, enterprise or mobile phones. These applications can be pre-installed on phones during manufacturing platforms, or delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing (e.g. Java Script) to provide an application-like experience within a Web browser. Application software developers also must consider a long array of screen sizes, hardware specifications, and configurations because of intense competition in mobile software and changes within each of the platforms.
As part of the development process, mobile user interface (UI) design is also an essential in the creation of mobile apps. Mobile UI considers constraints, contexts, screen, input, and mobility as outlines for design.
