The Emergence Of Swift:
For the past few years, Swift as the new programming language has taken over the development landscape for all iOS devices. Swift rules not only iPhone app development but the whole ecosystem of iOS apps converging and encompassing several devices and gadgets including iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. Already iPad has established itself as the most popular mobile device to be used in business workplaces. The closely knit ecosystem of apps running across multiple iOS devices with full proof security measures is enough to make all iOS devices with their app ecosystem work for professional uses.
While the entire device ecosystem of iOS is becoming more acceptable and irreplaceable for business uses, Swift has been unleashed by Apple as the programming language built specifically to address these versatile and scalable needs for apps across iOS devices. The release of latest Swift 2 helped programmers delivering more compatible, scalable and user-optimized apps across the iOS ecosystem of devices.
A Big Boost To App Revenue:
iOS apps always have enjoyed more revenue flow than their Android counterparts. iOS apart from holding the highest number of paid apps among all the mobile app marketplaces also offer a positive environment for app purchases. While on the Android Play Store most of the apps are offered for free (at least for basic versions), iOS App Store helps its apps earn steady revenue with paid apps.
The recent trend suggests that free to purchase apps coupled up with smart in-app purchase options can really deliver good dividends to app makers. There has been a projected 25% increase for iOS free apps which is going to be a reality anytime soon and it is needless to say that majority of these apps will look forward to innovative in-app purchase options for generating revenue.
Cloud-based apps continue to be popular with their distinct benefits of anytime, anywhere usability and ease of access. We have seen in the recent past that a vast majority of iOS apps across the niches depends increasingly upon cloud storage for allowing ease of access across the devices. As accessing the same contents and same apps over different devices and locations have become a common phenomenon, cloud apps are destined to be popular.
