Mobile application development has evolved exponentially due to a greater demand for next-generation technology. It is basically process by which application software is developed for low-power handheld devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. Now a day's most of end users require mobile applications efficient with more processing power, flexibility, reliability and security which promise the ideal performance. These applications can be pre-installed on phones during manufacturing process or possibly can be downloaded by customers from various mobile software distribution platforms, or delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing (e.g. JavaScript) to provide an "application-like" experience within a Web browser. Smartphones and, more recently, tablets are increasingly becoming the computer of choice for more and more people and we can say that the mobile experience has become a part of our everyday life.

    Different kind of apps including business apps are as follows:
  • Asset tracking
  • Air ticket booking
  • GPRS road map
  • Vendor apps
  • 3D games apps
  • Social application apps
    Platform environments are:
  • MobileFrame Desktop
  • Cloud-based IDE
  • Netbeans,Eclipse
  • Visual Studio,Eclipse,XCode
  • Internal SDK
  • Proprietary IDE

After the completion of Mobile applications first it is tested within the development environment using emulators. An emulator is hardware or software or both that duplicates (or emulates) the functions of a first computer system (the guest) in a different second computer system (the host), so that the emulated behavior closely resembles the behavior of the real system. It provides an inexpensive way to test applications on mobile phones to which developers may not have physical access. After testing though emulator it is later subjected to field testing.
