Issues on Smartphones to Watch Out For
Apps That Withstand the Test of Time and Familiarity
 Image credit: droid-life.comAs I was surfing the web one night, I came across a helpful blog that marks the difference between anapplication and a platform. The blogger (
Franco Travostino
) says that a good application never surpriseswhile a good platform never fails to surprise. Though the analogy is meritorious, he does not claimownership and is willing to drop attributions for the person who provides proper citation.Or else, it is best to sell cell phones to totally avoid this phenomenon.It is impressive for both the
to be the most salient platforms available for publicconsumption. Because of their enabling technologies,
have almost swarmed equalshares of the market pie and ostensibly kicked out all other rivals.Nonetheless, some issues are still looming in the way these two platforms are conducting their apps.The bloggers talks about the list of app issues that we need to be aware of (Thingsthatscale.com): 1.
Unanticipated Entitlements.
Know the gradations of app importance. Some applications arebetter than others. For example, try to sign of from your primary Gmail account on Android. Itwill not work unless the whole device is wiped clean.2.
Power Efficiency.
Make sure that the applications you are installing or downloading are notpower hungry.3.
Know If Certain Applications Work.
This is pretty easy to ascertain. If the app is okay, it willwork fine. If it does not, then we have a problem there. If the app develops a habit of abortinglaunch, maybe it i
sn’t going to work well in the future. Not now? Not ever!
Bad Coding Practices.
According to Franco, “The application development environments don’t
leverage any of the new ideas in software engineering, like Ruby on Rails with its built-in
unit/functional testing.”
The Platform Wars.
There seems to be only two styles of application that are emerging from the
tech market: The exclusive iTunes and Ovi and the openly generous Android. What’s dismal is
that we are waiting for other contenders which are ready to break the calcified monuments of the two software channels.
