Mobile application development is the process by which application software is developed for low-power handheld devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. These applications can be pre-installed on phones during manufacturing, downloaded by customers from various mobile software distribution platforms, or delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing to provide an "application-like" experience within a Web browser. Our Application software developers also have to consider a lengthy array of screen sizes, hardware specifications and configurations because of intense competition in mobile software and changes within each of the platforms. Our core development technologies are as follows:
HTML 5
One of the remarkable leaps in technology, HTML5 delivers a number new functionalities and incredible web browsing experience It is also an attempt to define a single markup language that can be written in either HTML or XHTML syntax.

HTML5 includes detailed processing models to encourage more interoperable implementations; it extends, improves and rationalises the markup available for documents, and introduces markup and application programming interfaces (APIs) for complex web applications.

For the same reasons, HTML5 is also a potential candidate for cross-platform mobile applications. Many features of HTML5 have been built with the consideration of being able to run on low-powered devices such as smartphones and tablets.
MVVM
Model View View Model (MVVM) is an architectural pattern used in software engineering. It is a specific implementation targeted at User Interface (UI) development platforms.

MVVM facilitates a clear separation of the development of the graphical user interface (either as markup language or GUI code) from the development of the business logic or back end logic known as the data model. The view model handles most of the view’s display logic and is responsible for exposing the data objects from the data model in such a way that those objects are easily managed and consumed.

This separation of roles allows interactive designers to focus on UX needs rather than programming of business logic, allowing for the layers of an application to be developed in multiple work streams for higher productivity. Even when a single developer works on the entire code base a proper separation of the view from the model is more productive as the user interface typically changes frequently and late in the development cycle based on end-user feedback.
Programming Languages
Different operating systems favor different programming languages. Below are are the top 5 programming languages that we use

Javascript
Javascript is probably the most common and most recognizable of the programming languages needed for app development. It is used extensively in web browsing, and it has made the transition to the mobile world. Javascript is beneficial because it can be used across a variety of platforms without much difficultly.

Java
Java is object-oriented programming language that is platform independent. It is used extensively with Google’s Android mobile operating system. Object-oriented programming languages are organized around objects and data rather than logic and actions. Java works by categorizing objects and data together based on similar function as well as similar properties.

C#
C# (pronounced ‘C-sharp’) is the default (and recommended) programming language for Windows Phone. C# is an object-oriented programming language like Java, and it is based on the classical C-type languages.

Objective-C
Objective-C is an object-oriented language used with Apple’s iOS operating system. Objective-C makes it easy to scale apps for different devices (like iPad or iPod Touch). Using Objective-C helps developers match the look and feel of the iOS environment and developers can make use of the mobile device’s native functions.

PHP
PHP is a server-side programming language which shares similar syntax with other C-based programming languages, making it easy to pick up for C-based developers. PHP supports a large range of database types, making it ideal for any application that needs access to a database. PHP is also extremely flexible, allowing it to support object-oriented programming languages but it can also function well without them. PHP is a great choice for creating the interfaces for mobile applications, and PHP is very useful for simplifying the codes and functions of other languages.
