Mobile app development for Ubuntu mobile may be skeptical

With a handful of apps and minimal advantages in the UI, Ubuntu’s mobile platform can be skeptical for mobile app developers.

The power curves in the mobile app development is directly

affected by the dominance of leading mobile OS ecosystem

in the market. With more than 90% of the users using Android and iOS alone, android app development and iPhone app

Speciality of Ubuntu mobile OS

Like android, Ubuntu mobile OS is also an open source mobile operating system that boasts of an intuitive UI. The

apps are sorted accordingly to the usage frequency of the user and there is a side bar as well for quick access. However, like windows phone, which could not change much

with its rotating tiles, many believe that small changes an

add-on in the UI will not make much difference to the status quo of the market. Even if the fluidity of ubuntu mobile OS is


comparable to that of high end android phones, people will

not switch to a new ecosystem when they are satisfied with the overall experience of android. Despite

While iOS and android app development has come of ages, a new mobile OS from Ubuntu might take time to germinate and match the standards of these existing ecosystems. Apple might be trialing against android devices, however no one

can deny that iOS’s fluid experience is still something that android lacks even after 4 generations of development.

In addition to it, it must be also understood that apps are driving the mobile ecosystem of today. Creating dedicated and exclusive apps are creating new segments of users.

Ubuntu cannot rely on the integration of devices alone as other competitors are already investing heavily on their


cloud computing platforms. OpenXcell Technolabs is a trusted mobile app development company

certification and also a member of NASSCOM. Openxcell has

its headquarters located in the US with its app development centre located in India.
